Here are some tips to prevent mental exhaustion:

1. Go to bed 30 minutes before you want to fall asleep

It’s simple math – if you go to bed at midnight and need to get up at 6:00 a.m., you will only get six hours of sleep. However, this number could be even less if it takes you thirty minutes or so to settle into a physical and mental resting state. If you need to wake up at 6:00 a.m., count backward by about eight and a half hours to get to your ideal bedtime. If you went to bed at 9:30 p.m., it is likely you would be able to fall asleep by 10:00 p.m., and then you will have slept for a full eight hours by the time your alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m. Even though 9:30 may sound too early for bedtime, just try it. It could make you feel much more alert the next day.

2. Plan ahead

It is easy to blame forgotten essay help and overdue library books on the fact that you simply do not recall ever having received a due date. However, this excuse should really only be used in honest scenarios, or else you will fall behind quickly and drastically. By planning ahead for studying, writing papers, and reading, you can give yourself enough time to complete your work earlier than the night before a test or assignment due date. If you complete the assignments according to your plan, you should have a more consistent time for leisure and rest activities. Begin by buying a day planner. Plugin the dates when you know assignments are due on the day that you receive your class syllabus. Then work backward from there to mark your calendar when you think you should begin the assignment. Aim to have your final product finished a few days before the due date to account for any last-minute mistakes or mishaps that could arise.

3. Know when to say no

Be sure to avoid other distractions that could derail your carefully laid plans. If a fun party, or a fancy dinner out, or a last-minute date comes up, just know when to say that you are too busy to socialize. If the inviter truly cares about you and your goals, he or she will understand that you have other priorities. If possible, ask to reschedule or say you hope you can come to his or her next party or dinner. If you do say yes to every invite or distraction that comes along, you could wind up becoming both mentally and physically exhausted.

Priorities change, and classes start and finish, but you consistently need your mental health to be in a good state. By getting ample sleep, planning ahead, and knowing when to say “no,” you can maintain your mental health and prevent mental exhaustion.
