Tips for managing work over the Christmas holidays

This blog post was written by second year English student, Rhiannon Morris.

To a lot of people Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, so the last thing you want to be doing is sapping the enjoyment out of the holidays by spending copious amounts of time doing coursework and revising. However, as a hard-working student it is inevitable that the break will consist of an abundance of work due to the looming January exams and deadlines that threaten to put a dampener on your Christmas, and more importantly, time at home with your family. It is vital that during this time you manage the heavy workload sufficiently to adequately dedicate enough time to both your studies and home life.  Here are some tips for doing just that:

  1. Everyone works and manages time differently. For me, it is essential that I can relax and balance work with having fun! The holidays this year begin on the 17th December, so there is an entire week before the main event of Christmas day. I suggest using this week to completely enjoy Christmas and schedule it free of university work. With the exam period starting on the 16thof January, this allocates a further three weeks that can be dedicated to revision and coursework once the excitement of Santa has been and gone!
  2. Make a revision timetable. Keeping to a set schedule will allow you to stay on top of your workload and manage your time well. A schedule will make it easier to organise your work time around other events and a very important part of Christmas: socialising.
  3. To be fully focused on work during the Christmas break it is important to allow yourself time to relax and spend time with family and friends. This will improve your attitude to revision and coursework as you will be more cheerful and optimistic.
  4. Don’t panic. Despite the worry of exams and coursework, stressing too much will only hinder your ability to produce clear and beneficial thoughts. So stay positive, work hard, and share your worries with your family and friends when it all gets a bit too much.

Here’s to a relaxing and productive Christmas break!
