While Thanksgiving break is far from over, I will admit that my mind has been on the finals I’ll have to take before coming home at the end of the semester. However, while it is easy for college students to get too focused on exams to prioritize their sleep, friendships, and overall wellbeing, my goal for this finals season is to maintain a balance between my academics and my mental, physical, and emotional health. In order to hold myself to this challenge, and to share with you all the sorts of resources Vanderbilt has during finals, I thought I’d share the 5 best ways I’ve found to destress in what can be quite a stressful time on any college campus!
While finals can be scary, Vanderbilt really does try to make things as peaceful as possible and is there to support its students. This list is by no means comprehensive, and I’m sure the list of things to do to destress is different for every person. Now, back to enjoying Thanksgiving break now that I’ve put some of my own worries to rest!
