keep calm and listen music

Tips for studying when sick

We all know how hard it can be when flu season comes around and you really need to study, but you just can’t shake off the illness that you’ve caught. 

I’m currently studying for my final exams and have come down with the worst virus I’ve had in years, so I’m going to share with you my tips on how I still maintain a study routine even when I’m feeling rotten. I hope this helps some of you!

1. Maintain regular study breaks - When you’re studying for a big test and you’re in the groove of things it can be hard to want to take time out of your already busy schedule for regular breaks, but when you’re sick this is absolutely essential. Try to take more frequent breaks than you usually do so that you don’t overwork your already struggling body. In my breaks I like to keep up my fluids and listen to some calming music to prevent my brain from feeling too fuzzy.

2. Drink heaps of fluids - While you should already do this when studying so as to keep your brain functioning, when you’re sick you need even more fluids than usual. I like to keep a huge bottle of water with me at all times as well as a cup of tea, drinking from these super regularly so as to maintain my focus and try to overcome my sickness.

3. Get lots of sleep - While it can be tempting to pull an all-nighter to cram in as much study as possible, I don’t recommend doing this when you’re sick. Your body is already exhausted and needs as much sleep as it can get! I recommend having early nights to try to get back in good health as quick as possible.

4. Study somewhere comfortable - While I usually opt for sitting at my desk to study, when I’m sick I migrate to the couch. This is to make sure I’m as comfortable as possible so that I can try to get some studying done. There’s nothing worse then being uncomfortable when you’re ill, and I actually find that it prevents me from working when I’m feeling under the weather. Make sure you sit upright when you’re on the couch so you don’t fall asleep, but cover yourself with a blanket to stay warm and cozy so that you get some work done!

5. Try not to stress - I know this is easier said than done, but stress can weaken your immune system even further. Email your teachers if you have to ask for extensions, or ask your friends for extra support when you’re not feeling 100%. Whatever it takes to make you feel less stressed, do it - trust me, you will thank yourself in the long run. 

The Signs in School

Aries: either really jittery or talking to friends, still passing the class

Taurus: helping out other kids (or getting help from other kids) or sleeping

Gemini: either roasting annoying kids or is one of the annoying kids

Cancer: listening to music and keeping a calm exterior but dying inside

Leo: either secretly on their phone, checking grades, never really doing work

Virgo: paying attention but sort of getting lost because they’re thinking about other things

Libra: switching in between talking to people but not getting caught and working

Scorpio: takes like 4 bathroom breaks just to get out of class

Sagittarius: working but also doing a side project to distract themselves from the boredom

Capricorn: working hard but gets bored so takes one or two bathroom breaks with Scorpio

Aquarius: either the class clown, not paying attention at all, or working but not quite understanding what they’re working on

Pisces: working as fast and hard as they can so they can have free time to draw or write stories


Your guardian angels are giving you a comforting and protective hug, to help you with your extra-sensitivity to energy.

Today’s energy has a sweet flow of lightness which is lifting previous blocks, with that familiar whoosh! of a drain pipe being unclogged. Today, projects which were previously stalled, will move forward again.

And yet your sensitivity is already feeling the pre-shadow effects of the full moon (August 17) and mercury retrograde (August 30).

For example, tempers and irritability may flare today, unless you and others recognize that miscommunication isn’t personal, but is from the energy.

Choose your words carefully, and don’t automatically take offense to what someone says. Ask them for clarification, and you’ll probably find that what they meant to say came out wrong.

You can enjoy an amazingly enjoyable day by keeping a loving focus and refusing to engage in drama. Like the angel on this card, spending time in nature or listening to gentle music can keep you calm and centered in the midst of turbulent energy.

The angels also show me that many people will feel insecure as they blame themselves for this awkward energy. Insecurity makes some people act defensively, so heads up for yourself: “There’s nothing to feel insecure about. The energy is awkward, not you.”

Have compassion upon other people who feel insecure. Please send prayers to our planet, which is also being affected by the wobbly energy.

Be extra-gentle with yourself, take it easy today, and give any negativity to God for healing, shifting, and uplifting. We are praying for everyone’s health, protection, abundance, and love.
