Stress for Midterms?
Can’t believe that first midterms are starting next week. I just don’t feel like school has started for a month already. I believe that there’s a lot of you feeling the same way too. I hope everyone feel well prepared, or at least not procrastinated till the last minute =)
I know sometimes we just feel so tired or not in a good mood to study. It is always hard to keep our eyes off from YouTube, or we just can’t resist the great sunshine out there, and most of the time we ended up doing none of the things we suppose to do for the whole day. This is what always happened, and in the end we are so stressed when exams are right around the corner.
I found several effective ways for me to deal with stress. Whenever I feel tired of studying, I will get up, leave the place, and do something else that completely shift my attention away from whatever I was working on. I will cook for lunch or dinner, take a shower (and sing along if you like), call up friends and family, take a walk, do some yoga, or shop for grocery. They all work!
It is also important to keep in mind that sleep deprivation and stress impair memory while exercise relieves stress and keep you healthy and fit! Therefore, if time allows, go to RSF will be another great option. I hope people will find the tips helpful and do well on their midterms.
