How to avoid study burnout as a law student
Take your stress seriously
Pinpoint what triggers your stress
1. Study-related factors: is it exam pressure, feeling unprepared, specific course requirements, volume of study, juggling working and study, fellow students or your working environment including spending too much time at the screen? Sometimes there are multiple sources of stress requiring more than one solution.
2. Ways in which you react to stress. Do you confront it, ignore it, despair of it, talk about it, express it through anger, exercise because of it, fidget or fill yourself up with food? Many responses to stress are “natural”; some are helpful while others are counterproductive.
