Midterms - it seems like they're never going to end! While balancing schoolwork and studying for all of those tests, students can really feel under pressure. Though the stress can be a lot to handle, it's important to take time each day to relax and unwind. Here are some of the best ways to de-stress from the stress of midterms!

Spend time outside

This isn't the case for everyone at college (especially those back east), but if it's nice weather out, soak in the sunshine! Go sit out by the pool or take a walk around campus. Getting some fresh air can help boost your immune system and energize your mind.


Take a nap

Napping isn't just for kids or for when you're sick! Catching some z's can alieviate your mood and increase your alertness - two things you really need in order to get some good studying done!


Listen to music

Everyone likes music! You can even listen to some while you nap. How bow dat. Music has the power to make you happier and allows you to relax!


Take a shower/bath

Letting the warm water beat on your back feels amazing. The hot water can actually relieve tension and soothe tense muscles. And also those things called bath bombs are pretty fun too - their lavender or mint scents can help zen you out!

Attend an activity on campus

Events/activities happen on campus pretty much every day, and there's bound to be something you'll be interested in. So take some time out of your schedule to enjoy what your school has to offer. Whether it be a free food or a speaker on campus, you'll be glad you went!
