Revision getting you down? Relax!
Share This Article:
With essay deadlines and exam season coming up, it’s easy to become snowed under your workload. However, it’s important to maintain a good balance between studying and relaxing. All work and no play will inevitably send you crazy, and you will find that it is much harder to work solidly for hours on end if you don’t take some time out. To begin with, you should set yourself a reasonable goal each day. This way, you will feel that you have accomplished what you set out to do rather than sinking into misery because you didn’t get through everything you planned to. You will be far more productive if you make a timetable and stick to it. Schedule regular breaks and break down each section of work into manageable chunks. Once you have finished, walk away from your books and try not to think about it until the next day. This will allow you to take a proper rest and stop you from worrying about how much there is left to do. Taking an occasional day off doesn’t hurt either. Set aside a day or maybe an afternoon where you don’t do anything work related and you’ll find that you can come back to revision with a fresh outlook.
