Between classes, never ending studying, homework and whatever else you have on your plate while being a student, it seems like every day is super long.
And some days probably feel like they’ll never end.
It’s important to decompress after a long day in order to stay sane.
Make sleep a priority
You’ve had a very long and productive day and the perfect way to recharge is to simply go to sleep. Allowing yourself to recharge keeps you energized and prepares you for the day ahead. Running on 2 hours of sleep and energy drinks everyday will eventually leave your body feeling depleted and sluggish. Not to mention it’s not healthy at all.
Take a break
You know all too well how it feels to wake up and hit the ground running from the time you wake up to the very end of the day. If possible, schedule at least one period during the day where you can catch your breath and take a break. Never underestimate the power of a short 5-10 minute period to be with your own thoughts. Ride in silence on your way to school or work in order to mentally prepare yourself for what’s ahead.
Not only is working out good for your body and overall health, but it is specifically beneficial for your mental health as well. Exercise is very effective when it comes to dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, and more. Regular exercise relieves stress, improves memory, helps you sleep better, and boosts your overall mood.
