Finals week can be one of the most stressful times of the semester. Eating, exercise, and sleep all have an impact on how we function-this is especially important during finals week. We want to make sure that you can keep yourself going.
It’s essential to maintain balance and cover all areas of self-care: physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, personal, and professional. This wheel is not an exhaustive list of way to self-care; there are many more options that are right for you.
Why is self-care so important? In addition to breaking the cycle of stress, self-care helps us increase our positive feelings towards others and ourselves. It improves our confidence and self-esteem. Interpersonally, it helps us to establish boundaries with other people and keeps relationships healthier.
We hope you have a good finals week and a great spring break!
