Does hearing, "It's finals week!!!" make you panic?
Finals week can be a stressful time, but a little preparation can help you get through it.
A survival kit gives you less to worry about if you have everything you need nearby.
First things first, gather your textbooks, class notes, and favorite study supplies.
Make it fun with a splash of color:
Pen or pencil to make notes
Notebook or loose paper
Highlighters to mark up your notes
Index cards to make flash cards
Sticky notes to add notes to textbooks
Schedule to plan your study time
Food & Drinks
When you're in the zone, it can be easy to forget to eat or drink.
This can cause you to lose focus and energy.
Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and alert.
Try a little caffeine if you need an energy boost, but don't overdo it.
Keep easy-to-eat, healthy snacks nearby, like granola bars or fruit.
Treat yourself to something sweet when you hit your goals.
Be sure to take breaks for self care. It will keep your mind sharp, reduce stress, and help you focus.
Stress ball for when you feel anxious
Bath bomb to take a relaxing bath
Music playlist to stay motivated
Face mask/ear plugs to help you nap
Medication to relieve headaches or other ailments
Which of these would you add to a study survival kit you're giving to a friend? (select all that apply)
Get ready for finals week!
