Editor’s Note

Dear all,

The exam time-table is accessible online that not only means the end of the semester but that the exams are quickly approaching. However, let’s not get too despondent. There is something exciting awaiting us on the horizon and it is Christmas. I certainly am!

During our time in college, there is not that much time to be spent relaxing. Lectures, assignments, and tutorials are all terribly time consuming. However, I think we all look forward to Christmas where we can all take a break and chill for a bit. Sometimes when busy studying, you might feel guilty about wanting to take a break. And when you actually get around to spending some time chilling, you feel guilty that you took a break.

I urge you to practice mindfulness and being present in the moment, in the now. Many of us would be fully content with multi-tasking but often we might just do our brain a favour when we just focus on one activity only.

When you feel like taking a short break from study, take that break. And when taking a break, don’t think about the study. But when studying, just focus on the study. It’s highly unadvisable to be simultaneously studying and scrolling through Facebook. Otherwise your brain might get annoyed with you and you won’t be able to either study or relax. By being fully present in the moment, you are should be more productive and pleased with yourself.

I hope you all have a good week and should be present in the moment.

With warmest wishes,
