how to deal with mental fatigue
Hi, it’s werelivingarts! Exam season is coming so soon, and some of us might deal with a lot of stress and mental fatigue while preparing for the exams.
Here are some tips on how to prevent and deal with mental fatigue (before it becomes too serious and leads to burnout). Exams are just ways to test your knowledge and understanding, so please do not expect too high and take care of your health! 🌿
Hope that we would all do well! 😊
Getting back into school
Spring semester is coming and that means prep before classes! It's very tempting to not do anything before they start, but habits take a while to develop so if you haven't already, here's some things to start doing before classes start to make the beginning of this semester easier!
Go over syllabi if available
Start getting on your sleep schedule
Meal prep menus
Clean your living areas
Read for at least an hour a day (to get you used to dedicating time to studying)
If you have textbooks, start going through them!
Get your car checked and get your maintenance done!
Get your planner set up
Figure out your work schedule
Make sure the school is up to date with any necessary accommodations you may require and start letting your professors know too
Last minute dental work
Figure out vacation dates
Create a study plan and daily routine for discipline
If you find the textbook online for free, go ahead and share that link with your classmates they will love you
Learn to make some easy snacks like hummus, salsa, veggie soup, and fried rice
Go visit your classrooms to see how long the commute between classes is and figure out best walking paths
Put test dates in your calendar
Make a list in your notebooks about subjects, tests, etc to have a quick reference
Get a voice recorder
Make sure your computer software is up to date
Practice different focus methods so you don't have to try to do this while studying
Create or find a study Playlist!
Find a stress release activity
Make sure you have your comfort items
Look into mental health services at your college
Get baking soda for your fridge and sneakers
Find the library and know their hours
Please add any you do as well!!

tips for studying new vocab
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! I’m back with another post relating to studying, but keep in mind that these tips are not one-size-fit-all, so please feel free to implement if you think it will be helpful for you! I personally don’t like forcing myself chunks of words, so I think that learning through music and any activities you like such as watching movies actively would also be really fun!
Please share below if you have any helpful tips too! 💚🎉🤩
