Happy new year!

So, exam revision and coursework deadlines are a top priority right now. It’s a busy time of year trying to juggle competing demands and responsibilities.

That’s why each year Library Services launches our #TakeABreak campaign.

#TakeABreak is about highlighting how taking proper care of yourself can, and will, help you achieve better results.

Think about taking regular rest breaks, going for a walk, having a snack, distracting yourself for 10 minutes, or leaving early to get a good night’s sleep. Pushing yourself to achieve outstanding results shouldn’t mean compromising your health and wellbeing.

With this in mind, watch out our for a range of activities and resources we’ll be highlighting over the coming weeks. We’ll be featuring:

  • Tips and ideas to help you manage mental and physical stress levels
  • Reminders about our extended opening times
  • Information on how you can reserve a study space.

We’re running an exciting online quiz with some super exciting prizes up for grabs.

Plus, we’ve got puzzles (including our popular sudokus), colouring in activities to help you unwind, and we’ll be giving away other freebies too.

And please remember, if you are feeling overwhelmed and need to talk to someone, there are so many ways to get support here at City via the Student Union, Chaplaincy, Student Health & Wellbeing, and of course Library Staff.

When you do take a break from your studies, share your experiences with us on Instagram & Twitter (#TakeABreak) and let us know how you’re getting on.

Good luck everyone, and take care!
