The school year is finally coming to an end, and although the approach of summer is exciting, the stress of finishing all essential skills and trying to get those last minute points. Although it can be overwhelming, and can sometimes get in the way of that summer temptation. But it is important to remember to stay calm and enjoy those last days at school.

For one, sleep is very important when it comes to stress. Even though you might think staying up until 2 a.m is the only way to pass your last test, that lack of sleep can leave you tired and discouraged. It can become a vicious cycle of being awake at night and tired during the day. And although that may be fine for summer, that schedule is not ideal for school hours.

Another thing all students need now and then is to have a positive mindset. This is much easier said than done, but it is almost impossible to finish strong this year with the cloud of negativity hanging over your head.

Although this feeling is very normal, there are ways to improve that mindset. So, it’s important to replace those kinds of thoughts with more accurate ones: usually a stressful situation is not the end of the world, will not last forever, and can be improved in at least a few small ways by the actions we choose to take.

However, the fake it til you make it tactic probably is’t the best idea. Instead, let go of those destructive ways and gain new and healthy patterns to get yourself back on track.

Above everything just remember these last two weeks are just as important as the first. If this is your first year of highschool, or the last, live out these final moments and enjoy them the best you can. Although, the tests and assignments are important, don’t forget to enjoy yourself and those around you, to prepare for an amazing, stress-less summer.
