November, for me, was the month when I just wanted to walk away from school and never come back! The pressure is building and it can easily turn into stress. Create some relief from that pressure and stress by interspersing study and class time with exercise, some time in nature, some laughing, and something new. All of these activities are stress relievers. Studies show that when you give yourself a change of scenery, your mind is refreshed. So don’t be tempted to plod along for endless hours. You’ll be much more productive by taking some mind-rejuvenating breaks.
