Swimming Through Final Week

It's that bittersweet time of year again. The semester is ending and the excitement for summer is rolling in with a cloudy sight of millions of papers and finals before the sunny day. The final days are here and the stress is on as you check those final papers and cram in those lectures to ace your final exams.

This time of the year can be extremelly stressful for every college student. The aniexty from hoping to pass finals just to pass the class or trying to maintain that perfect 4.0 GPA. Whichever is your situation, it is important to remember to stay focused and calm through these last few weeks. The end is near my friend, the end is near.

As the great Dr.Suess once said " You have BRAINS in your head, You have FEET in your shoes, You can STEER yourself any DIRECTION you CHOOSE" .

Here are five tips to make your Final Week a Leisure Swim instead of a Relayed Race!

1. Stay Hydrated

Water is key, keep hydrated to push you through those long days!

2. Sleep at Least 8 hours

Sleep! Sleep! Sleep! I know you want to finish that last episode of 13 Reasons Why, a good night rest will have you focused and energized for the next day and your exams.

3. Manage Your Time

Make sure to allow time to study for all of your classes. Spread yourself evenly across all courses and don't forget to take time for yourself!

4. Keep a Positive Mindset

Think postiively about the upcoming things in the next week. Self-motivation will push you to achieve greatness. You can do it :)

5. Plan a Relaxation Day

Before the madness starts , take a day to just relax and do nothing. This will help you prepare for the days to come.

Remember it will all be over soon. This is just the storm before the rainbow. This rainbow in particular includes Ice Cream dates and Summer Nights. Check out my Summer Bucket List for things to make your summer LIT!

Last but not least, like Dory always says "Just Keep Swimming".
