Shout out to all the college kids this month. It is that dreaded time of year-- FINALS. I've been there, I remember those days. All nighters, staring at notes, pretty much hating life.
Please, please, please take time for yourself. It will make a WORLD of difference. I would sit on the couch and study my notes for hours without a break. Everything would start blurring together and I would freak out thinking how I needed to double down and study more. I would put off eating, and then eat whatever was laying around. I'd feel like hell.
At the time, I didn't see what I was doing. I didn't see how I was just hurting myself. It took YEARS of college to realize I could study less just by taking mental breaks and eating better. You feel like you have to study EVERYTHING or else you might fail....but I promise you that is not the case.
I was extremely lucky to have such supportive family and friends. My parents would drop by to take me out to dinner, my friends and I would have study groups to make sure we took breaks. My now-husband would fill my fridge with easy food to eat on the go.
As the last few finals come to a close, feel proud of yourself. You made it through another semester. Enjoy your break, you earned it.
