Thoughts on Finals Week

Happy finals week, everybody!

Even though this can be quite a busy time, I hope that you are all doing as well as you can! As busy as I am, I’m trying to be as calm and productive as possible. Beyond the obvious need to study as hard as possible (as always) and give yourself as much time as your schedule allows, it is necessary to stay as healthy and optimistic as you can. In my opinion, this includes:

1. Eating healthy. Everyone has a different idea of what this means, so my advice is to eat what makes your body feel best. Generally, fruits and veggies are great, especially at a time that requires a lot of energy.

2. Exercising. Exercising always makes me feel so much better! This is a wonderful break from studying. If you’re able to exercise, you probably will not regret it.

3. Getting some sleep. I know it’s hard, but I find that at least trying to sleep at consistent times helps me stay energized and focused for studying and getting things done.

4. Smiling. I understand that life is busy, etc. However, if you make an effort to stay cheerful, you’ll feel better, which is always beneficial! Think of your favorite things that have happened this semester and exciting things happening over break and in the future.

You can do it!!!
