Exams week is a stressful time for most students. You may find yourself mentally and physically overworked. Many who get stressed do not know how to deal with it properly.
Let’s help you manage your lifestyle.
Make a schedule.
This will go a long way in avoiding stress by making sure you don’t miss a deadline or forget an exam. Use a simple calendar app such as Google Calendar to lay out your schedule for the entire exam time. You can schedule and colour code specific times to study for each exam. Be sure to give yourself enough time for other activities like chores and sleeping. A better-organized schedule will make you feel in control of your time and decrease stress from having to remember everything in your head.
A good night’s rest is important for your mental and physical stamina. Sleeping well will give you a solid start to a new day and go a long way towards decreasing your stress levels. Take a few steps to ensure you get all your zzz’s.
- Stay consistent in your sleep schedule. Go to sleep and rise at roughly the same time every day.
- Do not go to bed hungry or stuffed. The discomfort may keep you up.
- Do not use electronic devices before bed. The artificial light can mess with your body’s internal clock
It’s important to eat a well-balanced diet to maintain a good energy level. Be sure to consume plenty of fruit and vegetables and have a good balance between starchy foods such as rice and pasta and protein-rich foods such as meat, beans, and fish.
- Drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
Listen To Music.
As most people say, “music is my escape”… this is actually true peeps. Music helps in relaxation and revision. We can’t tell you the genre which can help but make a good choice!
Cook/hang out with friends.
If you are living in a college dorm, and your building doesn’t have much in the way of kitchen accommodations, see if you can arrange to use an off-campus friend’s kitchen. Even if you’re not great at cooking, this can be a fun way to relax and socialize, and at the end, you’ll have food either way.
