As the end of the year approaches, many of us become desk-bound, whilst preparing for final exams. Here are some practical tips to help you prepare and make this a less stressful time.

Tips for making exam time less stressful:

  • Start studying well in advance
  • Organise your work space and learning material before you start
  • Check that your desk and computer are correctly set-up … see our previous article.
  • Make sure that you get enough sleep – at least 7 hours per night
  • Eat healthy food to keep your blood sugar constant
  • Don’t stop exercising – even going for a walk will keep you more alert and able to concentrate for longer
  • If you develop headaches, neck pain, or back pain come and see one of our physiotherapists for pain relief, exercises and posture correction.
