You’re busy revising for your exams. You’re spending a lot of time in the library.
And, now that we’re open 24/7 until Friday June 8th you’re able to spend even more time here if you want to.
You’re working hard. You’re committed. You’re going to succeed.
But it’s important to remember that your health and wellbeing are crucial to achieving exam success too: taking rest breaks, eating and sleeping are extremely important. If you walk into the exam room tired, hungry and stressed, your performance might suffer.
That’s why we’re running our Take a break campaign again, to help make sure you’re feeling at your best when it matters. Here are a few suggestions to help you get through the next few weeks feeling fantastic and ready to go:
“Colour me calm” notebooks & pencils
Research has shown spending some time doing something creative is relaxing and encourages the brain to function better. Why not pick up one of our fab notebooks, a pack of pencils and spend a few minutes away from your screen scribbling?
Word search & Sudoku
If colouring is not your thing, pick up one of the word searches created by library staff: there are several to choose from, each with a different theme.
Or, if you’re overwhelmed with words, try our Sudokus: fiendish and fun, they’ll keep your mind off of revision for a good few minutes.
We have a growing fiction collection in print and online which you can escape into whilst having a cup of tea or afternoon snack. Reading is calming and an excellent de-stresser.
When you do take a break from your studies, don’t forget to share your results on Instagram & Twitter with us: and watch out for more suggestions being posted online #CityLibraryExams. Lastly, please remember, however you’re feeling, library staff are here and available if you need help, advice or a friendly chat.
Good luck everyone!
