My study skills and organization have improved immensely since starting this course. Beforehand I really didn’t have a structured study routine and since starting I’ve found that my timetable organization and certain study skills have improved a lot. I feel more prepared and relaxed about my study now.

I found the mindfulness and breathing helpful because it was a new way of relaxation that I hadn’t explored before. I ended up really enjoying it and I learnt how to take time from everything and just relax. I found after practising my breathing that I felt more relaxed and less stressed and I feel like it’s a new method of de-stressing that has helped me calm down a lot. I hope to carry it with me through life.

I really recommend doing this course as I enjoyed myself and learnt and improved a lot in relation to my study skills and mindfulness.
