In this episode, we're talking about feeling pressure at school.
Whether it's homework overload, tests, or teachers,
sometimes school can get on top of us.
How do you handle pressure at school?
Sometimes, you'll feel worried
that you're not going to get the results that you want.
School workloads can make you feel anxious.
We want to make our parents, teachers, and ourselves proud.
Sometimes, we might be afraid to disappoint.
Sometimes we might feel like we just won't get it all done.
And sometimes we just don't know what we want to do.
I'm love secondary school, but it is quite fast-paced.
It's usually the homework that bothers me.
There's a lot of it that they keep dumping on us and it's quite hard.
Exams make me feel so nervous, I get all sweaty and distracted.
# Oh, I've got quite a lot of work to do
# I can't remember when it's due
# But every time I sit with pen in hand
# Working hard doesn't go as planned
# I end up finding books I've read
# Drawing on scraps or climbing in bed
# I'll clean my bedroom and vacuum the floor
# Then mess it up so I can clean it once more
# I watch my concentration fall
# As all I want do is stare at walls
# My creativity flame's gone out
# Can't even remember what this question's about! #
Everyone has their own unique way of managing school workloads.
But here's some helpful tips.
Organise yourself so work doesn't pile up.
You can use a timetable to help schedule your time.
Take things step by step
by making sure you make time for taking breaks.
Eating well, sleeping well, and getting outside for exercise
is also very important and will help your concentration.
And once you've completed some tasks, or some study time,
why not allow yourself a little reward?
There's nothing wrong about being worried about schoolwork.
It's really normal.
Remember, school is important,
but it's not the only key to a successful future.
Stress starts when you feel like you can't cope with revision,
sitting exams, or the pressure from school, or family.
You can get help and find ways to cope.
Become aware of your problems early, so they don't build up.
Talk to your friends, family, or a teacher about how you're feeling.
It helps to talk to yourself in a positive, supportive way
and breathe deeply before exams and tests, so you're calm and collected.
Sometimes, it's OK to not get everything right.
Exams and school work are important, but not getting the results you want
doesn't mean you can't go on to be successful.
There have been lots of people who found school difficult,
or didn't say in school, and they still went on to have
amazing lives and careers, like some of the world's successful people -
Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, or even Walt Disney.
So, just try your best.
School's there to help give you these opportunities,
to help you find what you're good at.
I love homework, especially my language work.
I am proud of my neat writing
and I love practising it and showing it off
because I am proud of when I get points for my points chart
because it's neat.
That's all we have time for today, Lifebabblers.
