It’s that time of year again where you have to get the end of school out of the way before you can enjoy your summer in the sunshine. With the end of the school year comes those pesky exams and hand-ins that you’ve been dreading for the last few months. We know it’s easy to get bogged down with the stress of it all so here are our top 10 tricks for beating the exam blues.
No social media.
We know we’ve started with a toughie. You’ll miss the latest Love Island meme, but you’ll be able to focus better without the constant notifications from your group chat.
There’s a massive temptation to just eat junk food whilst revising for convenience, but it’s best to try to stick to healthier options and keeping active!
Catching those Zs
Set yourself a bedtime, burning the midnight oil will only make it harder for you to retain information!
Music is a great way to get into the zone, play your fav spotify playlist whilst hitting those books.
Studying with friends
As Troy once said “We’re all in this together” so grab your friends and form a study group because a problem shared is a problem halved, and what you don’t get, your friend might!
Studying is important, yes, but humans are social creatures! Make sure to get out of the house every now and then and see some friends!
Poster- Calendars, bullet journals or just a phone reminder, get yourself organised! Set time aside to do specific tasks and give yourself a to do list and then watch as each of your tasks get ticked off one by one.
Energy drinks will give you that extra boost, but don’t underestimate the powers of good ‘ol water! Stay hydrated to keep going.
Have a break!
Eyes aching from looking a screen too long? That’s usually a sign that you need to have a break! You aren’t a machine, so make sure you give yourself time to do nothing for a little while.
Treat ‘cho self!
Having sweets is a great incentive to get the job done! A way to keep you going is to hide your favourite sweet on random pages in a revision book and when you’ve reached that page you get to eat a little treat #positivereinforcement
That's right. We have been providing sweets, chocolate and fudge for you sweet-toothed lot for 3 whole years! Since September 1st 2014 we have opened 4 shops, won awards, attended awesome events, built 1000s of hampers and picked 100s of bits of hay out our hair, tortured 1000s of tongues with our Radioactive Sours, met the Duke of York and almost lost our ice cream street sign to a very strong dog.
We want to take the opportunity to thank every single one of you for your continuous support and custom. Without you we couldn't have made it this far. And a big shout out of to our overseas fans too!
To celebrate we will be posting a super exciting giveaway later on today so keep your eyes peeled!
