How to balance revision & exams with your relationship
Share This Article:
Easter revision cramming and summer exams are almost here. Making it work when the work piles up can be difficult, but whilst it's important that you prioritise the studying, here's a few tips to help you balance it with keeping a healthy relationship. 1. Make special plans Much as it might seem necessary as exams get closer, you can't be studying 24/7 unless you want to have a breakdown before you even get to the big day. It's still important to relax and reward yourself, and in fact it can keep your motivation levels high if you do. Plan to study through the day, then on an evening do something nice together, whether it be cooking a nice meal, a cinema trip, or a greasy takeaway as a break from the dryness of the revision notes. 2. Don't mix work with pleasure Whilst 'study buddies' may seem like a good way to kill two birds with one stone, it isn't always the case. Not only can working with your partner be a major distraction, but it takes the reward out of seeing each other when you've already spent all day in the library moaning.
