Go get comfy and hibernate for a while, you deserve a full night’s sleep after the crazy experience of finals week that you just went through.

 

Forget about It

You did it. You completed your finals, they are done and over with. Why keep stressing? Stay positive because you know kicked those final’s butts. Positivity and the right mind set is the key to recovering from finals.

 

Spend some time with your friends

Whether you commute or live on campus, winter break is the perfect time to reconnect with your friends! Plan some days to see each other and just hang out. Chances are you’re going to have a lot to catch up on and rant about post-finals week.

 

Treat Yourself

Take some time for yourself. For the past semester, you’ve worked your butt of studying, writing papers and taking tests.
