Waiting on the notification and announcements of the exams can be very daunting and challenging and can be taxing on your mental health. If you find yourself in a position where you’re exhausted and find it hard to carry on, please be assured that it is completely normal and you are not alone in this. These times are especially hard since the world was hit by the pandemic a year ago.
During the times where you’re pondering over why you need to continue, and you feel your motivation dwindling, it’s always a good idea to go back to the start and revise your original goals. Sitting down and making a list of all the reasons why you signed up for the exams and reviewing them can help remind you why you have been fighting so hard all this time. Maybe it had been a fervent wish of your parents, maybe it is the security of a well-sorted future that you have chasing, any and every reason that you list down will reignite your will to stay in the long run.
Along with the strenuous and long study sessions, we sincerely hope that you don’t forget to rest. Your body is the one that has been carrying you through these long and hard months of exam preparation, make sure you treat it right by giving it a chance to rejuvenate itself. You can do so by taking regular breaks amidst the study sessions. While you take these breaks, you can indulge in your other hobbies as a way to refresh your mind and body. Watching an episode of your favourite show, listening to a new album, or simply picking up the phone to talk to your friends can help fight the monotony of studying for long. Some other ways can be going out for a walk and being amongst nature, breathing the fresh air for a little while to wake your senses up.
