With exams underway, it’s important to take care of yourself during this time. Here are some self-care tips to stay well during the exam season!
Create a Plan: Exam season can be very stressful and overwhelming. One way to help relieve this is by creating a plan. Create internal deadlines and set aside time to do certain tasks. Schedule your downtime too because you deserve a break!
Clear Your Backlog: When you’re busy with school, other things that aren’t pressing might fall to the wayside. Having a growing backlog like this can be very stressful, but completing some of those tasks can remove some mental weight you might not know you had!
Take Breaks: When you have a long to-do list, you may feel like you have to work non-stop. Working non-stop can cause burnout and other long-term challenges, so it’s important to take a break. Re-energizing can be beneficial because you will be able to work more efficiently.
Listen to Your Body/ Mind: Your mind and body will tell you when you need to slow down. Do not ignore it! You need to listen, take a nap, or get a snack!
Ask for Support: As students, there are many resources available to you to support your physical and mental wellbeing. Please do not hesitate to access support. Check out our list of wellness resources here.
