The end of the school year is approaching. It is easy to lose track of yourself to focus more on finals, final projects, and exams. One thing I have learned when finals are approaching is to focus on myself too. In the past, I have taken a week- or 4 days- to study and one day for myself. One day to put my phone away, spend it with family, or do something to distract me. I have gone to the gym for the day and my favorite thing- getting my nails done with my mom.
I used to let myself get distracted during studying. When I learned to focus on myself it helped me focus more on the subject I was on. This was because I thought about rewarding myself at the end of the week, focusing on school and being excited for spending time with other people.
I believe it takes a lot to focus on school and only school for a week, or even 4 days, but in the end it is all worth it. I believe any one is capable of it and I would want them to experience the excitement I felt at the end when I was able to spend time with my friends and family, doing the things I love.
