Valuable Lessons I've Learnt This Semester.

1. Pace Yourself.
Burn out isn't fun. It exhausts you and everything will not turn out the way you want when you are in this frame of mind. Everything you want to do is not going to happen in 1 day.
2. Talk. Write.
Any way to express yourself, whether it's talking, writing or something else is good. Keeping things bottled up will only lead to explosions.
3. People Want to Help.
Most people are compassionate by nature and want to help someone who is struggling if they can. But they are not mind-readers. Ask for help. Tell people what you want or need.
4. Exercise Is A Drug.
Exercise is key to keep your spirits up and feeling good. It does not have to be continuous to help. Even 10 minutes gets the blood pumping and endorphins going.
5. Listen To Your Body.
This is a hard one that I am constantly trying to learn. Listen to your body. It knows when its had enough and can't take anymore. Pushing yourself to a certain extent is good because it extends your limits. However push too much and injuries are very likely to happen.
6. Know your Limits.
This goes hand in hand with the previous one.
