  1. Take a moment to be proud of yourself: put things into perspective: You are roughly 75% way through with this school year and are well on your way to blissful summer.

  2.   Take some time for yourself/outside: when studying for finals or cramming for a final project, enjoy the warm weather (soon) of the end of the year and go on a walk, or just step outside for some fresh air to get oxygen flowing in your brain and your muscles moving.

3. Talk to your teachers: Believe it or not, teachers want you to succeed in their class– make sure to have open communication with your teachers regarding stress, how to prepare for finals, and maybe some advice for rounding out his/her class on a good note.

4. Start studying in advance and PLAN: Begin reviewing for your finals early and compiling all your notes and study materials together in the weeks prior to the exam, not the night before. It may seem like a lot of work now, but you’ll thank yourself for doing it later!

5. Don’t panic: Remember–one grade won’t define your entire high school career, or your life! Stay calm, study hard ,and keep in mind that it will not be the end of the world if you don’t ace the final like you had hoped for!

6. Reward yourself: Working hard is… hard! Make sure to do something just for yourself when you accomplish a goal– whether that’s taking a nap or getting some froyo, celebrate the little victories you accomplish on your way towards your bigger goals and priorities.

7. Hang out with friends: As the finals season stress starts to kick in, try to spend some time with your friends and have fun. Though your upcoming exams may seem overwhelming, just remember that everyone else is going through the same things as you and that you’re all in it together!

8. Plan your summer: Though it may seem ages away now, while you’re drowning in work, summer is only a couple of months away! Start thinking about all the fun you’re going to have over break, and June 22 will be here before you know it!

9. Study buddies: Coordinate study groups with some of your friends to make all the time you’ll be spending studying over the next couple of months a little less dreary! Schedule study sessions, bring copious amounts of snacks and most importantly — motivate each other!

  1. Get going!– After you spend a few hours on the Maroon website, get a head start on your tasks and put off procrastination to be one assignment closer to freedom.
