5 Tips To Help With Your Stress During Finals Week

1. Take deep breathes

An important thing to do when you start to feel overwhelmed is to just stop for a moment and take a deep breathe. Count to 10 and just take a quick, silent, calm moment for yourself. This is more important than you think. This honestly can real help when you are feeling overwhelmed and that something is just too much.

2. Take breaks

Yes, I know the work load is insane during finals week and your freaking out over it all, plus all the final exams you are studying for. But what can really help is taking breaks. If you take a 30 minute break in between subjects or assignments, it will help feel less over whelmed and will make you feel less drained and run down. It will also help you finish the work and procrastinate less because you are getting that break to breathe and take a rest from it all.

3. Stay organized

If you have a plan of action and you do not leave everything for the last moment, then it will be easier and less stressful. This will all get done and you will not be pulling all-nighters trying to study and get things done because you procrastinated way too much.

4. Do not cut out the world

Just because it is finals week and you have a lot to do does not mean you can't go out and do something to take your mind off of things. Going out just for an hour or so can really help you relax and make things easier for when it is time to get back to the work and studying.

5. Study with friends

Another thing that can really help is doing the work or studying with friends. This can make things easier because you have people to bounce off ideas and to review things with. Sometimes it even helps just knowing others are going through the same things you are, and that alone helps de-stress.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?
