Stress Management Workshops

Understanding study fatigue

Everyone responds to ongoing stress differently. For some the ongoing long-term nature of study can takes its toll, negatively impacting motivation. This can happen over a term, the year or, alternatively, after several years of having to stay focused on study.

Are you are being negatively impacted by: fatigue, susceptible to new/returning health issues, increasing difficulty retaining focus or remembering things, feeling lethargic about study (but always thinking about it), continually trying to talk up the need to study yet being easily distracted!

Attend this workshop to identify and develop ways to manage your study fatigue: http://www.lps.canterbury.ac.nz/lsc/lsc-course-LSIP.php

  • understand early signs of study fatigue
  • retain your remaining resilience
  • respond to low motivation/procrastination
  • study strategically and succeed
