We are at the home stretch. There are only a few weeks left before finals, and this time is stressful for everyone. Self-care is probably not the first thing on everybody’s mind, but it is important to take care of yourself to do well. Here are my quick tips for you.
- Take a walk / workout
This is a great way to take a break from studying and get moving. Even though you’ll be taking a break, you will still be doing something to improve yourself. You will also be able to clear your head before getting back to studying. You will come back ready to work again.
- Spend time with friends
Get lunch or dinner with friends or study with them.
- Treat yourself
It is important to treat yourself after working so hard! Get Starbucks, a baked good, whatever makes you happy. If you enjoy it, and it helps you feel better, then it is something you should do.
- Go to sleep early
This may be hard, but getting enough sleep is important for both your mental and physical health.
- Have a relaxing spa night
Do your nails, a facemask, take a bath, whatever you enjoy doing that will help you destress.
- Do some journaling
If you are having a hard day, write about it. If you feel motivated, write. Nobody needs to see it, just write what you want, and you can start over the next day.
