Self-care is more important during times of stress Here are some tips and tricks to help you take care of yourself all the time especially when you are dealing with stress from school.

1. List Time
Start out small and be consistent. Make a list of things that make you happy, it can be painting your nails, drawing, singing or even sleeping. It is important that you know what keeps calm and can help de-stress you
- Make the list of your favourite activities and how much time they take up!
eg. Painting nails - 10 minutes (25 minutes drying time)

Tips for making a good schedule
- Be realistic, you cannot review all your notes within 15 minutes so allocate more time towards it. You feel better when all the work is done
- Plan around your day and how you feel. If you're super tired in the morning, place your easier assignments of the day towards that time of day and leave the harder assignments for when you're most alert.

3. You Matter
Your mental health matters. Your physical health matters. Your personal relationships matters. DO NOT overlook these components because of school work. You will actually DO BETTER in school if you take care of yourself.
Devote times for breakfast or lunch with your friends, make sure you keep these relationships strong and that you have someone to talk to. When making your schedule be sure to include time for FaceTime or talking on the phone with your friends.
