How to stay less stress during finals week

Finals week is right around the corner and it’s a stressful time for everyone, especially during these times. Here’s some tips on having a less stressful time during finals week.

  1. TAKE STUDY BREAKS: Don’t try to cram all the information you need to know all at once. It is important to give yourself a break to give your brain time to comprehend what you just read. If you try to cram everything in at once, nothing is going to stick.
  2. GET YOUR REST: Sleep is super important. Being tired will make it harder to concentrate, multitask and remember information
  3. DON’T DRINK TOO MUCH CAFFEINE: Drinking too much coffee can cause anxiety to rise and make it harder to focus while studying and taking your finals. A little is okay to get yourself moving, but don’t drink too much.
  4. REWARD YOURSELF: Whether it’s self care, getting your favorite food or watching an episode of your favorite show, remember to reward yourself, you’re working hard and deserve to treat yourself.
  5. DON’T PUT TOO MUCH PRESSURE ON YOURSELF: Finals are a stressful time, and it is important to do well, but don’t put too much pressure on yourself. If you start feeling overwhelmed and stressed out, just remember this is only a few days or a week of your life. It isn’t the most important thing you’ll do in your entire life. It will pass and you will get through this!

On days where I feel like all I’ve done for the day is sitting at a desk working, when it’s time for lunch I walk to where I want to get food instead of driving. Instead of your 30-minute study break being spent on your phone, go for a walk around the block. It really is easy to incorporate. You just have to make time in your schedule to give your body some love. I always try to do some form of activity for at least 30-minutes a day. Even on my most busy schedules.

It important to treat you body with love, because when you give love to your body it will love you right back.
