The importance of self-care
‘Self-care’ is a phrase you’ve probably come across, but what does it really mean? Simply put, self-care is the little things we do to look after our own mental health.
If you feel stressed about exams, you may feel like you don't have time for self-care, or that you need to spend all of your time revising. It is of course important to revise, but you’ll find it harder to revise if you don’t take the time to look after yourself. You might try to eat and sleep well, or give yourself time to unwind by gaming or seeing your friends. We are not machines – we all need a break sometimes!
When you're thinking about how to use your time before exams, make sure to factor in time to take care of yourself. You deserve it!
