GCSE Revision - Stress Busters

30th April 2014

The relentless revision and pressure of the impending GCSE exams can be daunting, and the stress can become overwhelming if you don't know how to combat it. 

An overload of stress can actually cause the brain to shut down, aswell as making you ill. Not a very effective way to power through all those notes! 

We've listed the best ways to source the cause of your stress and stop it before it's reflected in your GCSE results ;

1. Identify the cause of your stress. You may think it's revision that's stressing you out, but maybe there are other factors contributing. Is there a relationship that causes you stress? Is there too much clutter in your life? Take some time to write down all the things that are bothering you. 

2. Make a plan. If you want to combat the causes of stress in your life, you'll need a comprehensive plan to tackle it. Make time in your schedule for relaxation, vow to take as long as it takes to tidy your workspace or room, avoid those people or toxic friendships which drain you. 

3. Relax your mind and body. Excercise is a great stress buster, and can be as simple as a brisk 15 minute walk on a revision break. Exercise gives you endorphins, and endorphins make you happy. 

4. Make time for things you enjoy. You may think you don't have time, but something as simple as meeting a friend for coffee for half an hour could leave you feeling a lot better. A problem shared, and all. 

5. LearnThruMusic. Listening to music can do wonders for your state of mind, but may serve as a distraction if there's some revising that needs all of your attention.
