- Midterm Mania -
It’s that time again, where your sensitivities heighten and are prone to skin breakouts.
Pretty soon assignments will be due and tests will be taken, however, midterm crisis (mid-life crisis 😅 badum-tss!) can be mitigated.
I hope some of these tips below help you succeed!
✖️ Tips to survive midterms: ✖️
* 1: Create a to-do list and schedule: Make a schedule ahead of time and approximate how much time you will need to spend studying for each exam. Include a buffer day or two because life happens. 🤷🏻♀️
* 2: Prep ahead of time: Think about how you’re going to study for each exam. I.e: outline, flashcards, etc.
* 3: Review daily: Do not think that just because you’ve attended class you can get away with minimal studying. Think about studying as a process that can happen over a period of time. By studying in shorter increments over a longer period of time, you will have time to find your strengths and weaknesses.
* 4: Use study aids: If a professor gives you example problems or directs you to a website, add those resources to your study prep. Use Google or Youtube if you have to.
* 5: Schedule breaks often: Whether it’s because you don’t want to study or because you know you will get distracted.
* 6: Make your space work: While you may have a favorite study spot, it’s best to have more than one. You should study in spaces that have minimal distraction and you can keep organized. * 7: Exercise: You can’t spend all your time studying. Not only does your brain need a break, but your body needs to move away from that library desk you’ve been sitting in for hours.
* 8: Manage anxiety: We all get stressed, but it’s important to know how to deal with your stress. Part of managing anxiety is being prepared and confident. Another part may be implementing simple soothing exercises like meditation and breathing techniques or listening to classical music.
* 9: Sleep: Students tend to get slammed with a ton of work at one point of the semester. Don’t discredit the amount of sleep you will need to be need to be successful. Try to stick to a normal sleep schedule the night before an exam.
