|I have been through a lot of stress and anxiety concerning school in the last year. While in that feeling its difficult to accomplish school work. I’ve tried many things. The best tips I have for stressed students are separating the area where you sleep and where you do work. Studying on your bed doesn’t work. It’s for sleeping only. Finding an area where you feel at ease studying helps. I favour the Junior Common Room. Big couches and oak tables fill the room. There’s a piano so students come to practice there. It’s a lovely environment. Plus you can take a nap on the couches if you get tired studying.I found taking one of those drop in classes at the athletic centre was really beneficial. My favourite was zumba on mondays. Huge turn out of people. Nothing distresses you like dancing to Top 40 and not feeling silly for having two left feet. Take some friends along and make it a weekly thing to look forward to.
Lastly, treat yourself to something after handing in a big assignment. For me, that’s visiting Carole’s Cheesecake company and treating myself to a slice of delicious cheesecake. Sometimes I have a nap in the sun. Even if I have another assignment to work on, I found it very important to reward myself and de-stress before starting the next assignment.
Thank you to everyone who entered, and good luck with your exams – blogUT is rooting for you!
