Ways of dealing with Exam/Assignment Stress:

Hey Guys!

As you can see I have been off the radar again for ages! Second year has started to take its toll now and it’s very hard to make time for things like blogging and youtube at the moment. In less than a month I will be free from second year stress like 5 billion things to remember about psychology and different assignments to test me on the same things!

I did just want to take a minute to show you how I have been dealing with the stress of assignment work. This may be different for everyone but I just wanted to show you how I have been taking a minute to refresh myself.

Taking a bath:


They don’t lie when they say baths are one of the most relaxing things a person can do. I love to just take one, even if I’m in the most stressful points of my life to just have a bit of me time and think about what I want to do after all the stress is over. Today, I had an amazing Rose Jam Bubbleroon bath which was filled with rose oil and definitely moisturised my skin while I relaxed.

Think ahead:

Which brings me onto the next thing, what I also like to do is think about what I have to look forward to when this is all over! By booking festivals, focusing on driving lessons and talking to my boyfriend and friends about all the things we can do after this stressful period it calms me and motivates me to get them done quicker!

Go for a walk: 

Literally, even if it’s only to the fridge to get another drink, it’s really important to take a breather from stressful stuff like assignments and exams. I have always found this takes away my anxiety just so I can breathe for a bit and not think about it.

Talk to the people that you love: 

I know that one of the things I love to do when I’m stressed is vent. Like really vent, my best friend Amy and boyfriend George know this better than anyone. They’re always there when I need to just have a minute to forget about assignment work and to motivate me to do more! So I’d say this is my biggest one right now, especially because my friends are going through the same thing I am.

    So weird! Are you a second year psychology student? I’ve been subscribed for a while (but haven’t blogged for the same reason) and I’m in second year at uni studying psychology haha
