    I have started uni and I am studying civil and environmental engineering. So far I am really struggling with the work that is being set and the amount of work that has been thrown at me! My head is pretty mixed up at the minute and my studying is taking a backward turn.

    I am thinking about taking this weekend off and just chilling out with sports and other social things to try and clear my head, is this really wise? Or will I make things worse for myself? If anyone has any tips or personal methods to cope with the work and the workload I would really appreciate some advice.

    Thank you!

    Have you tried writing yourself a study timetable so you know when you're going to have time to get your work done? If you plan well in the week you can almost always have the weekends free to relax and de-stress
