This forum topic is for students to self-organize study groups, etc.
Personally, I love to listen to music, play games with friends, or talk to my family members when I am trying to relax. Especially with the midterm coming up, I definitely feel that this is becoming increasingly important, haha.
Since quarantine started, I have found that going on walks and listening to music can be a nice way to clear your mind and still got some sort of exercise in without the physical strain. I also feel more relaxed after laying at the beach or a dip in the ocean.
I usually watch shows, talk to friends, play a game, or take a walk outside as a form of relaxing. Anything that I can immerse myself into that isn't school or work related helps me destress and get my energy back up.
I love revisiting my childhood by watching all of my past favorite television shows. Furthermore, I find this so interesting as I am able to see the show from a different perspective than I did as a 6th grader in middle school. This allows me to understand parts of the show that I never was able to understand before (due to my young unintelligence lol).
I either find a new show to watch or just get lost on tiktok--the time literally passes by so quickly while I'm on tiktok. All of said activities also include eating, so I'll usually try and cook too while I'm on my phone.
oh my gosh thank you for putting up this question! It's so important to remember to relax and enjoy the journey however corny it sounds:) To relax I love going outside and backpacking. Even its just for a single overnighter trip, it lets me forget about all my stress and honestly just reminds me that its not worth it to feel so stressed that we aren't happy. And honestly food helps with stress too lol!
I usually hang out with my roommates, watch Netflix or tik tok, and call my mom or my friends back home. I also find that spending some alone time outside, even if it's just for a few minutes while I drink my coffee in the morning, helps clear my head and calm me down.
After many hours of sitting in front of a screen, I try and get some physical activity and take my eyes off of any sort of electronics which is what I find relaxing. Whether it's working out, going for a run, or just socializing with family, the last thing I do is check my phone or engage in any more screentime than necessary.
When I'm not busy, which is pretty rare nowadays haha, I like watching TV shows/movies I haven't watched and play video games! However, I haven't done these in a while since I tend to fall asleep right after doing my work.
I usually relax by watching a drama or listening to music. Recently, I've been playing Among Us more so I use that to relax as well. If I have a lot of time, I like to read (but that hasn't been happening much with school).
I think it's really important to spend time away from the screen and to rest your eyes, especially now with all these online classes. I usually like to take a nap and play with my dog. I also think stretching is very necessary because it helps ease the tension in your muscles and prevent you from having bad posture from hunching over the computer all day :)
I love reading these responses! I'm glad we are all finding good ways to relax. Personally, I love reading books and always try to make time for it. I also feel a lot more relaxed after cooking new foods, spending time with my dog, or watching TV. I've found quite a few great shows over the last few months!
I like to nap and Zoom with my friends and watch TV shows or movies together. Even though we are online all day, so I probably shouldn't be on Zoom to relax, I love having a meeting with my friends at the end of the day to catch up on our days and hang out even if it is through a screen.
Hi! I play the piano so I enjoy taking a break from work by just playing Disney piano pieces or other classical pieces that I enjoy playing. I also like to listen to calming music such as lofi while I do homework to make sure I am in a relaxed state :)
I like to distract myself with relaxing music while laying down. The music can range from video game music (one song I like to listen to is "Dearly Beloved" from Kingdom Hearts) to classical music.

I love doing this too. It's really eye-opening how many shows have hidden messages or more "adult" jokes when you rewatch them. Spongebob is one of the shows that I always revisit, especially the Krusty Krab on strike episode.
