6 Effective ways to de-stress and relax as a student

Prioritise some time for yourself each day, at least 1 hour dedicated to you and away from social media.


This will make you feel better about yourself and will therefore improve other areas of your life including your studies.


Remember, that taking care of yourself and engaging in activities which you love is as important as studying and being productive.



Exercise – move your beautiful body


Sign up for weekly workout classes, yoga, take up a sport or go on a hike.

Choose something you genuinely enjoy.

This will make it easier to be consistent, plus it improves your overall well-being, especially your mental health!


Watch the Sunset


Pick your favourite spot around the Maltese Islands (e.g., Għajn Tuffieħa, Fomm Ir-Riħ, Popeye Village at Anchor Bay Mellieha) to watch a beautiful sunset.

Spend some time there with yourself or a friend, go for a walk and connect with mother nature.

Cook a nourishing meal

Cook your favourite hearty meal, try out a new nutritious sweet or savoury recipe.

Listen to some music or to a podcast about topics you find interesting e.g., ‘The Diary of a CEO with Steven Barrett’ or ‘On Purpose with Jay Shetty’.


Go for a coffee with a friend


Pick a cute café around Malta such as JAVA or Fontanella Tea Garden, spend some quality time with a dear friend and chat away.

Have a relaxing bath


As part of your evening routine, take a warm bath, add magnesium salts, some lavender oil, moisturise and just pamper yourself… you deserve it!


Switch it Up


Take 15 minutes of your day to journal. Create a calm atmosphere, for instance, diffuse some essential oils, sip on herbal tea, listen to instrumental music.

If you have no idea where to start, just write about different areas of your life such as wellbeing, what makes you feel peaceful, excited, sad, joyful etc...

Express gratitude, for your loved ones, for life’s simple pleasures. Remember this is a great time to connect with YOU!

These are some ways to help you de-stress and to give yourself that extra bit of love. When life gets overwhelming, and studies become challenging, remember why you decided to start this educational journey in the first place.

Ask for help whenever you need it...

Remember, that asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness but rather a strength, as it requires a certain amount of courage and vulnerability.
