Sometimes we get stressed because we don't know what we want from a situation or a particular area of our lives. Maybe our priorities aren't clear, or we feel confused by having too many choices.
A fun, creative way to de-stress from this challenge is to make a "vision board". A vision board is a poster or book in which you assemble a collage of images and words representing things you want.

Vision boards can relieve stress because they help us identify and clarify what we would like to do, be or have in life. Using images enables us to visualize these desires concretely, like a list of goals in picture format.

For instructions on making one, here are some websites with useful explanations:
