Dear All,

How are you feeling with the spring coming out, the sun that has been shining and warming up our gardens? And let’s not forget the birds singing 😊

Personally, I feel much better than the short, cold, and dark days as I am sure is the same for most of all? However, I might end up living in a warm and sunny side of the world :)) Apparently, is not only good for the “D” Vitamin but also for bones especially when they get older 😊  –  What about you?

Half Term on campus

Changing subject, we all started our “half term” for 5 weeks and I don’t know about you but I like when our campus is buzzing and it felt a bit strange when I went  last week on Thursday. It was much quieter than usual… This photo was taken at around 3.00pm.

In case you are around during this time, I have enclosed some weblinks of events on campus, as well as entertainments including family life: https://warwick.ac.uk/insite/events/events/ and https://warwick.ac.uk/insite/play/#Entertainment . Also, should you want to meet up, drop me a word 😊

Deadline, organisation, and time management

5 weeks is a good length for a break, but I guess as students we need to be vigilant and organised with our deadlines. I have all of them in May, 5 assignments plus 2 exams including a 10 000 words research project. Wish me luck! And if you have tips, please do not hesitate to email me, or reply to this blog 😊

On this subject, I hope you are time managing at your pace. Again, do not hesitate to share your experiences, thoughts, or ideas.

I have extracted two quotes for time management that I found quite inspiring and might speak for yourselves as well:

The key is in not spending time, but in investing it.” – Stephen R. Covey

The shorter way to do many things is to only do one thing at a time.” – Mozart

On this note, the Wellbeing department offers time management support with tips and steps to follow: https://warwick.ac.uk/services/wss/topics/timemanagement .

In a nutshell, please find below their recommended guidance for a good and healthy time management:

  1. Prioritising tasks but also allow some down time for your personal life
  2. The famous “to do list” and a tick to the task once is done which gives a sense of accomplishment
  3. Break times: organise them as many as you need even for 5 minutes to keep your concentration and energy level focused
  4. Try to be in a study environment to avoid distractions

Good Luck everyone, we are in this together 😊

Personally, I do recommend the down time, and everyone has a specific schedule so prioritising it around your personal life. I went back to Zumba and fitness and it helps me to focus better as well as adjusting a healthier diet (this often goes by pair).

On a final note, I hope you are adapting to the clock change from yesterday and making the most of the sunshine even with the deadlines. I tried to sit at least 15min a day under the sun which gives me a peaceful time and energy boost.

Have a great week all
