HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF - PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH - WHILE STUDYING HARD? PART II
1. ONE FUN THING A WEEK: I try to do at least 1 fun activity a week, preferably during the weekend. Having something fun to look forward to makes life much more exciting & it’s a great reward for working hard! -
2. NO STUDYING BEFORE SLEEPING: after studying/working I don’t go to bed immediately, mainly because my head will be way too busy with processing thoughts about the things I just studied. What I do is watch one episode of a series before I go to bed. It helps me to relax and clear my head. -
3. SOCIALIZE: having social interaction with people is important! I often have to push myself out of my comfort zone because it is so easy to ignore it all and be on your own. Being social with people contributes to happiness & it also inspires! -
4. TAKE BREAKS: you shouldn’t push yourself too hard. Take a break when needed. Sometimes I take a whole day off without studying if that is what I need to get back to work fueled with energy! -
5. KEEP IT FUN: studying should be “fun” for the most part of it. Put on some music, a show on Netflix on the background, make a nice snack, buy some cute stationery AKA make studying as enjoyable as possible. Studying is like a full time job, you’re busy with your work most of the day so you might as well enjoy it! -
These are the things I do, but I might be forgetting something. If you have questions about certain parts of my lifestyle, feel free to ask them down below! 👇🏼 I hope you’ve learned a few ideas you can implement in your own life!

It seems like everyone goes to college and graduates these days, but even so I feel like we need to stop for a moment and appreciate all the time, effort, support that was invested in the process.
I’m sincerely thankful to all the people, especially my parents, who helped me successfully graduate and build a foundation on what I would like to do in the future.
A little reminder for anyone who feels overwhelmed, stressed out, or anxious: You are great and you can do it. Don’t pressure yourself too much about finishing that never ending to do list. It all starts with small steps. “The man that moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” 🌟 #suppliedbylily#studyingwithlily
