It’s that point in the semester where final projects are wrapping up and exam week is upon us! Preparing for exams can be a source of significant stress for many students. The good news is that studying doesn’t need to rob you of your overall well-being!
Here are a few suggestions of mindful self-care choices you can make while memorizing that periodic table:
Take breaks to have some fun
Get outside and/or get active
Seek out a support network
Fuel concentration with healthy food options
Safeguard your zzz’s
Some stress can be a positive motivator to do your best on exams. However, jeopardizing your mental and/or physical health is not worth the stress. Check in with yourself regularly to see what feels like a healthy balance for you.
