Y'all, finals are upon us!
Many of you are already done...like me ;)
But some won't even begin until next week!
I decided to put together a little list of a few things that might help you survive yours...although I don't guarantee A's!
Let's start with nourishment: Water is pretty obvious, that's why it's not on the graphic-but you need to stay hydrated! All nighters will kill you, so as long as you keep hydrated, you will make it to the other side.
Do try to sleep, but if not, you're going to need Starbs and protein!
Grab your favorite coffee (I love the Chestnut Praline Latte!) and then pick up a fruit/nut/cheese plate (Starbucks has these in their refrigerated section, Publix has these where you can pick them up pre-packaged, etc.)
It's so important to keep your strength up, it will help your memory and keep you sane :)
Keeping up with your tasks via a super cute to-do list like this one; I always make to-do lists based on what has to be turned in first/what test is first. That way I know how I have to plan to tackle everything on time!
I also like to use cute sticky notes to remind myself of due dates and test times. These are also super useful for jotting quick notes and keeping your place in books.
Droptime is another suggestion I have for all y'all!
It's my favorite "Educational" app because it's a timer that tells you how long to study for (30 minutes) and then a break (10 minutes). It keeps you on task and has really helped me a lot, especially when reading textbooks!
My last suggestion is finding a good hygiene combination!
It's hard to find time to shower (let's be honest!) so you want to make sure you pick out a great dry shampoo & an even better anti-perspirant!
I tried out this one from Degree (it's spray on!) before a big final presentation, and y'all it works so well!
I was so nervous, but I didn't sweat bit (gross, but helpful to know!)
In the end, remember to just relax and do your best-that's all you can do!
And when it's over, pour yourself a giant
bottle glass of wine and tweet the praise hand emoji!
What did you do/do you do to prepare and survive finals?
Until next time. . .
