Connect with the teaching staff and other students. If you ever have any questions, send your teacher an email or put your hand up in zoom or the app you are using for class.
Don’t be shy to ask a question or to connect and share your thoughts with the group. It is hard enough studying by yourself during stressful times - work together to help you stay connected.
All of this will not only consolidate what you are learning but help you stay connected in what you are doing as well as to each other which is so important.
4. Check in on yourself
Whether it is during times of crises or through a stressful learning patch, checking in on yourself is really important to ensure you are prioritising your mental and physical health.
We know good food, sleep and exercise are important for our physical health but they also play a crucial role in keeping our mental health in check.
Get outside, go for a walk, do some yoga, read a book or take some time to check in and focus on self care. If you are feeling down or overwhelmed, let someone know. A parent, friend or teacher you trust could help you with support during a time of difficulty.
