What To Do the Night Before Your Exam

What To Do the Night Before Your Exam

Here's a set of guidelines you should take that will help you ace your final tomorrow without studying!


This list is a foolproof list of steps you should take before your final tomorrow to destress and prepare yourself with that A without studying!

1. Get a GOOD night of sleep! If you're used to not getting a lot of sleep, don't get too much. You might feel super groggy the next day. Get enough, though, so you feel rested and ready to go for the test tomorrow!

2. Wake up! This might make you say "duh!" but I know a lot of people who missed the final because they were up late studying and didn't get up in time to take the test. Make sure you set multiple alarms and ask your family to wake you up if you sleep heavily or they don't see you in the kitchen at a certain time.

3. Don't study the night before. As much as you might feel like you need to, cramming might result in you forgetting other information you learned on top of the information you're cramming, both due to stress and the fact that your brain doesn't have time to process and retain the information you think your absorbing due to lack of sleep. Memories are cemented as you sleep, so without giving your brain a chance to do that, your cramming goes down the drain.

4. Eat a good breakfast. Your brain won't have fuel to run off of if you don't! You can also prepare a meal with certain foods that are scientifically proven to help with brain stimulation!

a. oatmeal

b. granola or quinoa

d. whole wheat toast with peanut or almond butter

e. yogurt smoothie, yogurt parfait

d. eggs with veggies or cheese

5. Get your things ready! Last but not least, be prepared. There's nothing worse than rushing to get ready on exam day and already stressing out for something futile. Save your energy for the test! Get everything ready the night before, know the instructions, what you have to bring, wear, etc.

Good luck on your exam! If your exam is tomorrow, don't stress! You've got this!

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
