It’s not just a day off.
It’s an opportunity to tell yourself that you’re doing the right thing by having a day off.
It’s a time to tell yourself that you need to rest too.
It’s hopefully space to really get some rest and relaxation, in a period when there may have been fewer opportunities to do so.
Rest is an important part of life, never mind viva preparation – but if you are preparing, do take some time just to pause. Take breaks. Let your mind relax a little. Take some time to rest and help yourself be ready.
