Goood ways to relieve stress?

Balance - one mistake I used to make is that I would overwork, to the extent that I used to go by the clock and nothing else. However I changed my approach during my MSc at UCL. Here’s what I did to help me: 1) work in sync with my friends - even though they were studying different courses to me, we still matched the times we would work. That way we had periods of intense focus, but were always together in our breaks. This definitely helped us to relax a lot more in our breaks. One tip though - make sure that you work in a silent study area of your library to ensure that you work and do not distract each other. 2) Take a walk when I felt overwhelmed or after each intense period of study - this helped me because it acted as a temporary relief away from working in an intense seated setting. I never emphasised this enough at undergrad which I do regret looking back (I’d often stay at the laptop and browse online which really didn’t do me much good mentally or physically) 3) Keep your distractions away - I often chucked my phone to the other side of the room or in another room. Also, where I had breaks in between study sessions, I’d still limit technology related relaxation, as I mentioned previously this didn’t help me mentally, and going for a walk or even just talking with others helped a lot

Exercise! Exercising relieves stress and can help improve posture. Meditation, and breathing exercises help too. If you type into YouTube ‘tips to relieve stress’ there are plenty of helpful videos.

Hi. Take an open air walk, breathe deeply and tell yourself that stress will not help you in achieving high. Study with breaks and try not to leave works for the last minute. These will help you cope with stress.
