4 Easy Ways to Treat Yourself During Finals

Finals week can feel like the end of the world, but it doesn’t have to be. While the school year is wrapping up, it’s typical to lose yourself in the midst of all the pressure finals bring. Sure, it can be difficult to set aside time to unwind and relax, but you deserve it! Here are four awesome ways to treat yourself amid the chaos of finals.


Take a Nap

It’s okay to take a nap and recharge yourself. After all that studying, your eyes need a break. Take a power nap for an hour and rejuvenate yourself.


Go Out for Brunch or Dinner

Grab a friend who’s equally as stressed as you and go out to eat! Not only will you get to indulge in appetizing food that will energize you, you’ll also get to relax and de-stress with a friend. Enjoy a good laugh and food to brighten your day.


Jam Session

Music is the best medicine, so take some time out to jam out to your favorite songs. It’s one of the easiest ways to de-stress and escape the world for a moment. Just remember to keep your headphones in because other people are trying to study too!


Tap into Your Inner Artist

Browse Pinterest for an awesome DIY project or purchase an adult coloring book and relive your childhood. Not only is getting crafty fun, but it also eases stress, boosts your happiness, and protects your brain.

The possibilities to treating yourself are endless! By constantly studying and pulling all-nighters, you’re damaging your health and quite possibly your grades. Put aside some time for a little rest and relaxation to unwind. Breath, and remember: the semester’s almost over! You did it!
