Look after your Mind this Exam Season
The HSC and IB years can be a stressful and anxious period. The pressure students experience can be so consuming it blocks out any view of the outside world. Study stress and anxiety can be alleviated with a holistic approach to study that incorporates activities to look after mental health.
In collaboration with the Newington College Counselling Support Team, the Library has collected a variety of print and electronic resources that students can use to ‘find a balance’ during this time.
The Looking After Your Mind webpage contains links to apps, websites, online support portals, and face-to-face programs, focussing on the following themes:
- Looking after yourself – managing stress
- Sleeping well
- Managing study
- Getting support
Resources are also displayed in the Library, along with materials for colouring and origami – tactile mindfulness activities that are great to do during a ‘study break’ to encourage well-paced and focused study sessions.
The Library team wishes all boys the best of luck as their final exams approach.
