Back to school: How to beat exams stress| 5 Hacks / tips

Hello earthlings😛

With all the back-to-school fun going on,I decided to give you some hacks/tips on how to beat exams stress. I know for some people,it’s a bit too early for finals & exams but let’s just start the year on a happy note. Don’t worry,I’m not going to tell you to study early,to sleep well and drink water..,to make a study timetable because I’m sure you know about it.  I hope you like these few tips that might be helpful to you and give it a like! I’m also accepting guest posts so shoot me an email if you are interested. Let’s explore the stress-free top tips🙂



  1. High density fun 

Let me explain: The concept of taking breaks while studying is good but I think it’s also okay to actually take a few days breaks before your exams. Try to finish your revision few days before the exam [ Last minute studying is stressful by the way] and go on a road trip,or visit a country,or do things you like[nature walk perhaps],to cut off completely from your routine.[ This mental break is important and it also makes you retain a lot easier what you studied  since you are less stressed but Please don’t do anything risky and dangerous ]. Return two days before the exams and then lightly review the material and refresh your mind. You are then good to go to conquer your exams😛

2. Be active and listen to classical music 

Classical music can create a positive and productive environment by elevating your mood and encouraging you to study more effectively and for longer. Classical music is recommended as the best type of music to boost your brain power but ambient music can work too.A number of academic studies recently showed 
listening to classical music benefits the brain, sleep patterns, the immune system and stress levels — all helpful when 
facing important exams. If possible skip your usual playlist,skip TV shows and gives your mind space. And you can sing or maybe dance😛


3. Play with puppies and surround yourself with pets or[bubble wrap]

Lots of universities have installed ‘puppy rooms’ where students can come to relieve stress and anxiety. Pets have also been found to help you focus while studying,right the happy hormones😀 And don’t hang out with people who makes you feel stressed!

Popping bubble wrap is another stress reliever you can save for home study. Play with kids or draw can help


4. Do some cleaning 

Studies reveal that cleaning your room have positive impacts on your brain and feeling tidy,and organised will make you feel less stressed. And while cleaning your room,you might find lots of things and toys and travel in time. Taking a shower,a hot bath might also help!

5. Unplug

It is very simple,just take a techno break , a study break and unplug your mind. Visit a relative,an old friend,meet new people,visit an orphanage and do things out of the box.


Then :Pause. Connect. Reset

I’m not an expert but hope it helped!  Good luck to those having exams🙂

DIY Picnic ideas & Hacks

Sometimes it’s good to just hang out with your favorite people,go out,breathe in the fresh air and give yourself a break🙂 If you don’t want to go hiking,jogging maybe having a picnic might be a great idea..  Here are some DIY picnic ideas /food/hacks🙂


  1. Jar salad.

Simply choose your ingredients and you have a ready-to-go healthy salad








2.DIY tent 

If you plan to stay a little longer and want to make a tent,follow these steps

Things you will need:

  • Seven 7 foot long sturdy sticks about an inch and a half thick
  • Rope or twine
  • A scissor
  • Zip ties or binder clips (optional)
  • 3-4 yard pieces of fabric
  • A few large rocks
  • Pillows and blankets

Take three of your sticks and make a tripod. Cut a long piece of twine and wrap it around the top end of the tripod securing all three pieces together. Make sure you go around, on the bottom and in between each piece of wood to get a good hold.
2. Repeat for a second tripod.
3. Separate the tripods according to how big you want your tent and the length of your last stick which will act as the roof structure of your tent.
4. Rest the ends of your last stick across the top of each tripod for a place to hang your fabric.
5. For a large two person tent you will need two pieces of long fabric to create your tent. Tie one end of the fabric by the top of your tripod and the other end at the center of your roof stick. Stretch the fabric out diagonally back towards the ground and place large stones on the back side to keep the fabric down and create the shape of your tent.
6. Repeat on the other side with the second piece of fabric.
7. You can use a binder clip to secure the two pieces of fabric together so the wind doesn’t separate them.
8. If you want to make a tent for just one person you can use one tripod to drape or stretch out two side by side to make it a little roomier.
9. Then all you need to do is throw a blanket down with some pillows, a picnic basket, a book and anything else you want to keep you company on your fabulous day of sun and relaxation.



3.Plan your bag !

The Galaxy Tag | DIY Galaxy

Hey guys,I don’t know about you but I’m totally amazed by the universe,the milky way,the galaxies.. so when I was on pinterest,I saw a bunch of DIY galaxy stuff and I thought that it would great to share some with you🙂 These DIY look extremely difficult but it’s actually very easy.

*Prepare for a splash of color on your screen * Okay,let’s get into the galaxy😛

1.DIY galaxy starbucks drink

You can make your own DIY starbucks drink at home and you’ll need edible glitter,food colouring mainly shades of blue,pink,purple .,ice,milk,vanilla ice cream,whipped cream,vanilla extract,an empty starbucks cup.

Put some ice  in the blender,then take 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream and 1 cup of milk ,and vanilla extract and put it in the blender.Blend everything.

When it’s all mixed up,divide the mixture into 3 different containers,and add the blue food color to the first container,and mix well. Repeat with the pink one for the second container and the purple for the third. After that,just take your empty cup and with the spoon,take a spatula of the blue mixture and put it in the cup,do the same with the other two colors.You can sprinkle some edible glitter between the layers,and finish it all with some whipped cream on the top but that’s optional.



2.DIY galaxy shoes


Thanks to DIYPROJECTSFORTEENS.COM for this tutorial!


3.DIY galaxy jars

“You are going to need just a few things. First, a jar , somecotton, water, glitter, paint and cotton balls.

Fill 1/3 of the jar with water
2. Add several drops of paint to the water, put the lid on and shake to mix the paint and water
3. Add a bit of glitter
4. Stretch cotton balls and add them to the water until the bottom is filled with cotton, pressing them down into the water with a stick or butter knife

Fill another 1/3 of the jar with water and add several drops of contrasting paint and repeat steps 2-4
Fill the final 1/3 of the jar with water and repeat steps 2-4 “

Great tutorial


And you have your galaxy jars🙂

4.DIY galaxy clothes

Galaxy shorts[be sure to use fabric paint]


You just have to make use of your painting skills and you have your coool galaxy shirt.You can also throw some paint on your other stuff like your backpack as well


5.Galaxy bath bombs





You’ll need

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup citric acid
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil /essential oil
  • food coloring
  • some sprinkles (optional)


Put all of your dry ingredients together in a bowl, that is your baking soda, citric acid and cornstarch. Give it a good stir with a spoon.Add a few drops of essential oil at this point,the mixture will clump.Divide the mixture over several (smaller) bowls. Add a different color of food coloring to each bowl. Start by adding one drop, mix well and then add another. Because the food coloring is water based, again, you don’t want your bath bomb mixture to start fizzing! First the food coloring formed little specks in the mixture. But if you keep stirring it well it will color the whole batch.You can now add some sprinkles but don’t go too crazy with it.You can use any type of mold you like, a star shape for example would work great as well.Fill up both sides of your mold with the mixture. Press it down tightly as you go. Fill up each half until it’s somewhat overflowing.Leave it to cool or for some time in the refrigerator



Some more cool stuff:
