Exams can be the most stressful thing for some people, which causes worries and anxiety. Here are the best ways to manage the stress of finals:
Get some sleep. You probably have homework and need to study, but sleep will help rejuvenate you to your best self. Plus you can always do homework in the library the next morning. Going to sleep at a good time will make a difference in how you do on exams.
Stay hydrated and eat healthier.Try to drink 3 water bottles a day and stay off constant junk food. Junk food only keeps you awake for little but after an hour it will only make you more tired than before. Healthier foods on the other hand will keep you awake and help you stay focused. Water keeps you moving and fresh. By drinking water you will have less headaches and a better functioning system.
Baths are a great ways to relieve stress. You can bring a book and listen to a little music to calm yourself down. Adding a little bit of Epsom salt can relax your muscles. Being horizontal in a bathtub or bed can also help your mood, that’s why sleeping also helps relieve stress.
Don’t over study. When studying, don’t do more than 30 minutes at a time. It will overload your brain and make you even more stressed. If you do little increments at a time it will help you better succeed on exams. Creating a study plan will also help with feeling less stressed and keep you more organized.
