Self-Care During Finals Week

Trying to Be Kind to Ourselves While Also Doing Our Best 

Many of us have been home since November 20th, many of us are not going home. No matter where you are right now, we are all experiencing finals week. Self-care is something each and every one of us can do right now.  

Selfcare isn’t only facials and taking baths. It is mindful minutes, journaling, taking a walk outside, and more. 

Here are some self-care ideas you can do every day to reduce stress during finals week: 

  • Taking a walk outside, even if it’s cold out (be sure to bundle up!) 

  • Meditating for 5-10 minutes 

  • Reading for fun 

  • Call someone you love 

  • Unplug from technology on your study break or for a chunk of time during the day 

Taking part in these achievable activities will help reduce your stress during finals week and beyond. No matter which one you decide to do first, be sure to give yourself some credit and a pat on the back for getting through this challenging semester.
