5 Ways To Survive Finals

We are almost done school?! How is this possible, it went by so fast? Even though we have had so much work this year, we get the luxury of having some more before our summer fun. Just think everyone is so close to going to the beach, having a new internship/job, or even just sleeping. But first here are some tips for to get through this stressful time of finals.

1. Do NOT Procrastinate.

I know, you don’t want to start that long paper, but it has to get done at some point. Just remember what your mom always said, “just get it done.” At least just get some ideas down. Once you do that the rest will follow. This will make your mind focus on the topic and then the next thing you know you will start studying.



2. Go and Get Some Exercise.

Once writers block happens or the material is overwhelming, go get exercise. It gives your mind a break and it might give you an idea for your final. Don’t stress yourself out and do something active before you do. It will help. 

3. Make Time For Food.

I know it is a stressful time, but you have to eat. Ladies, you can not skip a meal. That is the worst thing to do to yourself during this time. This will make you cracky, unhappy, and just hungry. If you do not think you have time to go a get food, then bring some with you. Then you will be able to keep studying. Just remember that your brain needs the food too, so do not skip out on that opportunity. 

4. Log Out of Social Media and Turn Off Your Phone.

If you keep checking on other people or avoiding the work in front of you then you will be in the library a lot longer then you wish. Having all these amazing, but distracting things around will only hurt you right now. The easiest thing to do is just turn off your phone and log out of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr and whatever else you may be tempted to check. This will make you a happier and more focused student. It may be hard at first, but you will thank yourself later! 
5. Talk To Others. 

Taking time to engage and having full conversations with another people can be very helpful. It will give you more energy and a moment away from your work. It doesn’t matter what you talk about it can be something to do with work, or even about what you will do this summer. Some students might not be able to talk at this time, but that means you can call your parents and asked them why you thought it was a good idea to go to college because we all know it wasn’t for this. But really having a conversation can be very helpful. That does not mean you can text! 

Good luck and have a great summer!
