Take a break from finals with these fun tips.
Start a New Series on Netflix. One of the most relaxing things to do is come back to your dorm room after a long day of studying, pile up in bed, and turn on your favorite show. Some of my favorites are “Gilmore Girls”, “Once Upon A Time”, and “Friends”.
Grab a Cup of Coffee. Running down the street to our local Dunkin’ or Starbucks can really help you relax. Also, a caffeine boost is always appreciated.
Play with Puppies. Here in Rome, Georgia, there is this magical place called Petland that actually lets you play with puppies. Embrace the puppy kisses.
Sleep. Sometimes a nap is all you need to help you regain your focus. Lay down and refresh, even if it is only for a few minutes.
Take a Hike. One of my favorite things to do take a break is hiking. A mindless walk through pretty leaves and the brisk air might do you some good.
Read Something. Reading may be the last thing you want to do especially after doing that while studying. But if you read something that doesn’t take much effort, it may help you regain your thoughts.
Scroll through Social Media. This can be dangerous if you’re not careful. Don’t let this consume your time. However, checking out the fun things your friends who are done with finals are doing.
Clean. I know what you’re thinking, “What the heck is she thinking?” Cleaning can actually help you relieve stress. Nothing says letting go of stress like scrubbing your bathroom floor until it’s spotless.
Hang with Friends. Surrounding yourself with positive and supportive people is one of the best stress relievers. One of God’s greatest gifts is friendship, and we should definitely take advantage of that.
