Techie Youth - Stress Management

At Techie Youth today, I learned several ways to manage stressful situations and thoughts. One of the biggest takeaways was the ability to remain calm and control your speech when faced with a difficult situation. When we feel extremely stressed, we are inclined to express uncontrollable emotions. However, taking and deep breath and gathering your thoughts can aid you in managing stress in that moment and beyond. We have the ability to control our response to these stressful instances.

Techie Youth - Investing in Your Health & Well-Being

One of the most notable things I learned at Techie Youth today was the value of one's wellbeing. In the article "19 Ways to Invest in Your Health and Well-Being," simple acts like sleeping and moving around have proven to strengthen one's health. Consistently hydrating was also emphasized, as this is something many people take for granted. Another difficult task for many individuals today is taking some time away from digital devices and social media. According to the article, time away from screens improves mental health, sleep, and decreases the chance of physical ailments. Trying to buy organic, whole foods whenever possible was another option as well. If you are really dedicated to improving your health, you could also hire a nutritionist.
