Surviving Finals Week

Finals week is almost here and I thought I’d post some tips on how to overcome the stress that most students go through during this hectic week!

  1. Planning is essential

    It is very important to prioritize your time and plan your study schedule. I know it’s difficult for a lot of people to actually stick to a schedule, but you can motivate yourself in many ways. One such way is to reward yourself (treat yourself to chocolate maybe?) whenever you achieve a goal.

  2. Take small breaks

    being a keyword here, haha. It’s not uncommon for us to take a small break and then extend that break for hours. Set a reminder to prevent you from extending your break.

  3. Drink enough waterΒ

    I cannot stress how important it is to stay hydrated whether studying for finals or not. When you study, your brain absorbs a lot of water and if you don’t drink enough water, you can get severe headaches and even feel sleepy.

  4. Avoid social media

    Social media has taken over our lives and it’s natural for us to keep checking our phones every now and then. To avoid this, log out of all your social media accounts so that you are not tempted to use your phone.

  5. Get enough sleep

    Sleep is for the weak! No, not really. It has been scientifically proven that if you don’t sleep enough, you tend to forget things and your productivity levels decrease tremendously. Hence, pulling all-nighters isn’t such a good idea.

  6. Eat brain foods

    Having sweet treats is not a crime, but try to balance it out by snacking on healthy foods.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Good luck! πŸ˜€
