Duo for stress
Today for the very first time, I went one Duolingo to relieve my high stress level. Am I the only one who has ever done this? It seems to have worked a little. Maybe I should do this more often lol
This is a bit embarrassing to admit... But, I had a mental breakdown a couple of days ago. I think I completed more lessons than I usually would in one day, and I eventually finished my French reverse tree. So, no, you are definitely not the only one.
In fact, it's a bit of a habit for me to use Duolingo extensively whenever I'm stressed.
Stress is a silent killer, studies link it to health issues, heart attacks etc... I have watched many folks burn out over my career because they could not manage stress. Learn to manage it train yourself to reduce it, some folks feed it as a motivator that's not healthy.
Do something to take your mind off it. Working out or playing video games that require focus is my go to. Anything to refocus the mind on another task, Duolingo would serve that purpose.
and no I'm not some hippie, two engineering degrees an MBA run my own company. Knowing when to stop and take a break is as important as knowing when to roll up your sleeves and get to work.
