Allow Yourself Breaks
Most likely, there is a lot of work that needs to be done in short amount of time. Try to come up with some sort of schedule that allows you to take a 5 minute break every hour. Studying non-stop for hours at a time can lead to major frustration. Don’t forget to give yourself a little break every once in a while!

Keep Track of Your Work
Make a schedule and stick to it! Take things one at a time. Work through a project and once it’s complete mark it off the list and move to the next one! Your workload will be must more manageable if you take things one at a time!

Stay Active
Take a walk or go for a run! Being active is a great way to relieve stress. For a few minutes let go of everything that is weighing you down and just enjoy the moment.

Keep Things in Perspective
It seems like it’s never going to end, but it will be over before you know it! You may think that the best thing to do is to pull all-nighters every night and study non-stop. But, don’t forget to take care of yourself! Get plenty of sleep, eat fruits and vegetables, and stay active! You will do so much better when you’re healthy!
