As we near the end of the year, it’s important to remember to pace yourself with your studies. 

Life is fast-paced but an overworked brain can lead to burnout. Here are some tips to prioritise your wellbeing: 

Preparation is key! 🤯 

Did you know Griffith has an interactive downloadable planner to assist in planning your studies and keeping track of assignment due dates?  

Break it up: 🤓  

Good time management and realistic goals can make all the difference in feeling overwhelmed. Break your studies and assignments down into manageable pieces. 

Focus: 😵 

Distractions, distractions, distractions! The world is full of them, and multi-tasking divides your attention and affects your ability to learn. Listening to music while studying can improve your mood or you can try booking a study space in the Library to help you focus. 

Sleep on it: 😴 

Eating healthy food and exercising supports the brain to rest when sleeping and allows your mind time to calm down and soak up the new knowledge. A happy, well-rested mind is one that has reduced mental stress and is vital for your academic life. 

Be kind to yourself: 🥰 

Be compassionate with yourself, celebrate your achievements and know that you aren’t alone in balancing your wellbeing with your studies.  

Remember your support system: 📞  

Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for help.
