The birds are chirping. The sun is out, and students are out having fun. It's almost the end of the year. Although finals are approaching for some, and already here for others, this is an exciting time for most of us. School is almost out, and our break is finally here. I will be staying on campus this summer, but most people go home, and because of this, it is time for most people to spend a lot of time with their families. Spending time with family can be stressful as well as entertaining and eventful. Here are five things to help you get through finals and finally have the summertime that you deserve!
1. Make sure you use your time wisely to study!
Don't wait until the last minute. Really, this is a horrible idea. Start studying at least a few days ahead of time especially if you have multiple exams on the same day.
2. Drink caffeine!
Trust me, you'll need it. Even though you'll be using your time wisely, you might need a few extra hours of study time to be able to do your best.
3. Get some sleep.
You won't be of any good use for studying, having fun, or taking finals if you aren't well-rested. It has been proven for years that having enough sleep helps people during test-taking. So put down those notes for a few hours and take a much needed nap.
4. As much as it may seem like you're supposed to spend all of your time studying during finals week, it's actually good for you to take a break.
Do something fun, once in a while. Get out of your room, put down your textbooks, and forget about your stresses for a little bit.
5. Remember that the end is near!
It will all be over soon, and then you have the whole summer to decompress and not think about school at all! You can do this. I have faith in you!
