5 Ways to Manage Stress at the End of the Semester

As the semester draws to a close, the stress can set in. Here are some ways to help relieve the pressure the final few weeks of this semester:

 

1. Go to the gym.

Getting at least thirty minutes of activity every day can help reset your energy. 

2. Eat healthy.

 Brain foods can help you when you're in a studying rut. Avocados and blueberries make a great study snack. They help improve cognitive function and can help protect your brain from stress. 

3. Go for a walk.

Getting fresh air and sunlight can make a huge difference in your mood and helps to get you in your feet!

4. Make a list for the day/week. 

A to do list will help you feel motivated and can help you organize exactly what you need to do. Making a list of the things you want to get done for the day or week is helpful as long as all of the items are reasonable and attainable.

5. Make time for friends.

It’s important to talk to friends even when you're busy. Balance school and fun by making time to hang with friends, even if it is just going to dinner or making a call home!
