    I definitely agree that staying active is important. It is easy to get stuck in a lazy routine of sleeping in a little bit and procrastinating all morning with no classes during exams. If you plan to get up and start moving right away, your studying will be much more productive!

    Also, While studying this exam season, try to find a cozy study space near a window so that during the day you are using natural light to study instead of having the lights on! It is good for the environment, your bills, AND your eyes!

  4. Start working out recently! I felt so great after and a lot more energetic in class! And also, totally agree with the sleeps.

  5. omg food gawker consumes my life.. the food on that site always looks soooo good

  6. one thing i’ve found is eating fruit instead of coffee helps me stay awake.. the sugar in fruit gives me extra energy to keep on studying rather than drinking caffine
