During tough times

By Saada, James Logan Healthy Eagle| One way I take care of myself through difficult times is by drawing. When I’m sad or mad, I go to my room to get a piece of paper and a pen and just draw an animal. I like to draw anime and animals and hang them up on my wall. I think I have about 23 pictures on my wall already. 

Another thing I do during difficult times is play music really loud on my TV with my door closed so my mom can’t hear it. The kinds of music I like to listen to are hip hop, R&B, and chill music that puts me to sleep. 

Lastly, I like to rest and take a three-hour nap, and when I wake up, I take a shower and eat, then I go right back to sleep. All these things make me feel relaxed and calm.
