Day 14.

Stress levels: Still at a moderate low.
For the first time, I wrote in my journal/took notes during the sermon at church, and surprisingly it helped a LOT. Not because I was stressed or anything, but sometimes I get sleepy and my attention gets diverted during the Sunday lesson. I guess there is truth in taking notes while teachers are talking!
This also helps relieve my stress because I could look over what I wrote (yesterday) and reflect on the lessons I learned in church, especially if I'm stressed out on a school day.
There's something about being reminded of better things in life (or the bigger picture) that helps me keep my stress in check.
