Looking after your mental and physical wellbeing is always important, especially as a Year 12 student. During the current lockdown and period of remote learning, this becomes even more important. Technology and screens are likely to occupy a significant portion of each day, as you’ll now be using them for education, socialising and entertainment—more than ever before.

Factor in time spent away from screens, and schedule time to be active every day. Get outside for a walk or run, do yoga, meditate – whatever works for you.

If possible, have a designated workspace that you use for schoolwork and nothing else. This will help you remain focused—when you are in that space you are there to work. Although it may seem tempting to work from your bed, this is something to be avoided.
