    Hi,

    I have recently discovered an effective stress relief method that I have been trying out and... it works!

    I started by trying to meditate everyday - nope! Couldn't get myself to sit down in silence and do nothing for 5 minutes. I just felt I was too busy.

    Then I started by trying to write a diary entry everyday. It sort of went to plan however it was less about my day and more about the issues I encountered.

    Finally I came to my favourite method. I would write a small paragraph about how my day had gone overall. Next I would draw a 2-way table, one side reading 'positives' and the other 'negatives'. I would then fill this table with what I felt when well on that day and also the things that had a negative impact on me. Once the negatives were written, I would start a new paragraph. This would become the solutions to the negative things I encountered.

    I found that this method really cleared my head at the end of the day. Instead of my mind whizzing and having problems stuck in there I had clear thoughts and was ready for a good nights sleep. I recommend you try it too! Let me know down below how you found it.

    So you keep it in like a journal/note book, right?

    I was gonna suggest ripping up a magazine but your idea is probably healthier.
