Childline has a page dedicated to exam stress which includes videos, games and practical tips for students coping with the stress of exams.
'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’re worried 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. While it is of course important to revise, if you don’t take the time to look after yourself by doing things like eating and sleeping well, and you don’t give yourself time to unwind by doing something you enjoy like gaming or seeing your friends, you will find it harder to revise. We are not machines – we all need a break sometimes!
So make sure that when you're thinking about how to use your time before exams, you factor in time to look after yourself. You deserve it!
