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.
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.
