Finals time has arrived. Are you ready?

Seven Helpful Tips To Get You Through Finals Week

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.

5. Color! Do some art!

Taking a break and coloring or doodling definitely lets your mind take a rest and do something fun!

6. Do some BuzzFeed quizzes

Alright, who doesn't like BuzzFeed quizzes? Make it so that for every 30 minutes or hour you study, you can take two BuzzFeed quizzes. It's a great way to take your mind off of studying and do something that doesn't require brain power.

7. Treat yo' self

After a looooong day of studying, take yourself out for dessert! You deserve it!

If you do one or more of these suggestions, I guarantee you're going to ace all your finals!
