Question Stressed out - January 17th 2016, 02:02 AM

I live in Hong Kong, and the education system here is reaaaallllllly tough.(Google it!)
Can anyone give me some tips on reliving stress in schoolwork?
Plus, I'm not allowed to go out of the apartment by myself, and my mom never permits it.(That's Hong Kong..)

First suggestion I have is to take periodic breaks. Just step back and relax and do some deep breathing exercises to relax. There are also videos online that have relaxing sounds/music that you can listen to that will help you relax.

Have you tried talking to her about wanting to get out at times, either with friends or just in a safe area for a while for a change of scenery?

Hey there,

When doing schoolwork, as Michael said above, it's always good to have breaks. It might be helpful for you to study for 20 minutes then have a break, then study for another 20 minutes. This helps to keep you focussed.

Creating a study plan or routine is also helpful, and make sure you have enough time for the areas that you might not understand too well. This way you wont have to get stressed about not getting things done on time.

It's also good to have a reward for when you have finished your studying for the day too, as this can help keep you motivated.

When things get stressful, I really like Michael's suggestions of doing some breathing exercises, or watching/listening to relaxing music or sounds. Even though you can't go out of your apartment, there are loads of apps or videos with natural scenery and sounds, which can help to relax you. It would also be good if you could talk to your mom about going out- whether that's with her or with friends. It can be helpful to go for a short walk, as it can lower your stress levels too.

Hope this helped a bit!
