7 Ways to STOP Yourself Having a Breakdown This Term

1. Start a colouring book 

Not just for children anymore, they’ve become super popular in North America! Their reassuring titles like ‘Color me Happy’ and ‘Color me Calm’ and not to mention studies showing its good for your mental health make them a sure bet.

2. Write a journal

My favourites ones are ‘The Happiness Project’ and ‘Life Changing Magic’! They’re a great way to keep focused on the positivity in your life and not get overwhelmed by the stressful end of term summative assignment bottle neck.

3.  Morning Yoga

The best part about yoga is you definitely don’t need to be flexible when you start. Plus, it can be free and less than 10 mins a day: simply type into Youtube ‘Yoga+ Morning+ Beginner+ 10 mins’ and VOILA- muscle definition!

4. Follow Positive Pages on Instagram

If you’re anything like me and love a good scroll of your social media, then this is the easiest way to make yourself feel good.

My favourites are: @keepitbright @treatyourselfwell @positivitytown

5. Listen to a Guided Meditation before you Sleep:

I love this because it helps you sleep deeper, whilst reprogramming your mind to become more positive. WARNING: Side effects may include jumping out of bed in the morning. Try these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVFqyXJaKm4 /  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vO1wPAmiMQ

6. Watch these Youtubers:

Between study sessions, in your down time, or whenever you are feeling overwhelmed these Youtubers are the perfect fix for a little boost of positivity!

If you have 10 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJQmmXpNUlI

 7.   Don’t be so hard on yourself!

My New Years Resolution is ‘Treat yo self’ and don’t feel guilty to. If that means getting back into bed and switching on a weird iPlayer programme between Lectures or having some extra potatoes for lunch- find what feels good and remember to breathe!!
