    First take a deep breath and calm down!! Have a rest from your work. Your health is more important than your work! If you stress yourself too much you will start getting health problems and infections easily. Write down on a piece of paper what you're thinking of in your head and read it aloud to yourself. This is actually a good method to relieve that stress because you're writing down what's bothering you and try to think of a possible solution if you can and write it beside the problem.

    Music also helps to relieve stress - zen music is best if classical if you like!

    Hope this helps

    Hello,
    First of all I would like to say well done for taking pride in your work, that is why you are getting worked up, because you care, that's nothing to be ashamed about.
    Stop what you are doing now and give it a rest this evening, think about the amount of work you have done not how much you have to do.
    Tomorrow morning, I would suggest not turning on your laptop, but writing the 3 most important things you have to do, then order them into what needs to be in first. 3 is not that bad, right ?
    Work your way through, when you feel stressed, stop, get outside and have some fresh air. Then come back to it later. You'll be surprised how much work you can do when your thinking straight.
    All the best,
    Lee

    Stop thinking about the bad things that would happen if you didn't do your work, instead, think about the good things that would happen if you did do your work.

    More than welcome, to many people at my Sixth Form are getting stressed but when they take a step back and actually look at what they have achieved they surprise even themselves.
    Yes, maybe like a walk around the block, I'm not advising you do a marathon haha
    Let me know if there is anything I can do,

    Thank you
    You could also install 'Momentum' which is an extension on Google chrome and it is really helpful during study time because it has backgrounds and motivational quotes and you can type in what your focus for the day is and any to do lists etc.
