However, in the midst of all the coffee fueled, sleep-deprived crazy mess going on around your final exams it is important to stay calm and more importantly, together at all times. Personally, I tend to psych myself out of things and the dread is what leads me to doing poorly. These are the five things I like to do the most to help beat the stress of finals-
2.) Take a shower - Sounds a little silly, right? But there is just something about a nice long shower where you just sit there and absorb the heat. Put a hair mask / facial mask on, sit down and just relax for 30 minutes. You'll get out feeling so much more refreshed and ready to take on your next assignment.
3.) Binge-watch your favorite television show (no more than 2, 3 hours top!) - Netflix is probably the worst thing ever introduced to college students, it makes me so unproductive! But sometimes you just need to not think and indulge in your favorite guilty pleasure. Mad Men is one of my all time favorites!
4.) Catch up on your reading - Get lost in a book for an hour or so, I'm currently reading The Wolf of Wall Street!
5.) Do 15 to 30 minutes of yoga - Roll out your yoga mat and find your inner peace. Yoga for me is time to be alone with my thoughts while getting more comfortable and confident in my own skin. Sun Salutations are great when you only have five or ten minutes, but if you can spare twenty to thirty I highly recommend looking up a sequence on Pinterest and getting in tune with yourself. Sounds crazy but it works!
What are y'all's favorite ways to de-stress during finals? Let me know!
Good luck and may the curve be ever in your favor!
