Eat and Sleep Appropriately

Many students choose to sacrifice sleep and proper nourishment in favor of making more time to study. If you're one of them, stop! You should realize that this approach not only isn't healthy, and can actually be detrimental to your learning experience and your performance on your tests. A study published by Harvard Health Publications, confirms that a lack of sleep is tied to memory and thinking problems, both of which are bad news during finals. Instead, plan your week effectively, so you can have time to sleep enough and eat a proper meal that will help you reach your potential.

Plan Out Your Week

Surely, you have a lot of things to do during finals: you need to study, do homework, finish projects, take tests, sleep, eat well, go to class, meet with your study group, and much more. If you don't want to feel overwhelmed and stress by all of these duties, plan out your week effectively. Make a list of everything you have to do and set a date/time to complete each of those tasks (remember to prioritize and to give more time to subjects that are challenging to you). Being organized with your time will help you stay on top of everything.

Employ Appropriate Study Methods

Finding the right study methods can be a fairly personal endeavor: what works for some, won't work for others. Regardless, one method that doesn't work for anybody is cramming the night before a test since, as stated above, your memory can betray you due to a lack of sleep. To become a more successful student, you must search for the right study method. For instance, try studying days in advance, checking your notebooks, and practicing often. You can also turn to tutoring, employ mnemonic devices, or adapt to your learning style to study effectively. But the most important thing you can do is try your best to understand the material you're going over.

Find Ways to Relax

During finals, "relaxing" can be easier said than done. However, it should get done, lest you end up overwhelmed, anxious, and exhausted. For example, you can take 5-minute breaks when you study. This will help rest your mind, which can get pretty tired if you've been working for a long time. Giving it a breather will ensure it will stay strong for longer. You can also engage in other activities to relax and channel your nervous energy: taking a walk, talking to a friend, or thinking positive thoughts about yourself can calm you down and give you perspective.

Work Out if Possible

Speaking of gaining perspective and calming down, there are quite a few reasons why you should try fitting in a workout (30 minutes of light cardio at the most) during your finals. For starters, working out increases blood flow to the brain, which can help you learn better. Additionally, it gives you a reason to get up from your chair, which you're probably on for hours while studying. Finally, and as mentioned above, it helps you relax. Test anxiety can hinder your performance, and working out can allow you to shake off those uneasy feelings.

Focus on Studying

Finally, with the end of the school term so close, you may be tempted to leave it all behind to hang out with your friends. Still, aside from working out and relaxing a bit, you should do your best to give your undivided attention to studying. This includes not partying and not wasting time on social media. Instead, focus on finishing on a high note, so you can then join your friends without having to worry about your academic responsibilities.
