I recently attended a seminar for “destressing” students before college midterms and finals. It was an interesting and informative session. The guest speaker went through a whole plethora of details ranging from the stress, health, happiness, and anger that stems from finals and midterms. On the one hand, there are many students that are happy class is finally over and ending but at the same time there are students whom enjoy getting good grades. These are the ones that are at risk of a whole array of health issues.
In order to maintain your happiness and to stay healthy, it is recommended that you take ample breaks and eat properly during the week before finals. Also, it is important to sleep well before each exam, students often have this belief that staying up cramming is actually helpful, but in fact, it damages you and limits your ability to focus properly the next morning. Take it from me, a person who has gone through the whole entire process of school and college that doing these things are absolutely necessary. I hope that I can convey the importance, especially because I didn’t utilize, or even have access to important information like this. I think in order to find true happiness in life is by being healthy and happy with what you have. If you are getting frustrated because of grades then it is important to relax, destress and take a step back and calm down. Everything will look up and look forward.
Remember, in the words of Bob Marley, “Don’t Worry – Be Happy” Everything will work out, good luck on exams!
