Hello Saluki Green Action Team!
We have had a great semester but as it comes to an end, our focus this week turns to health and wellness – keeping healthy even during stressful times!
Did you know: exam time can be one of the most stressful times for students? Elevated stress, lack of sleep, and all-nighters are common and without proper care, students are more likely to feel overwhelmed.
Take Action: self-care is vital and as easy as 1-2-3-4, even during exam time:1- De-stress - head to the Student Health Service's Dawg Lounge. Enjoy a massage, the Blue Space, or try out the biofeedback to help manage stress! No appointments necessary. Tip: Turn off your devices to reduce excessive stimulation and save energy.
2- Food and Nutrition - eat healthy and stay hydrated. Tip: Shop locally.
3- Get moving - exercise increases blood flow to your brain and helps improve concentration. Tip: Get outside and plog.
4- Plan - make sure you know when and where your exams are taking place. Plan your revision time accordingly so you have time to adequately prepare for each exam. Tip: If possible, walk, bike or take public transportation (stay warm).
Keep up the great work,
Saluki Green Action Team
