It’s the end of semester and final exams looming—we understand that it’s a stressful time. During exam week (April 12 to 17, excluding Saturday) drop by both campus libraries between 11 am to 5 pm to recharge and revive. We’ll have snacks for you to fuel your body and activities to give your mind a break. Our counselor Kerry Anne will also be available if you feel like a chat. Until then, here are a few suggestions you can try at home:
- Choose foods that have mostly vegetables, fruits, whole grains and / or legumes (beans) in them. It may be easy to grab a doughnut or chips or pizza when you’re pressed for time, but you’ll feel better if you eat something that is packed with vitamins.
- Listen to music.
- Exercise, or at least get up and walk around or stretch. It’s easy to forget to move when you’re studying, but the resulting cramps and soreness can distract your focus.
- Sleep! Or at least make time for a nap. Even 10 minutes can refresh you.
