Spring break is over, and it seems your will to go to classes ended along with it. It’s cold and then it’s raining and then it’s summer for a day. April is coming up and it even though it seems like summer vacation is right around the corner, a long month of classes and exams awaits. But it doesn’t have to be all bad. Follow these tips and get rid of those end of the semester blues!
Take a deep breath
If you’re feeling like you can’t catch a break from the terrible things happening to you over and over again, it’s important to realize not everything is as bad as it seems in the moment. Take a deep breath and know you’re going to be okay and you WILL get through this semester.
Try something new
We’ve all heard this one whenever feeling down, but it can be a lot simpler than joining a yoga class or a club. Hang a new picture in your room, cook a new recipe, clean your car, buy a new outfit, or call someone you haven’t talked to in months. Trying something new can seem taxing and even add more stress, but it’ll be worth it.
Call your parents and friends
It’s important to get in touch with other loved ones. Most college students call their mom once a week or day. Facetime your high school best friend and catch up. Message your aunt. Snapchat your dinner to your dad.
The weather is warming up each day, and the sunlight is more available which gives you the perfect opportunity to get out of your room. It’s easy to fall into the routine of going to class, coming home and feeling so tired all you want to do is sit in your room and wait for dinner time. Take a walk, study at a cafe instead of your room, drive with the windows down, visit the humane society, or go eat outside.
If you need a little pick-me-up to get you through these last weeks of the semester, fresh sheets can probably cure you of your blues. Or rearrange your room and feel more relaxed.
