Study tips

Here's a few helpful tips to get you through this season!

Plan ahead.

Creating a schedule for your winter holiday plans can help you feel better prepared and more able to cope with changes that occur during this season.

Don't be afraid to set boundaries.

There's much more pressure to participate in events that may feel overwhelming, but it's perfectly acceptable to decline an invitation, so don't burn yourself out by trying to attend events you'll find difficult.

Take sensory breaks.

It's easy to get overwhelmed with intensified social interaction and sensory input, sometimes going to a quiet space to recharge can help you feel a lot calmer.

Ask for help when you need it.

Recognising when you're struggling and reaching out for help can make a huge difference, as it gives you access to a support system you may not of had before. Queen Mary's councelling service and DDS may be able to direct you to the most suitable organisation to assist you throughout December.
