I am new to scholars and got a little overwhelmed while browsing through the study vault, I don’t know what to focus on!
I am a 20-year-old girl, and finished my last exam of the first year of engineering two days ago. Because of Covid I lost my summer job, and suddenly I don’t know what to do with my time. A year ago I sort of hit a wall beacuse of the constant stress I was putting on myself (to be best at school, best girlfriend, look faboulus, exercise, party, be a good friend etc.). It helped moving away from my home town for college, and after a summer-vacation of only relaxation, I was ready to start my first year of college. Even though I have had the best time, the studies were really hard. I was also trying my best to get to know new people and this quickly resulted into a hectic schedual filled with studies 10-12 hours a day, with social-gatherings/parties in the evening. When the universities shut down because of Covid, I got sent home and experienced some of the same feelings that I had a year ago. The tiniest amount of problems would send a overwhelming wave of stress through my body. The feeling of not being good enough. After my last exam was finished, these feelings really came to surfase, since I couldn’t distract them anymore.
After giving you a lot of background info, my question is this;
Where in the study wault do you think I should start? I need to regain energy, not to stress about the tiniest things. Be more calm and not try to control the future.
Thank you in advance, and sorry for my english (I am from Europe) 🙂
Hope you have a nice day!
