Happy Wellness Wednesday everyone!!
I am currently finishing the second to last day of my junior year, and I am so excited for summer vacation!! This week was basically finals week for me, and even though I don’t have any written exams this semester I know the feeling all too well! While the week is usually filled with high stress and caffeine levels, it’s important to take time to soothe your mind, body and soul! I wanted to share six of my top tips on how to enjoy finals week, because for most of us it’s the dreaded week that we wish didn’t exist! Also, be sure to check out my Final Exam Study Tips / Managing Stress post for a little extra inspiration!
Take A Break
Relax your mind for a while, and take a break from studying! You deserve time to yourself without worry. Studying is only successful if your mindset is, so take breaks to refresh your being! For every 2-3 hours of studying, give yourself an hour break in between and do something that you enjoy!
Is there truly anything better than fresh air and sunshine?! Head outside and listen to the birds, smell the flowers, watch the clouds, and enjoy your surroundings! There is no better way to destress than by emerging yourself in nature, and I guarantee your mood will be completely lifted!
Spend Time With Friends
Plan a coffee date, go for lunch, or even throw on your comfiest clothes and have a study session! Spending time with friends will leave you smiling and laughing, which will boost your energy and lower stress and anxiety levels! Even when you’re having a busy week, always make time to spend quality moments with the people you love!
Stock Up On Snacks/Drinks
(Vegan + gluten free rosewater & pistachio ice cream, I’m in HEAVEN!)
Throw all of the health/wellness advice out the door for this post, because finals week calls for your favorite snacks and drinks! I promise the week will be much more enjoyable if you stock up on delicious treats, because who doesn’t love to have a snack (or a pizza!) after a long day of cramming? You deserve it!
Finals week will most likely cause a lot of mixed emotions, so definitely take time to detox during the week! Detoxing your mind, body and soul will remove any toxic energy, and will release all of those emotions as if a weight is being lifted. My favorite ways to detox are to meditate, take a bath, take deep breaths, take a nap, light a candle, and go to hot yoga!
After a long day/week, treat yourself to something that makes you ecstatic! Whether it’s retail therapy, your favorite meal (my go-t0 is sushi!), a road trip, or a day at the spa, do something that is going to make you as happy as you can possibly be! You worked hard, and you deserve it!
