Worried about finals week??

Here are some tips to keep your stress levels down while studying and taking exams:

  • Positive self-talk

Got a lot of work to do? Prioritize what needs to get done, and encourage yourself to get the most important things done first, do not procrastinate.
Example: I've worked well under pressure in the past. I know I can do it again!

  • Healthy diet

You have to eat! Eat small, frequent meals and snacks to keep your blood sugar and energy levels steady. Going more than 4 to 5 hours without eating can lead to fatigue, low concentration, and headaches.
Examples: baby carrots with hummus, string cheese, tuna salad on whole wheat crackers, vegetable soup, oatmeal made with milk, peanut butter on an apple, bagel or whole wheat bread or crackers, a glass of whole milk

  • Exercise

Working out helps! Physical activity can help, it boosts energy, increases ability to concentrate, and makes you feel great because your body will produce endorphins, which naturally relieve pain and induce feelings of well-being and relaxation.

  • SLEEP!!

Fun fact! Research has shown that students who get 6 or fewer hours of sleep have a lower GPA than those who get 8 or more. It is important to get a good night’s rest before exams!
