I don’t know about you, but finals week stresses me out beyond belief. It is really important to take some time after the stress to unwind and rejuvenate. Here are some of my favorite ways to unwind for a few days and get ready for a new semester.
- Read for fun
The entire semester is filled with demands to read various textbooks, novels, journals, and articles. It’s time to sit back and dive into some lighter reading. Whether you are rereading a favorite or catching up on the latest must reads, reading a book on your own terms is a great way to escape from the daily grind.
- Catch up with old friends
Sometimes texting just isn’t enough. You need some quality time with your friends to help you refocus on what’s important. Try going bowling or finding another inexpensive activity. You don’t have to break the bank and let’s face it, we don’t have much in there to begin with!
- Cuddle your pets
For me, the worst part about college is that my dog is no where to be found. Take some time to snuggle and play with your pets. Lets face it, they’re the main reason we Skype home anyway.
- Watch your favorite movie/TV show
All semester you’ve had to ignore TV while you studied. It’s time to binge! Go ahead and indulge! You don’t have any exams to study for or homework to do. Instead, you can watch your stories guilt free. (If you are looking for a new show I would HIGHLY recommend Arrow!)
I hope you all have a relaxing break and will feel refreshed and ready for the next semester! Don’t forget to take time and get organized for next semester.
