Stress may be considered a heavy subject for a person my age (16). In my perception, stress is excess of burden on the brain. For me, anything serious, which may be small for another person, leads to stress. It builds in the blink of the eye.It gets build up when I think of what I have done with my life, how am I different from others, What can I do to achieve my goal, my career, my dream, my ambition. And its just brought on with the urge to fulfil my desires but also when I try to cope up to the expectations of my parents. How will I lose weight? How can I get into the best college? How will I be the ideal child that my parents desire. Whenever I think of these things, I end up in a foul mood. I'm sure I am not the only one who faces these problems.
I don't think I'm the kind of person who could just listen to music and put my stress aside. Neither do I think that I could do something as dramatic as shouting my head off. Yet, I have tried all these things and have failed a number of times. Thinking of what I could do to put my stress aside makes me worry more and, as a result, adds to my stress.
Then following up my aspiration to lose weight, I started jogging in the park early morning. I began liking it and felt that I was on top of the world. The sound of birds chirping, the beauty of sunrise, cold zephyrs, fresh oxygen, grass glistening with due... It even helped me finding myself. It's been like three months since I started jogging and my quality of life has improved. My grades have gone up reasonably , I have answers to questions, which I never thought I would have and I feel more happy. Yet, there are things which still trouble me but I know I can live with them. Life is full of problems. Clearing your mind gives you strength to face those problems.
