How to Stay Calm During Finals Week!

How to Stay Calm During Finals Week!

Hello my cuties,

It’s that time of the year when everyone is stressed out. Midterm exams are hot on our heels, but there’s only a few weeks left until winter break. One of the most important components to help you do well on your exams is staying calm. That’s a lot easier said than done, but keeping a level head will save you a lot of drama and stress breakouts. Here are some tips:

  1. Make a plan: Don’t just spread out all your textbooks and cry in the middle of them. Break up your studying so that it’s less intimidating. Take it one subject at a time.
  2. Take a lot of breaks: Six-hour study marathons are a terrible idea (coming from a girl who’s tried it!). Try to focus for a couple of hours, and then go do something (work out, make dinner, hang out with a friend) so you don’t go insane.
  3. Sleep: Take a nap or at least try to get some sleep the night before an exam. Those extra hours of studying aren’t worth feeling groggy during your test.
  4. Reward yourself: Do something nice for yourself this week. Paint your nails, take a bath, buy yourself a coffee, give yourself a small incentive to keep working hard!
  5. Socialize: Talking with other people (especially students who feel your pain) will take your mind off your stress and give you a mental break.

Those are my top five tips for today! I hope you find them useful, and good luck studying! 🙂

Thanks for reading!

XO,

Grace
