FYI, I’m calm now and am taking action. Pray that I come out okay.

    - taking short breaks from homework when I need it
    - watching an episode or two of The Office a day (not sure if this works for everyone, but idk I find the The Office really comforting and a good way to relieve stress)
    - remembering that grades aren't everything
    - remembering that one bad grade will not ruin my chances of getting into xyz school
    - distracting myself by making myself focus on extracurriculars (which is so much more fun than school)

    - Take some time off and talk to your friends and family (on topics that aren't related to school
    - Have some ice cream, chocolate and Netflix all to yourself maybe once a week when you can afford the time to
    - Make your notes interesting to read (bright colored highlighters, interesting drawings etc.) can really bring away from the stress when taking notes
    - Take deep breaths! Everything is going to turn out okay! :)

    I like to write in my diary, especially when I want to express an opinion or vent something that I can't really talk about to parents or friends. I also like to go for short walks outside.
