Believe it or not, final exams are just around the corner! What is your studying game plan? To succeed you need to have a plan of attack. Here are the measures I take to make sure I am prepared to dominate my midterms, or any sort of exams for that matter!

  1. Dress for success: Keep it cozy. There is nothing more distracting that an itchy sweater or too-tight pants. I always opt for comfortable combo like yoga pants and cozy over sized sweater. When you are studying, you want to be comfortable.
  2. Put away distractions: Silence your phone, turn off the radio or TV, let yourself study in silence!
  3. Snack healthy: Prepare yourself for studying by snacking on things that give you healthy energy and keep you fuller longer.
  4. Take breaks: Experts say that if you get up and walk around every hour you are studying it helps you concentrate more. During your hour break, give yourself a reward like 5 minutes on social media.
  5. DON’T CRAM: Do not not NOT cram the night before a test! Study in bits the week before the exam. It will help you feel more prepared and less panicked!

Good luck, you will kill those exams!

Whether you’re in high school or college, finals week is always a scary time.  Between studying for multiple classes and trying to keep your sanity, the last week of school can get hectic.  In order not to lose your cool, check out these tips for a smooth finals week!Chelsea Crockett- studying for finals

  • Put your phone on silent and set it across the room! I know this may sound impossible to some, but it’s totally worth it. Every 30 minutes allow yourself to check your phone! You’ll be super focused!
  • DON’T study too much! Sitting at a desk for 7 hours reading the same material won’t do much for you. Instead, study for an hour and then take a snack or TV show break. You’ve got to allow some time for yourself.
  • Get a good night’s sleep! If you think staying up till 4a.m. is the way to go you’re wrong! Try closing your books at 10p.m. and hitting the hay.
  • Keep distractions to a minimum. It’s easy for our minds to wander, so being in a quiet environment will help with that.
  • Eat brain foods like bananas, blueberries, and almonds.
  • DON’T stress out! If you start to panic about an exam it will be harder to study! Believe in yourself!

Good luck Insiders!

With summer just around the corner, it’s hard to find the motivation to study for finals.  The changing warm weather makes it even harder to stay in the library for hours at a time.  It’s tough to avoid finals when they are usually a huge part of your grade!  Although there is nothing fun about studying, I’ve got a few tips and tricks to help make your next study session a little less painful!

Trying to cram all of your studying and work into one session can actually have a negative effect on your health and your grades.  It’s important to take breaks and give yourself time to breathe.  Although it may seem like a waste of time to leave your studying materials on your desk while you hit the gym, it will actually help in the long run!  Taking a break to exercise will increase blood flow and help improve your memory.  Don’t forget that your physical health is important too!

Make sure to snack!  Carrying around small, healthy snacks will give your brain the fuel it needs to keep on studying and retain information.  It is also very important to get enough sleep.  EvenChelsea Crockett- snacks for finals if you feel like you haven’t studied enough, close that textbook and hit the hay!  Lack of sleep will cause memory loss and confusion while taking a test or writing a paper.  Your brain cannot function properly if it’s running on empty!

Try studying with a group of friends!  Even if you’re not studying for the same test, just having other around will make you feel less lonely and give you more of a drive to study.  Just try not to talk or joke around the whole time!

Although finals may seem like a drag, be sure to treat yourself with proper care and reward yourself once the big test is over with!

Good luck Insiders!

It is middle March…You know what that means? Finals are coming!! Finals can be mentally and physically exhausting, so it is really important that you are prepared! Here is Chelsea Crockett’s Finals Survival Guide!

1. Eat a healthy breakfast.

If your stomach is grumbling like a wild banchee in the middle of your finals, not only will it distract you, your brain cannot function as well when it is not fueled! By eating a nutritious breakfast that will fill you up and keep you full all day, like oatmeal and toast and fruit, you are keeping your brain alert and allowing yourself to stay alert during your finals!

2. Don’t cram!chelsea crockett

Cramming right before you take a test is a recipe for disaster. Not only are you totally jumbling and overwhelming yourself, you are also overloading your brain, which can make you forget things that you have already studied! The best thing to do is to study a little bit each day before the final. It is a proven fact that if you study a bit each day, you remember the information soooo much better compared to when you cram!

3. Dress for the occasion.

I know that it is the norm to dress like a hobo for finals, and I am totally guilty of doing it! The only problem with it is that when you dress dumpy, you usually FEEL dumpy. Dress comfortable, but cute! You don’t want to wear your tightest jeans and lowest cut shirt on finals days because you are probably NOT super cozy in that getup. I suggest wearing a cozy pair of leggings and pairing them with a cute sweater and scarf. Cute but cozy! Also, you can keep your makeup light so that you don’t feel oily or uncomfortable during your tests.

 

Good luck Insiders! May the odds be ever in your favor.

XOXO, Chels
