With the semester coming to an end, things can start to seem a little overwhelming between exams, finalizing assignments, etc.
The following content can be used to help calm those nerves and keep your mind at ease.
Tip one: GET A DAY PLANNER
Day planners will be your life savers. When you are able to see everything you need done for the week it is easier to keep track and stay on top of your tasks in a timely manner.
Tip two: MAKE TIME TO RELAX
Very few people can be on go-mode 24/7. In order to not go insane, we must find at least an hour out of the day to relax. Listen to your favorite music, watch a movie or play with your pet; just do something you are not required to do and it will feel like you have restarted your whole day.
Tip three: DON’T PROCRASINATE
Procrastination is easy to do, but hard to recover from. In order to not get overwhelmed, make sure not to wait too long to do your assignments to the point you have a work overload on your hands. Stop saying you will do it tomorrow and just do it now because tomorrow might turn into three days. Now you have two quizzes, four homework assignments and a project due in three hours and let’s be realistic here, you’re in trouble at this point.
Tip four: FIND YOUR STUDY STYLE
Everyone is different and in order to stay organized and stay up to date on what you are learning, you need to find a way to study it in your own way. You can take a free assessment at www.educationplanner.org to figure out your learning style.
No matter what stress comes your way, there is always a way to relieve yourself from it. The next time you are feeling overwhelmed, try these four steps out for a couple of weeks and see how much easier things will get for you.
