I am going to be honest, this week I have being drawing a blank on what to write about. With three more weeks left of school, one of which is finals, my creativity is slowly diminishing. As most of you know, the last few weeks of school are caffeine induced late night sessions of primarily crying into your computer and wondering how bad it would truly be to drop out. I already focused on drowning in college a few months back, so today, I think we should focus on something other than stress and the eternal pit of doom to come (a.k.a: finals week). Let’s talk about stress relievers.
Take care yourself.
You probably thought that this was gonna be a list, but no. The most important thing to do when you are stressed or overwhelmed is to take care of yourself. Don’t end up crying to yourself at 3 a.m. Get the sleep you need. Space out your homework so that you are able to have a 10 minute break here or there. Make sure to eat food, and talk to your friends. Stay hydrated, because if you don’t you will just feel more miserable.
Taking care of yourself is key to handling stress. With finals and school coming to an end soon, remember these two things: focus of your work and focus on yourself. You may be tempted to start thinking about summer vacation, but remember that grades matter too.
On a more positive note, thank you to my followers for reading and staying with me this year.
