Chapter 2 : Taking care of myself
There are two methods I use to relieve stress/release tension. Besides helping de-stress me, they also help keep me fit. You should try them too!
1. Going out for a long run to keep my mind off things.
2. Doing yoga exercises to calm me down.
Being stressed also impacts the amount of sleep you get. Sleeping is great because you never know what kind of dreams you may have. My favorite dream was when my cousin, Antonio, was alive again and we spent the whole time together. I was so glad to finally see him again. Not only does stress impact your health, but it also impacts your eating habits and the nutrition you are getting. Most of the time when you are stressed you don't get hungry. This doesn't mean that you don't eat. There are a lot of healthy snacks out there that are also delicious. Personally, I like frozen yogurt. The best part is that you can add any toppings you want to add to the flavor. What's your favorite healthy snack?

What things do you like about yourself?
There has been times when I had to overcome personal obstacles but the outcome was better than I expected. There was a time when I had a big project due in three months. I kept leaving it aside knowing I had time. Soon the day before the due date came and I had actually gotten very far on the project and was close to getting done. As I was finishing up, my computer died and all 54 of my PowerPoint slides were deleted. I was crushed and was just planning on not turning it in. I knew It would really impact my grade if I dint do it and my parents would be very upset. I stayed up all night doing it and was successful in completing it. Although it was wrong for having procrastinated to begin with, I was proud knowing that I had accomplished something by setting my mind to it.
