with all this waiting for nonrolling schools the stress is totally getting to me. i feel like it's infiltrating all areas of my life and spreading the negative waiting energy. arrrgh. here's to march being over because at least then we'll know where we stand. :) good luck to everyone.

Consider taking a run or something.

Seriously though. Personally, I'm one of those people who just can't relax. Since drinking wine constantly isn't an option, exercise helps a lot. Especially yoga. No joke... it forces you to focus on your breathing. At first your mind wanders back to whatever is worrying you, but after a while you learn how to clear your mind and just focus on the task at hand. You should try it if the stress is bad....

i think exercise actually has been proven to reduce anxiety/depressive symptoms... all those endorphins. sounds like a good plan.
