Let’s be real. Being a teenager is hard. With school, sports, jobs, and trying to figure out your future everything can get overwhelming. Sometimes it’s good to take a break from all the stress in your life and just relax. So I’m gonna give you some things you can do when you just want to get away from all the hard stuff.

First off, I don’t really know what guys like to do. So I’m just gonna guess about something you can do to relax. You could get some friends together and play basketball if that’s something you like to do or you could play another sport you enjoy. If you don’t like sports, you could play video games. Everyone likes video games. Something out of the box you could do is build a puzzle or play a board game. Wow isn’t that crazy something you could do that doesn’t involve anything electronic. That’s something our generation knows nothing about so give it a try and see how you like it. 

Okay now, girls, I’ve got a lot of things you can do to relax. You could invite some friends over and have a movie night. Just being with people that care about is something you can do to feel better when you’re overwhelmed. Go get yourself some ice cream. Reward yourself for all the hard work you’ve down while at school. Your face is probably gonna break out from eating ice cream so do a face mask and watch some funny youtube videos. Also while you’re watching youtube videos with your face mask on write down how your day went and let everything out that didn’t go so well. If you keep it all bottled up, you’ll just get more and more overwhelmed.

The main thing to do for both guys and girls is just relaxing and enjoy high school. All the minor things that are going on in your life aren’t going to matter in a year. Get involved and go to everything you can go too. You won’t ever get these moments back.
