As a student you don’t really have any time off and the feeling that you can always study some more is almost always present. That is why it is important to plan your time of study and to separate work and leisure time. 

Seeing your studies as “work” can sometimes make it easier. Maybe you decide to be elsewhere then at home when you study, for example the library, to mark out that you are doing a job. It may also be easier if you plan your breaks instead of your working hours. It is important to plan breaks and rest and activities you wish to do during the week. Maybe these activities must be set aside during a period of exams but this is an active choice made by you. 

Studying together with a classmate can also be valuable when planning your studies. Studying with someone else can help you start structuring your working days.  You may also turn to us at the student health care centre if you want to talk in private about your situation.
