Tackling revision stress

Juggling revision, work and personal life can be a tough balancing act so here are some tips to tackle stress in the lead-up to the exams:

Take time to speak to
someone…

It’s important to be open and honest about how you feel. Talking to friends or family can be a great way to relieve stress. Also remember you can always call the CLS team for support!

Remember rest is as important as study…

Revision can put strain on your mind and body so it is essential you get enough rest. Don’t push yourself too hard and risk wearing yourself too thin, take a break every now and then.

Relaxation can foster positivity…

Relaxation is another key to revision success. You need to know when to take some time to yourself, do something other than studying and just relax. It’s good to clear your head every now and then!

Do something
you enjoy…

Make time for your hobbies. Play sports, watch a movie, paint a picture… whatever it is that take your mind off things for a while. Stopping and re-grouping can do wonders for your focus.

Spend some time with the family…

Being around the ones you love is a great way to relieve any pre-exam stress. Especially in the lead-up to the January exams, do spend time with family and friends for a support boost.

Get outside for
a walk…

Just taking some time to yourself and getting outside can be a great way to keep your stress levels low and your motivation levels high. Exercise isn’t only good for your body.
