Alternatives to A-Levels
Please note that this ‘Alternatives to A-Levels post will be a long one however, it is a big decision. I shall start this post by saying that I am probably not the best person to give advice on alternatives. Depression tampered with my decisions but I will still stand by them. However, I believe my experience with A-Levels and apprenticeships may have the potential to help you. If you’re struggling to decide, keep reading.
Not everyone wants to stay on at school. It’s okay if you do and it’s okay if you don’t. I know a lot of people who are doing well with their A levels and others that are doing well without.
Usually schools don’t tend to promote the alternatives so it is down to you to do the research yourself.
Mental Health Morning Routine
Oh Mornings, they can be the most difficult times in the day. Especially if you struggle with your mental health. However, we can conqueror mornings and even make them something to look forward to with my mental health morning routine. I’m not going to tell you my morning routine is perfect, I don’t exercise everyday or get up at a good time but I do little things that help make everyday feel a little bit better and help me concentrate on my plans for the day. I’m currently not working due to my depression so my mornings tend to be very relaxed and I also tend to take my time. If you’re working and don’t have time for a relaxed morning routine then I would recommend trying this on a weekend or simplifying it for a working morning.

There are only a couple of products I use everyday to help with depression (Bach’s rescue remedy and lavender oil) but they are the most amazing products ever. I’m talking about little things you can carry around all day in case you get into a panic. These two products are only small and light, they can both probably fit in one pocket so there’s no hassle of routing through a bag.
