Firstly, apologies for the lack of posting over the last fortnight. It’s finally the Easter holiday’s and I needed to spend some time not doing anything *too* medically related before cracking on with essays and revision.
How I wish I was going on holiday but alas I remain at uni. Although at least when the weather is good I can relax in my garden (definitely didn’t get sunburnt last weekend).
In addition to this, I am also starting to actually sleep. That’s not to say life isn’t hectic and trying to throw things at me every 10 seconds but it’s a start. The other thing I’ve tried to do (although not always succeeding) is to try and relax. Thankfully, our university has free membership to a website called Headspace.
It’s basically a meditation app, which has a free 10 day trial before you even need to think about purchasing a membership (you can replay previous days if you want to stretch it out). Membership is expensive but definitely look into whether your university, college, school or workplace can sign up to its Get Some/Give Some program.
It may not help everyone and I’ve never really thought about trying it before, but it forces you to stop everything for 10 minutes, focus on de-stressing and letting go of those little annoyances which build up over the day. (This is not an ad, this is simply something I have used which I found helpful).
Now onto the Easter weekend. There’s 2 months until finals so I should probably get cracking on revision after this weekend, but until then, I’m relaxing regardless of what happens (said confidently glancing over a shoulder).
