Can you believe that it's already almost midterms week? I know that I always need some tips and guidance when it comes to studying for midterms. Even if I've heard it all before, it doesn't hurt to get a reminder and maybe get some new tips for getting through the stressful week ahead.

Change up your study spaces

I can never sit in one place and study for hours on end. It's always helpful to get a change in location to help refocus yourself and keep yourself motivated.

Call your parents

A good talk with my mom always helps to calm me down. It also gives me motivation to get through the week because then I'll be able to go home over spring break and see my family.

Nap

I'm not saying that you should sleep all the time, but you definitely can't focus well if you're sleep deprived. A solid nap can help you regain some energy and focus.

Eat a lot

We all know how hard it is to focus when you're hungry. But also some of your favorite foods, can just make you feel better when you're stressed and upset. You still want to try to eat healthy though so you can have enough energy to make it through those long hours of studying.

Find a good study playlist

I'm the type of person that has to listen to music when I'm studying, but it's important to have the right playlist or else I'll get distracted. Find a playlist that gets you motivated, but also helps you to enjoy yourself.

Exercise

No matter how hard it is to find the motivation to go exercise, I know I always feel better once I do. It's a great way to get rid of some stress and to just feel better overall.

Get off campus

Whether it's to go get a coffee or maybe something to eat, try to get away from campus. It can be a little rough being stuck it the same place for so long, so give yourself a break for a bit.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
