How to cope with boredom!

So as you know it's half term WOOO! Well some people won't be feeling like this, as they will be bored all holiday. And that is the reason for my post today!
I never get bored during the holidays as I always have lots of things to do, I hope this post helps!

- GO SHOPPING!!!!! (This is my fave thing today, I do loads of it!)
Grab a Starbucks! (Go out for a coffee date with your friends!)
- Have a lie in! (This will make the day go quicker, and there is less time to do things!)
Go ice skating, tobogganing, etc!
- Go swimming! (It's always really funny with friends!)
- Get a bus into town with your friends!
- Go to the cinema!
- Go to a theme park if you leave near one (Drayton manor alton towers)
- Read a book! (The holiday is a good time to get into a book!)
- Listen to music for a bit!
- Sunbathe outside if the weathers good!
- Have a movie and pyjama day!
- Have sleepovers with friends (you could get a tent and sleep in your back garden!)
- Get a job, such as a paper round! (It will keep you busy)
- Do homework, get it out of the way, and do revision!
- Go to your local gym, it may even have an outside pool!
- Write a diary!
- Do some baking & cooking!
- Go fruit picking
- Plant some flowers in your garden
- Go to the beach (and go at night or when the sun is setting!)
- Feed ducks at a pond and go on a picnic
- Go for a walk / bike ride, or make a nature walk!

Revision & homework tips!

Hello! So this is a different kind of blog post today, due to the fact lots of people are going through exams at the moment. So I thought that maybe this would help you!

Revision tips:

1. Spread your revision out over a number of days. Don't try and do it all fast. 

2. Try and do some last minute revision the night before, or in the morning just to make sure it stays in your head. 

3. Make sure you have some fresh water to get you through, so your not dehydrated. 

4. When you have done around 30 minutes go and get a snack to keep you going. 

5. Make your notes look pretty- use colours! Some people may find this a waste of time, but personally for me it makes it easier to revise!

6. Use revision books, they are layed out easier, and you know that the infomation is 100% correct. 

7. Take short breaks ever hour. 

8. Use post it notes! Stick them around the house, and write formulas on them! Eg, for maths you could write the quadratic formula on one, and stick it on the fridge!

9. Try reading difficult bits in a funny accent, it will make it easier to remember!

10. Do lots of practice exam papers!

11. Turn ALL of your devices off!! Such as your ipad, and phone, as these always get me distracted!

12. Turn the tv off, so it doesn't distract you, or you could put the radio or music channel on, if you find it easier to listen to something whilst working!

Homework tips!

1. Get it done ASAP, don't just wait until the night before. 

2. Write down all homework in your planner. 

All of the above tips also work for homework!

If your doing exams,good luck and I hope this blog post has helped!
