Paul's Tip of the Week: Peer Advisors' Advice

This week, I asked some of my fellow peer advisors ways in which they deal with the high amounts of stress and work associated with the end of the semester. Here are their little tips on strategies on practicing self-care and make sure you stay focused and motivated during this critical time of the semester.

Tyler:  "Sleep, make time in your schedule to sleep before an exam...also set multiple alarms if you have an early exam. There is nothing more embarrassing than walking in late to a final or missing it completely."


"Plan ahead. look at your finals schedule early to make sure you don't have 3 on one day or 2 at the same time. Also use this to plan out a study schedule for the week ahead"

Gabby: "Go to the gym to release some stress from studying"

Liz:  "My main advice is taking small 5 minute breaks throughout studying (like every hour) but making sure that they only last 5 minutes. That and lots of sunshine/fresh air."

So remember, it is important to stay busy and focused on your work during these next few weeks but it's also important to take care of yourself, get some sleep, and take breaks.

Maybe one of those breaks you take could include going to this year's Acappellooza event this Wednesday at 7 PM in Bowker Auditorium featuring performances from all the acapella groups on campus! Great way to sit back and relax for a little while.
