The time has come: finals have arrived! Time to cram everything you learned the past semester for the final exam.
Below are seven tips to get through finals week without honing up too much stress.
1. Jam out to music
The best way to loosen up your mind and body: jam out to some music! Whether it be in your room, at the library, or outside, listening to music always makes studying easier.
2. Drink tea
Sometimes while studying, we forget to drink liquids. Keep yourself hydrated. Drink some mint tea, or chamomile tea, or wintergreen tea - there's so many different tea flavors to choose from. Tea has antioxidants, helps boost the immune system, and can help keep you alert and awake for you to study.
3. Get up and stretch!
Don't just sit down and study. Take a minute to get up and stretch every once in a while. It's bad for the body if you let your body just sit down at a table, hunched over your laptop. It's good to stand up and stretch every hour or so to let your blood circulate.
4. Laugh with friends
Whether it's studying with friends at the library or in your room alone, make sure you take study breaks to converse with friends and laugh with them. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins in the brain. Endorphins are the body's natural feel good chemicals and can give you a time relieved of stress.
