Dead week is a nightmare, here's some things to get you through it!

5 Things You Absolutely NEED To Prepare For Dead Week

In preparation for college dead week coming up and students cramming for finals, there are essential items you must need. This week is every college student's nightmare, and possibly may be worse than finals themselves. Whether you're in the library, at your house, or in a classroom, these 10 essential items will get you through the day … or night!



Okay, this is an obvious one. Coffee is an essential part of any college student's diet, but during dead week, go right to the venti or large coffee. The small ones won't do it, and you will just spend more money buying two!



So, this one may be a little weird, but a blanket is a necessity.

I don't care if I'm in the library or on my couch, having a blanket will make you feel safe and sound when you're on the verge of tears after realizing all of the information you did not know! It will also keep you warm, and it's super simple to take on and off. You may think that people are staring at you, but I promise they are just jealous!



IMPORTANT! When studying late at night and fighting both a headache and sleep, you will want Advil, not Tylenol. Advil won't make you sleepy but will rid of all the aches and pains from sitting in the same chair with your head down studying for all those hours.

Baseball cap


Every now and then, you will want to take a five-minute snooze or rest your eyes. You know that if you leave wherever you are and close your books that you will not go back, so you have to stay where you are. In that case, bring a baseball cap and put your head down a little. It will allow you to close your eyes without anyone noticing. For the most part.

Snacks, snacks, snacks!


Bring snacks that you will enjoy! My best advice is to bring snacks and use them as your reward. After getting through a chapter or finishing a page of your paper, reward yourself with a nice sweet snack for a little bit of energy. But, don't use them as a meal supplement. You will be unhappy and you will get tired!

No matter what stigmas you held about therapy before this year, I'm sure 2020 has affirmed that we could ALL use a nice long therapy session. Between wildfires that took over an entire continent, a global health crisis, and what's sure to be one giant circus of an election in the United States, we need help and we need it now.

The fact of the matter is, therapy has been a helpful, valid resource long before the world decided to become one giant dumpster fire. Having a safe space to discuss what's going on in your life, worries you have, and struggles you're facing has become a very normal thing for individuals' mental health.
