With finals upon us, life can get hectic and stressful. Some classes may require more time to study than others due to more content or maybe even the dreaded cumulative finals. Taking the time to go through some of these steps can help you stay sane this semester. Here are some tips to cope with the remainder of your semester.
1) Organize Everything
Throughout the semester you've had your papers scattered everywhere or maybe your notes aren't as clean as they should be.
Take the time to organize your notes so you can study easier.
2) Carve out Time
With such a hectic time, you need to plan out how your time is being spent. Between work, school, and a social life, finals time is the time when things can become the most stressful. Organizing not only your notes but your time will help you in the long run.
3) Get some rest
A crucial component of any smart student is a full night's rest. Make sure you're getting the amount of sleep you need so you can have the energy to do well.
4) Make Your Own Study Guide
Sometimes professors won't give you a review sheet and even if you did get one, it's not that great to look at for a reference. Go through your notes and make your own study guide to help you all the way up to the day of the final.
5) Me Time
Studying for back to back finals can be a toll on you. Make sure you take some time to take care of yourself. Whether it's a quick bite to eat, a nice cup of coffee, or meditation, your body will thank you.
