As finals are wrapping up, you’re probably exhausted and are looking forward to a break from school. As you go home and decompress, here are things to help you recover from the stress.
1. Get enough sleep.
sleep, relax, and allow your body to recover from how hard you’ve been working it.
2. Eat wholesome foods.
3. Talk it out.
Physical health aside, caring for your mental health is also important. Some people process best by internalizing, and that’s great. But make sure and find a way to vocalize all your post-semester emotions. Depending on how full your semester was, you’ll probably have a lot of emotional build-up. Getting it out in a quick and healthy manner is important.
4. Keep in touch with friends!
Break is a little over a month long, and this is a long time to be away from your friends. They’ve gone through the tough spots by your side, and know exactly what you’re going through. Additionally, not speaking at all over break will make these more awkward come next semester. Keep in contact!
