Whether it’s your first or last midterm season, it can be a stressful time. Here are a few tips to recharge and stay motivated this November:

1. Follow 50:10

For every 50 minutes, you study, take a 10 technology-free break

2. Plan your meals

Just like you make a schedule of what to study, make a schedule of what you will eat during midterms! Healthy study snacks can be a great way to refuel and take a break.

3. Shake things up

Try to change up your study breaks and study methods. Head to a new library, go for a walk, or if you’re used to studying alone, try booking a library room with a few classmates.

4. Get your 150

The stairs in Stauff are not enough! If you’re sitting down studying all day, it’s important to get up and exercise, it will re-energize you and make you more productive.

5. zzZZZZZ

To do and feel your best, you need to get enough sleep. For a typical student, you need 7-9 hours of sleep and try to avoid naps longer than one hour!

Remember there are tons of resources on campus to support you during your midterms and the entire year. Check out Queen’s University: Resources on SH101 for more information.
