Scenario: it’s exam time right now. You’re going stir-crazy from sitting and studying alone in your room, and when you do decide to take a break you can’t really do anything because it’s dark and freezing outside. Also, all your friends have left you because they’re busy studying, too, so you haven’t had any proper human contact for a while.
So what can you do? Take a break and do one (or all) of these things, all from the warmth and comfort of your own room!
1. Phone a friend.
Even if it’s just your little brother, having a chat about anything but school is great way to get your mood up. Also, talking on the phone whilst lying across your bed is just so retro and cool and totally a 90’s kid thing to do.
2. Listen to music.
Christmas music, if it suits you. Belt those carols out. Maybe try the Jingle Bell Rock dance. Own that Christmas spirit!
Don’t celebrate Christmas? That’s alright, just stick to the seasonal-but-not-religious stuff like Mr. Grinch.
And while you’re listening to that, make sure to note your favourite insults for the next time someone breaks your heart.
3. Drink tea. Stave off that cold!
Make sure you take care of yourself, both mentally and physically. Best of luck on your exams! 🙂
