FINALS? ALREADY? WHAT?!? This semester has gone by so fast, and finals are already next week. Where has the time gone? No one really wants to admit that finals are coming, but it's vital to begin preparing in order to do well and end the year with a bang. Here are a few tips to minimize stress in the upcoming weeks:

1. Exercise.

Exercise releases the happy chemical, serotonin, from the brain.

2. Color.

Who doesn't love a little arts and crafts? I just ordered a coloring book from Amazon, and I love it.

3. Do some yoga and meditation.

Grab a mat and relieve some stress with some yoga. This can be done anywhere, but preferably with a view.

4. Make a calendar.

Fill the your calendar with appointments, deadlines, due dates, etc.

5. Sleep.

Sleeping actually helps retain the information. You wouldn't want all of that studying to be for nothing.

6. Dance it out.

Have a dance party like Meredith Grey and Christina Yang. Let yourself smile and have some fun with your favorite songs.

7. Play with a pet or animal.

Give some attention to your furry friend.

8. Have a positive attitude.

Complain less and just accept that you have work to do and get it done. You will get through it. Everything will be okay. Keep telling yourself that you are doing amazing.

9. Go outside.

Take a break and go outside. The fresh air and vitamin D is good for you. Sometimes a change in scenery is just what you may need to refocus and put your mind at ease.

10. Let yourself cry.

Having a good cry and letting it all out can help you relieve your frustration. Moving forward, you will be less angry and be able to focus better. Thus, this will better your studies.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.

Don't Make This Pandemic Political, Just Wear Your Damn Mask

A virus doesn't discriminate when infecting you.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.
