6 Things To Remember During Finals That Will Help You Finish Strong

Just breathe - it'll all be okay.

6 Things To Remember During Finals That Will Help You Finish Strong

Finals are here, and personally, I am very stressed. For those who are also struggling, I have compiled a list of what I always need to remind myself during this stressful week. I really hope this helps, and good luck with finals!

1. Breathe.


Always remember to breathe. Take each day one at a time, you will get through it all. You will survive. Maybe go to a yoga class, it will not only help you work on your breathing but it will be a nice break from sitting around studying for hours on end.

2. Everything will be okay.


Did you pass? Great! Did you fail? That's okay, too. No matter the outcome of these grades, it will all be okay. In the end, everything will work out how it's supposed to. Once you hit submit or hand in your answer sheet, there's nothing else you can do.

3. These tests don't define you.


Finals are just a small bump in the road throughout your time at college. These couple tests won't define your outcome or whether you get a career or not. The outcome of these, don't determine your future.

4. Don't isolate yourself.


Don't lock yourself in your room studying every second of the day. Yes, studying is important however so are you. You could take a study break and go relax with your friends. Sometimes all you need is a friend to get through the stress. You can't expect to do this all alone.

5. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.


If you pile too much on your plate, you will crumble. Don't pressure yourself into getting straight A's, if it doesn't work out that's okay.

6. Do your best.


All anyone can ask of you is to do your best. Maybe you fail, but did you do your best? Was there anything more you could've done? If not, then you succeeded.
