On How Not to Feel Guilty for Taking a Personal Mental Health Day while in college

  • eat chocolate
  • wear sweats, hell stay in them for the next two days if you have to
  • study for the test you have tomorrow while eating copious amounts of junk food
  • watch SNL reruns
  • vent to friends and roommates
  • ignore your phoneImage
  • get yourself caught up on your writing assignments so that you won’t be behind once you recover
  • Tumblr
  • DO NOT WORRY ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE MISSING ONE MEETING BECAUSE YOU HAVE AN UN-TREATED ANXIETY DISORDER
  • breathe
  • talk to your “person” (that’s right I’ve found one)
  • read your favorite magazine
  • take a long hot shower or bath, whichever you prefer
  • drink some hot tea
  • stare at some hotties (see what I did there?)
  • watch your favorite tv shows and/or movies
  • find a dog or cat to cuddle with
