De-stress Top Tips


1. Make a plan -this could be making a revision  plan or  incorporating regular breaks into your schedule. If you feel  more organised this is going to immediately reduce stress levels.

2. Remember to take regular breaks and take time for you. It's not possible to spend your whole day productive and that is ok! Do not feel guilty for watching your favourite TV show, as that time is just as valuable.

3. Move your body - try a yoga session or have a go at pilates. Any movement you do will help you to de-stress.

4. Stay connected to your friends, family and loved ones. One way to combat stress is to share it with someone - it might just make all the difference.

5. Get creative and have time away from your screen - we have plenty of crafting activities for you.

6. Virtual study buddy - set yourself challenges with your friends and you can even work together on Zoom or Skype. Sometimes having someone to study with makes the process easier and you can share knowledge with one another.

7. Try not to be too hard on yourself (easier said than done!) but you are doing great things. Keep going, you've got this.
