May 5, 2018 in Hot Topics

It is all too familiar the feelings of nervousness and panic students feel as they are wrapping up their school year. It can seem almost impossible to avoid the extra stress. Here are some ways to let go of that stress to be more productive, and overall happier during the final months of school.

Starting off, one thing to remember during this time is to be kind to yourself. You are very busy right now and may not feel like yourself, but don’t forget to be caring towards your needs. Studying or worrying about studying can seem like your top priority right now, but take a few hours to do something you enjoy. Unrealistic expectations can really set you back, so know your limits. Exercising is supposed to be a great way to relieve stress, so if you are into that, maybe try it out during a study break.

Something that will help immensely is creating a to-do list. At first, it can be difficult to keep track and follow, but once you get the hang of it, it is life changing. You will easily be able to stay on track and see what is ahead. Also, something about getting to check things off a list give you a great sense of accomplishment and pride. Try to plan out your day as much as possible, because the more prepared you are, the more at ease you will feel.

A big component of relieving stress during the end of the school year it to remember to snap out of the mindset that “I am going to fail all my finals” or “I just hate school so much.” Thinking negatively can actually make stress much worse. Try to remind yourself that if you plan out and prepare, the end of the year will be here before you know it and you will be ready for any finals.
