Hey, Lifebabblers.

0:00:090:00:11

In this episode, we're talking about feeling pressure at school.

0:00:110:00:14

Whether it's homework overload, tests, or teachers,

0:00:140:00:18

sometimes school can get on top of us.

0:00:180:00:21

How do you handle pressure at school?

0:00:210:00:23

Sometimes, you'll feel worried

0:00:250:00:26

that you're not going to get the results that you want.

0:00:260:00:29

School workloads can make you feel anxious.

0:00:290:00:32

We want to make our parents, teachers, and ourselves proud.

0:00:320:00:36

Sometimes, we might be afraid to disappoint.

0:00:360:00:39

Sometimes we might feel like we just won't get it all done.

0:00:390:00:42

And sometimes we just don't know what we want to do.

I'm love secondary school, but it is quite fast-paced.

0:00:480:00:52

It's usually the homework that bothers me.

0:00:520:00:55

There's a lot of it that they keep dumping on us and it's quite hard.

0:00:550:01:00

Exams make me feel so nervous, I get all sweaty and distracted.

0:01:000:01:06

# Oh, I've got quite a lot of work to do

0:01:110:01:14

# I can't remember when it's due

0:01:140:01:16

# But every time I sit with pen in hand

0:01:160:01:18

# Working hard doesn't go as planned

0:01:180:01:20

# I end up finding books I've read

0:01:200:01:22

# Drawing on scraps or climbing in bed

0:01:220:01:24

# I'll clean my bedroom and vacuum the floor

0:01:240:01:25

# Then mess it up so I can clean it once more

0:01:250:01:27

# I watch my concentration fall

0:01:270:01:29

# As all I want do is stare at walls

0:01:290:01:31

# My creativity flame's gone out

0:01:310:01:33

# Can't even remember what this question's about! #

0:01:330:01:36

Everyone has their own unique way of managing school workloads.

0:01:420:01:45

But here's some helpful tips.

0:01:450:01:47

Organise yourself so work doesn't pile up.

0:01:470:01:49

You can use a timetable to help schedule your time.

0:01:490:01:52

Take things step by step

0:01:520:01:53

by making sure you make time for taking breaks.

0:01:530:01:56

Eating well, sleeping well, and getting outside for exercise

0:01:560:01:59

is also very important and will help your concentration.

0:01:590:02:02

And once you've completed some tasks, or some study time,

0:02:020:02:05

why not allow yourself a little reward?

0:02:050:02:08

There's nothing wrong about being worried about schoolwork.

0:02:110:02:14

It's really normal.

0:02:140:02:15

Remember, school is important,

0:02:150:02:18

but it's not the only key to a successful future.

0:02:180:02:21

Stress starts when you feel like you can't cope with revision,

0:02:210:02:24

sitting exams, or the pressure from school, or family.

0:02:240:02:28

You can get help and find ways to cope.

0:02:280:02:32

Become aware of your problems early, so they don't build up.

0:02:320:02:36

Talk to your friends, family, or a teacher about how you're feeling.

0:02:360:02:40

It helps to talk to yourself in a positive, supportive way

0:02:400:02:43

and breathe deeply before exams and tests, so you're calm and collected.

0:02:430:02:48

Sometimes, it's OK to not get everything right.

0:02:520:02:55

Exams and school work are important, but not getting the results you want

0:02:550:02:59

doesn't mean you can't go on to be successful.

0:02:590:03:02

There have been lots of people who found school difficult,

0:03:020:03:05

or didn't say in school, and they still went on to have

0:03:050:03:08

amazing lives and careers, like some of the world's successful people -

0:03:080:03:11

Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, or even Walt Disney.

0:03:110:03:15

So, just try your best.

0:03:150:03:17

School's there to help give you these opportunities,

0:03:170:03:20

to help you find what you're good at.

I love homework, especially my language work.

0:03:240:03:27

I am proud of my neat writing

0:03:270:03:28

and I love practising it and showing it off

0:03:280:03:31

because I am proud of when I get points for my points chart

0:03:310:03:34

because it's neat.

0:03:340:03:36

That's all we have time for today, Lifebabblers.
