Are you in the right frame of mind?


By Simone Dalling

Coping with exam stress as the exam period looms is the main focus of a revived event at De Montfort University known as ‘Mind your Head week’.

However this time ‘Mind your Head week’ will have a larger focus on coping with exam stress considering the exam period is looming.

It will take place on the week commencing the 16th of March until the 20th of March, where a series of activities will be taking place. This is to make people become more aware of mental illnesses as well as to support people in maintaining good mental health.

Each event will be held in different buildings on campus, some of the activities will include: exam strategies and meditation.

This week will hopefully ensure that students will be able to cope with the exam period in a healthy manner and also help students to create the right balance between handling personal endeavors and educational commitments.

One DMU law student, who did not want to be named, said: “I don’t think I’ll go to the events myself because I would probably go to a friend if I was stressed out about exams but I do think that it’s a good idea and could be very helpful for students.”

Another DMU student said: “I think it’s a great idea as it shows that the university really cares about our wellbeing. I’m also quite prone to stress during exam season, so I will definitely go to a few of the events especially the ones regarding exams.”

Although this week is being held in the build-up to exams, these activities will help students within their day-to-day life.

So please don’t be a stranger, hope to see you there.
