5 things to do to reward yourself after finals

The semester is finally over. You have trucked through Finals and now have 5 weeks to relax and recoup! Here are 5 ways to reward yourself after another semester of deadlines, mandatory organizational events, and 8AM classes.

Originally Friends was going to be removed from Netflix in January but now they renewed the license for a whole year. It is time to kick back and relax and binge watch your favorite show or something new! Binge watching shows and movies are our generation's favorite pastime and what better time to do it than when you have little to no responsibilities on your days off of your seasonal job!


One of the best parts of the SFA experience is that not only the happy memories you will hold but the relationships you will make during your time stressing out at the library before it closes.  I do not doubt that friends will not be super far away from where you are staying during the holidays. Reach out to those who are within a short distance and grab lunch and see a movie!

Music is a huge stress reliever for many students and there are a large number of concerts going on during the break! From Elton John to Jason Mraz, there are plenty of bands that students could go see to take their mind off of the struggles of school.


Start your summer bod NOW. The campus rec will be flooded with students who are trying to work on their fitness for their new year's resolution. Be the early bird and start getting the grind the moment you can! Before you know it you will see progress before new years!

Spend time with your family and loved ones! It is the time to be rejoice and be thankful for the people that have been there since day one. For some of us this might just be the biggest reward of all! Coming home after countless hours of studying and waking up early just to do well on exams and project not only to make good grades for ourselves but to make our family and friends proud back home.
