As spring semester is coming closer to an end, the stress is not slowing down. It's like spring break cannot come fastenough. Assignments after assignments... It won't end. The stress continues to come at full swing. So, what do you do when you have to control your stress? Follow these three easy steps.

1. Take down time.

Yeah, you might have five tests or one that you need to study for, but that does not mean you can't take a small break. Watch an episode of your favorite show, take a hot bubble bath with that stress relief soap, or even read a book. However you relax, do it. Give your brain time to soak in all that important information, and don't try to over load it. Take time for yourself to rest and re-energize.

2. Sleep.

It might be hard obtain the full 8 hours asleep every single night due to the hard study/ school load. But take that nap that you're dying to have. It will help your brain slow down and process the information at hand. Sleeping not only helps your brain process, but it also gives your body the energy to continue trudging along. When in doubt, nap it out.


Here comes my cliché option: breathe. Life can be really stressful, especially when spring break is around the corner and professors are adding on to their assignments. Breathing helps calm your nerves and relax your body. It helps release the tension buildup and might even help anxiety.

When you find what works for you to help reduce the end of the semester stress, go for it. Even if you did fail, take a nap. It's well deserved. Don't worry—summer will be here faster than we think.
