Stressed for Finals?!

Stressed over finals? Well trust me, you are not alone. Students like you and I are probably working full time jobs, trying to maintain a personal life, and trying to keep up with college can get extremely overwhelming. In the middle of this chaos, look at the big picture of it all. Will you look back ten years from now and think, “Wow, I really worked hard for my dream and achieved it”, or will you be looking back with regrets and what if’s over something you could’ve accomplished, if you gave your all?
We have to remember that although we have obstacles in life, it is all worth going through at the end. We are humans and we learn from our mistakes as we go! If these two final weeks of the semester are really getting to you, I know the last thing you want is to pick up a book and read for the sake of your imagination to run. But try to dedicate at least an hour or two for yourself. Get away from the studies, and actually try to focus on yourself. Stressing over something or not having a break between studies can really affect not only your grade in a class, but also affect you mentally. Here are a few tips that you might want to consider to relax before these finals:
INNER PEACE
• Meditate for a few minutes before you go to sleep or when you wake up. Whatever free time you have, every bit counts!
• Remember to breathe deeply and count to ten if you really need some patience.
NEW ENVIRONMENT
• Find the sun and go outside for a few minutes, enjoy the weather!
• Organize anything that is not, cleaning your room is scientifically proven to actually help a lot of people feel less stressed and cluttered.
EXERCISE
• If you are not the type to exercise, walking your dog outside for ten minutes can really help you.
• Stretch out when you wake up, or before you head to bed. This can relief stress and tension from your body.
SUPPORT/ FAMILY AND FRIENDS
• What is better than having your favorite people around?
• Go out to lunch/dinner with friends one day.
• AND LAUGH! It’s one of the most amazing things that money can’t buy! AND IT’S FREE!
