Here are some helpful study tips/stress management techniques:

  • Great music. What’s that go-to song or album that takes you to your happy place? What’s the music that inspires you? Pack it in your playlist and listen to it often.
  • A reminder of your career goal. Provide yourself with a constant reminder why you are studying so hard. Have complete confidence that you will reach your ultimate goal.
  • Get SLEEP. Don’t believe the theory that you can pull “all nighters” or even sleep 2-3 hours per night and get good results. Everyone is more stressed when they are tired. Little issues become big ones. Get at least four hours of sleep a night and you’ll be more relaxed. Start studying a day or two earlier if that’s necessary to get some necessary shut eye.
  • Manage your caffeine. Caffeine is a great tool during finals — in moderation. Too much will make you jittery and make it difficult for you to concentrate. Don’t knock down Red Bull after Red Bull or a two liter bottle of Mountain Dew in one sitting. Also, stop caffeinating at least a few hours before you try to get some sleep.
  • Find a study place away from both friends and classmates. There’s nothing more stressful than when people bother you when you’re trying to study. This is not a social time. Do not do what works for your roommate. Do what works for you. You can be social after finals. Also, classmates who want you to “tutor” them or to borrow your notes are not your primary concern so will drive your stress level higher if you must deal with them.
