All you quarter-system college students out there, I feel you. Haven't started studying, yet homework is piling up, so much yet so little time. Taking a bit of that time away might seem counterproductive, but stress relievers can be as important as sleep in our lives. After all, without either of them we'd get burnt out mentally and physically. There's yoga, music, exercise, all the typical stress relievers, but here are 7 artsy ones that'll not only keep you alive this Dead Week, but also get you ready for this Christmas:
