“We Need to Talk”: Break Up Your Week

16 Jan

Between buying books, finding classes, and sorting out schedules, the first few days of school can be a bit hectic. However, there are tons of things that you can do to break up your week into more manageable pieces.

1. Take a nap.

Long, challenging weeks inevitably lead to exhaustion and one of the best ways to combat exhaustion is to give in to it. If you have time, don’t feel bad about taking a short, well-deserved nap. Even if you don’t have a whole ton of time on your hands, indulging in a little catnap will make you feel more energized and enable you to conquer whatever college life throws at you.


2. Hang out with a friend.

When schedules get tight, you might find that you aren’t able to spend as much time with your friends and family as you used to. A good way to prevent your relationships from suffering is to plan time with friends. That way, you have time to support them when they need you and vice versa. Seeing friends makes people happy and is a great way to unwind both during and after a long week.



3. Study a little bit at a time.

Studying a little bit everyday is more effective than cramming and it will make your schedule a lot more forgiving. If you set aside 10  minutes for review everyday, then you’re not as likely to have to schedule huge blocks of time to study at the last minute. This will free you up to do what you want to do more often.


4. Enjoy some you time.

Hectic weeks may make you question why you are here. Do not let them win. Being sure to make time for yourself to do whatever you like to do will help you reconnect with yourself and your goals. You have to see yourself everyday and you are worthy of your time.


Have a great semester!
