3 Ways to De-Stress During Finals

Finals are rapidly approaching and while you may want to spend all your time studying, sometimes you need to take time away from your work. Spending all your time reading words over and over again is pointless if you are too stressed out to register them. So, instead try taking mini breaks during your study sessions to de-stress. Here are some ways I recommend to get back into the right mindset:

1. Meditation

May sound lame or cliche, but breathing exercises can make a world of a difference. You can either create your own method, download an app, watch a guided YouTube video or search online to find the best meditation for you. It may not work for everyone, but you will be surprised in how well it can help. All you need is a quiet space and somewhere comfortable to sit. Plus, ask some friends to join so you all can de-stress together.

2. Drink Some Tea


This is my personal favorite. I love tea and there are so many different kinds. This article lays out the different kinds of tea that are best for stress relief. I really like some peppermint or lavender tea when I want to relax. I also make sure that I they are caffeine free. My additives of choice are either honey or lemon depending on the type of tea. Sometimes just plain hot tea is the best kind for stress.

3. Venting With Friends

This seems straight forward but sometimes having a venting session with friends can be the best way to de-stress. All you have to do it set a time with friends, gather at a common area location, and vent for a good ten to twenty minutes. After, take a few deep breath together and give everyone positive affirmations. Then go and ace your finals.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will.
