Sleep is always the best medicine and some people find that small 20-minute naps can help increase productivity.
As students we tend to spend too much time on social media sites and answering emails, texts and phone calls.
Being a student can be a very an exciting time – with loads of new friends, clubs, courses and experiences with the new semester, there’s a lot to look forward to and enjoy; however, there can also be a lot of pressures with juggling part-time jobs, assignments and exams and essays.
Most stress occurs at our busiest moments; school, work and home. These changes can cause health problems if experienced to frequently.
Those are the most common places for stress to build. The body often becomes worn down making it more susceptible to becoming sick.
Good breathing techniques can put you in a more relaxed state as they send oxygen surging through your bloodstream, helping to calm you down and beat the stress. Make time for fun and for yourself even if this means that you have to schedule time away from your work.
Short breaks between working can help you switch off. You’ll hopefully come back to your work feeling fresh.
