It’s stress awareness week. As we wind down into the summer months, stress levels can be high. As schools have just started a new term, stress can be something very difficult to deal with. As well as exams just around the corner, it’s important to keep on top of stress and the effects it may have. In this blog post, we’re focusing on our top tips for reducing stress in schools. Understanding stress stress awareness week Understanding stress can be very beneficial to dealing with stress. Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When you feel threatened, your nervous system responds by releasing a flood of stress hormones, including adrenaline, which rouse the body for emergency action. Your heart pounds faster, muscles tighten, blood pressure rises, breath quickens, and your senses become sharper. These physical changes increase your strength and stamina, speed your reaction time, and enhance your focus. Organise your working environment School and college can be stressful, but there are simple things you can do to manage and reduce your stress. Creating a positive working environment can help a lot. Whether you’re a teacher or a student, having a good working environment can be key to reducing stress levels. Create a regular schedule; know what you will be doing on each day and when you will be doing it. Having a positive working space can help you plan ahead. It can even be simple things like packing your bag the night before and knowing what you’re wearing in the morning can really help to reduce stress. Set aside time in your day to do assignments and other miscellaneous tasks. Once you have things planned, your stress levels will reduce dramatically. It’s also important to clear out any clutter from your revision space, desk or anywhere where you might be planning on doing any work. Just sitting in a cluttered room can create stress. Try to keep a tidy work space.

Easter is almost over and it’s looking like it’s time to go back to school. In this blog post, catch up with Anomaly’s top tips for teachers, students and parents on how to deal with going back to school. It’s definitely difficult but it can be done! We did do a write up back in September, but we thought it was time for a quick recap on how to battle the last couple of months before the big summer break. Organise before it’s too late back to school One of the biggest tips we can give at Anomaly is to always organise before it’s too late. Getting ready for bed on the Sunday night before you’re back to school and remembering something that you’ve forgotten is one of the worst feelings in the world. Make sure you’re organised well ahead of schedule to avoid any last minute upset just before you go back. For students, sit down and think if there’s anything you may have forgotten, for example any last minute homework you need to do. Always plan ahead Much similar to organising yourself, but planning ahead will be essential for these next couple of weeks, especially for students in their later years of school. If you’re in year 11 or year 6 you will have important exams coming up within the next couple of weeks, make sure you’re ready by planning your workload to get the best possible marks this summer. For teachers and parents, you will already know that this will be an incredibly stressful time for pupils and it’s important to be supportive and make sure you are planning ahead yourself to help them tackle these stressful months. For students, make sure you are always coming to lessons with the right equipment. We have content which can help with remembering to always bring a pen among other things to class. Prepare your Anomaly equipment Heading back to school will be a stressful time, using Anomaly equipment could be the last thing on your mind. With that said it’s important to plan ahead for the upcoming term. As mentioned earlier in this post, summer exams are just around the corner. Using Anomaly screens you will be able to post key information and important dates relevant to these upcoming exams. You may also want to display some content on your screens which may help with revision. With Anomaly content manager, we make it easy to look through content to see what will help improve your school.
