Staying Healthy During Exams
Midterms are upon us and while everyone is focusing on studying as much as possible and writing fantastic papers, one really important aspect to keep in mind is that doing all of these things with a cold makes the tasks that much more difficult. Staying healthy during midterms is important especially because so many of us spend tons of time in classes around people with colds and in computer labs sharing computers with others. Getting enough sleep is vital to maintaining your immune system as well as keeping focused on studies. I know that some people stay up extremely late working but it’s important to rest your body and your mind. Make sure to stay hydrated and consume foods rich in nutrients to give your body what it needs to fight off sickness. Someone pointed out to me one simple way to stay mentally healthy during this season at CAL, and that is to refer to the midterms as exams instead. Midterms has a stressful connotation to me and might allow us to psych ourselves up for the pressure while exams might place less pressure on us. Whether or not it is the case, I think that anything that can help reduce stress and increase my well being is well worth trying.
