Mental Wellness Month

 

Develop a positive attitude — people with positive attitudes tend to be happier, and better able to handle crises and stress. And in concert with a positive attitude, get an attitude of gratitude for what you have instead of dwelling on what you don’t. Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be good. 

Finals Mental Health Tip

  1. Create a study schedule to avoid cramming
  2. Change up what you are studying/ rotate through classes
  3. Get a good night’s sleep
  4. Take breaks to improve your performance.
  5. Put finals in perspective! Remember that you’ll go through multiple finals weeks in your college life. Instead of pressuring yourself to perform well, keep things in perspective. Finals week can seem all-consuming, but remember that you’re a whole person with needs outside of a single week during the semester.
  6. Being kind to yourself can help you both academically and from a mental health perspective.
