Results Day Anxiety - Top Tips For Self-Care

Feeling anxious on results day is normal. But it is important to prioritise your health to ensure that the stress and worry do not take over. Take a look at our helpful tips on looking after yourself on results day and how to apply to university through UCAS Clearing if you need to.

Too Much Stress Is No Good for Anyone

Stress is both good and bad. Feeling worried and anxious about your results is normal. However, like anything in life, too much of anything is typically no good.

Stress definitely falls into that category. It can manifest into physical symptoms, like chest pain, tense muscles, an upset stomach, headaches, and insomnia, so it is important to keep those stress levels under control.

The trouble is that it can feel impossible when you’re waiting to hear results on what can feel like the most important day of your life so far. Breathe. We’ve got you.

So, How Can You Keep Those Stress Levels Low?

Here are our tips on keeping your stress levels under control:

Prioritise nutrition

Maintaining a balanced diet is important because it keeps those energy levels high and helps to control your mood.

Keep busy

One thing we recommend doing is keeping yourself busy. We know it has been a lot harder to do this throughout lockdown. But by the time results day comes around, we should all be able to go to our favourite cafe or park to do something fun that takes our mind off things.

Get lost in a good book or listen to some music

Keeping your mind active and engaged can help to distract you from your impending results.
