Staying Focused at The End of the semester

Is this semester making you feel drained? The weather is getting nicer, the days are getting longer and your attention span may be getting shorter. You probably got bombarded with quizzes, projects and exams right after spring break. It can be very overwhelming and you can just lose your morale at the time of finals. We don’t want to throw out all the hard work we’ve done all semester just because of a little stress. So, here are some tips to help you finish out the last semester strong:

Catch up on your rest.
Try to get as much sleep as possible. Sleep is very essential to our health and can change the way you perform. It really does make a difference.
UMSL now offers you a place to take a nap during the day. Look into to Whole U today.

Avoid procrastination.
We hear this a lot but it’s very common. Don’t wait until it’s too late!

Prioritize your time. Make yourself a check list and put those that are most important at the top of your list. Checking off those items feels so awesome.

Reward yourself.
If you follow the checklist method it’s easy to add a little reward system in. Finish a paper, celebrate with a Netflix movie. Study properly for an exam, reward yourself with dinner out with friends.

Keep your goals in mind!
Finishing off each semester strong gets you one step closer to fulfilling your dreams of becoming a nurse, lawyer, teacher or whatever it may be.
Keep studying strong! You’ve got this!
