However, no matter the good or bad, change can be overwhelming, and it can be helpful to find a way to help ease these transitions, such as finding a stress-relieving activity. This can be working out, playing a sport, joining a club (sports, book, hobby), writing in a journal, seeing a therapist, making art/being creative, or finding a good book to read/series to watch. For me, it is working out and finding a good show to watch. As a whole, I learned that it is important to find a constant that you can come back to whenever it feels like life is changing too quickly, as it can help you feel more secure and relaxed in those times of change.
What an insightful question you've posed! Your final year is a whirlwind of emotions, filled with anticipation as you prepare to step into a fresh chapter of your life. Simultaneously, there's a sense of mystery as you're about to take the reins and design your own path, having spent years following a pre-set routine.
In my own senior year, I began to cultivate the invaluable skill of critical thinking. This skill becomes increasingly significant as you navigate through life, making decisions that will shape your future - from choosing your prom outfit to selecting the college you wish to attend, if that's the path you choose.
Remember, it's also crucial to enjoy your senior year, as it truly does fly by. Life skills evolve with age and experience, so don't be too hard on yourself. Always remember to take a moment, and just breathe.
I hope this provides some guidance. Congratulations to the Class of 2024 - you're on the brink of an exciting journey!
