Resources over the Christmas break
Revision and Rest
The Christmas break is a period where workloads might increase and taking time to relax can seem like an impossible task. Nevertheless, it’s very important that we take time to look after ourselves. Resting and relaxing can massively improve our overall wellbeing, as well as helping us to avoid burn out. Take a look at our guides to revision and rest, looking after wellbeing at home and our wellbeing ideas calendar for inspiration.
By adding structure to our days, and allocating time for our wellbeing, it allows to switch off and be more productive in the time we do spend working. By planning and structuring your day by using our revision wellbeing planner, we hope you can keep focused and motivated before January assessments. For inspiration on how you can look after your wellbeing, check out this wellbeing ideas calendar for a daily inspiration of keeping both your body and mind safe and well.
Whether you are travelling home or staying in Manchester, winter is a chance hibernate away and relax. So why not embrace the Scandinavian concept of Hygge. The word comes from a Norwegian word meaning ‘wellbeing’ and is a centuries old Scandinavian / Danish concept that’s used to describe a moment or feeling that is cosy. By putting a little more comfort into your life, you can improve your overall wellbeing as taking the time to rest and recover from the outside world can recharge your batteries for the New Year.
