What To Do When You’re Blue

635941288691995957-1761224894_stressed-woman-under-stress-1000x600Honestly, college sucks. That’s the horrible truth that no one wants to admit. Although this is a brutal perception, it doesn’t mean you have to let reality get to you. When you feel like giving up, there are far more things to think about than how much college sucks.

Mid-terms are coming up, so you need to prepare early. Yeah, camping out in your school’s library day and night seems effective, but many college students in the past have made like a broom and overswept through their classes with this technique.

Rather than torturing yourself through your studies in the quietest, most secluded areas, try studying in a comfortable environment. Don’t let studying get you down because it can only hurt you. You can be like a mummy and listen to your favorite wrap music! Psychology Today explained a study showing that students’ memory can be indirectly improved when they are in a positive mood. Listening to your greatest playlist before a long study sesh can benefit you later on.

Another thing to help you survive is too not let your mind wander. It may seem soothing to start letting your mind run wild thinking, “Will adding 18 carrots to my soup turn it into gold?” but before you know it, you’ll stress more about all the time you’ve wasted not getting down to work. In time, you’ll be calculating the precise grade you have to get on your next three exams to barely pass the class. Stay focused to avoid your midterm blues!

Something that students often forget about tests is that you don’t have to study alone! Connect with someone from your class and quiz each other for maybe 30 minutes each day, a few days before the test. This can be in person, over the phone, or on a Skype call. This person doesn’t even have to be in the class you’re taking. A tip from USA Today College said that a good way to study is to go to an empty room and teach someone the material you’ve learned. The best way to know if you’ve learned your stuff is to go teach it to someone that knows nothing about it.

Something else to remember is that when you decide to dedicate time in your day to study for that midterm, that should be your sole focus. You can’t stress yourself out with the many worries of the world. Why can’t you borrow money from a leprechaun? It’s because they’re always a little short, but you don’t have time to worry about your lack of funds. Whenever you need extra cash, remember that you’ll have spare cash in your account when printing with Freenters, and get back to studying.

Finally, spread the midterm cheer! Try to keep your friends just as positive as you are during one of the most stressful times in college.
