From time to time we all stress out about something. Whether it be school, work, friends or family, stress seems to be the “dark cloud” in our daily lives. There may be times when you think that you might as well give up, times when you think nothing could be worse! But that doesn’t have to be the case!
Turning to television for comfort is something that we are all guilty of. Often, we take hours out of the days activities to sit and do absolutely nothing. But if we are doing nothing, then how do we feel better after that nothing is done?
The truth is that we all need to take a day for ourselves. Sit at home, watch t.v. maybe even whip out that quart of ice cream that has been sitting in the freezer for a day like this. I think that a perfect way to push some stress off of your shoulders is to watch Gone With the Wind. Not only do you now have a perfectly good excuse for why you were “unreachable” for four hours, but you also just learned something new that just might be the thing to cure your stress.
If Scarlet O’Hara just came to mind, then you know exactly what I am talking about. Scarlet lets things bother her only for a brief moment, but she soon pushes the pain right off of her shoulder by saying, “I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.”
Repeating this line to yourself every day, even if it be only once, will most likely make you feel stronger as a person, smarter as a human-being, and most importantly less stressed!
So for anything that is on your mind right now, whether it be past, present, or future problems you will face, take a deep breath and tell yourself, ” I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.”

Great post, Kassidy! I think we ALL get to that point where we just want to hide in a corner for a day or two. “Me time” is so important to help keep yourself sane! Just driving alone for a few hours helps me clear my head and calm me down.
