Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going. -Sam Levenson

We’re almost halfway through third term (insert smile or deep sigh or both here).  For many, this means deadlines and midterms (exhale). Here are 3 tips for navigating this busy time:

  1. As you’re preparing for whatever is on your schedule, consider doing a 3 minute body scan to relax and focus.
  2. Before a test, consider making a few power poses to aid in a confidence boost.  
  3. Confront negative self-talk with positive truths. Example: I never do well at timed exams.  Positive truth: It’s true I haven’t done well at timed exams in the past, but I’m open to doing my best today and focusing on the test in front of me.

Here in Student Life, we encourage you to keep going; you’re almost there!
