More often than not we use negative self-talk when we describe how we study. This is definitely not going to help our academic success as the only message our sub-concious is getting is that we are a failure. Wherever possible try to use positive self-talk or affirmations (even if you don't believe them yet). If you keep saying these things your sub-concious will finally start to believe you and make the necessary changes in your brain and body to turn your academic success around. Saying these things once is not enough. Why not make it a daily mantra when you get out of bed, when you are cleaning your teeth, walking the dog or doing some regular daily activity.

Wellbeing is an essential part of your academic success, This covers many things including diet, exercise and sleep. Sometimes it is hard to keep all of these things in check, especially around exam time. If you find it hard to balance all of these things then pick one aspect of each that you think you can make a positive change to. For example:
Sleep - Make sure you turn off your phone before you go to bed so you don't get any interruptions.
Diet - Make sure you don't skip breakfast. Check the Diet Resources for some great breakfast ideas.
Water - Increase your water intake by 1-2 glasses a day.
Exercise - For every 50 mins of study you do leave your desk and do 10 minutes of exercise. (Stretching, yoga, kick a footy in the backyard).
There are plenty of great resources in the iAm being in Balance section if you want to get some more ideas to help you stay in balance.
