Girl Scout Lucy Stimson has decided to take a stand against stress. As we all know, stress is one of the commonest problems people struggle with. Lucy Stimson knew her community was facing a growing problem. Many people in her community felt stress was a huge part of life.
Lucy decided to take a stand against stress by creating a Facebook Page called ‘Making a Stress-Free Breakthrough,’ and has been posting tips on the page since April.
On this page, different ways to reduce stress are discussed alongside topics ranging from mindfulness and meditation to pep talks, and fun videos. Recently, she included a Stress Workshop Guidebook that featured different activities, such as, how to make a stress ball.

Lucy posted a coloring book for getting into the zen of artwork at home and an animal crossword puzzle that can be downloaded.
The project has helped me by opening up to my family about mental health. I found it in myself to tell my parents about my stress and anxiety. I have been using some of the techniques to calm myself when I get overly stressed. This helped me to put what I have been feeling into perspective, and to ask for help.Lucy
According to Lucy, stress can be so overwhelming and if care isn’t taken, it can consume you. Going through stress can be very tough and it is very important to help people around us work through stressful events.
Sometimes stress is so overwhelming and it seems to consume you, but that doesn’t mean that you have to settle for that. I have done my project because I have been there. I know how it feels, it’s hard. If I can help even one person, it will all be worth it.Stimson
