Tips to Remain Cool as Cucumber During Finals

Finals is here! It's a bitter sweet time before summer begins. Your final To-Do list is growing, you've forgotten to shower and your sleep schedule has been cut down by studying. Remain calm! We've brought you some tips so you can handle it all!


Take a walk

Nothing is a better destresser than taking a scenic walk. Head to the closest park, quad or pier and take in your surroundings. Give you head a mental break and leave your phone and books at home!

Eat with friends

Don't let studying consume you to the point where you forget to feed yourself. If you have to, set meal reminders so you don't forget. Maybe even plan an alternative study session, order in lunch with friends and have a study discussion!

Go to yoga

Yoga is my go to when I'm feeling the heat of finals. It's the perfect way to clear your head and regain control of your assignments. Plus it's a good workout too! Yoga to the people offers donation based yoga classes so no need to break the bank! They have locations in Brooklyn, St. Marks, 27th Street, 38th Street and on the Upper West Side. 

Spa study session

Don't let your hygeine slip up! Showers are a good way to calm down and keep clean. Grab some face masks and study while treating your face to a detox.


Thankfully, C's do in fact get degrees. Don't stress too hard, this is only a week of your life! When you feel overwhelmed come back and try one of these tips so you can stay cool as a cucumber. 


Hey guys, my name is Cas. I am a Senior at Pace Univeristy on the NYC campus. I am currently working on a dual degree in Communications and Fine Arts. I've been working with some friends of mine to start up our own creative platform called FUNKNVIBE. It's basically a way for artists, musicians, film makers and any creative minds to collaborate and create. When I'm not volunteering or with my FNV family I'm reading, dancing or working on my latest art piece. I hope to own and design my own publication showcasing the culture around me. I have a personal blog as well as my Her Campus page. I recently started up a blog with FunknVibe so definitely check it out!  I started out as the secretary at for HCPace but moved my way to VP and CC to now President. I love being able to give students on my campus a voice and connect new students to some type of a community. Her Campus has allowed me to organize myself better and find out what goes into running an organization. It's been an absolute joy and I hope for my last year we have one of the best!
