Why Wear It Green?

 

 

Wearing green goes beyond just putting on a color—it’s a symbol of hope, growth, and renewal. When we wear green today, we stand with those battling mental health conditions, promoting empathy and understanding. Moreover, as we navigate our academic and professional lives, let’s not forget the importance of our own mental well-being.

 

The Impact of Exams and Work on Mental Health:

 

As we face exams, deadlines, and the pressures of academic and professional life, it’s vital to acknowledge how these stressors affect our mental well-being. Wear It Green Day prompts us to reflect on our mental health and seek support when necessary. Remember, it’s okay to prioritise your own self-care.

Here are some practical tips to manage exam stress:

 

  • Plan Ahead: Firstly, break down study sessions into manageable tasks and create a study schedule.
  • Practice Self-Care: Additionally, get enough rest, eat nutritious meals, and engage in activities that relax and rejuvenate you.
  • Reach Out: Above all don’t hesitate to talk to friends, family, or teachers about your feelings and concerns. Seeking support is a sign of strength, not weakness.
  • Use Relaxation Techniques: Incorporate deep breathing exercises, meditation, or mindfulness practices into your routine to reduce stress and promote calmness effectively.
  • Stay Positive: Finally, focus on your strengths, celebrate your progress, and maintain a positive mindset. Remember that setbacks are temporary, and you have the resilience to overcome challenges.
