So it’s that time of the year. Every end of the semester, teachers decide to unleash a wrath of projects, assignments, homework and tests all right before Final Exams. It’s every college student’s worse nightmare. Luckily, the Rec Center is a great stress reliever. Here’s my list of activities that could help you relax and be ready for finals:
1.) Float it away
The pool is a great stress reliever. You can literally float your stress away in the lazy river. It’s the one place where being lazy is a good thing.
When you’ve had a stressful day, it’s not a bad idea to pump some iron. Working out (no Group X after today) helps release built up negative energy. For some people, it energizes them and gets them ready to sit and study.
3.) Massage it away
Massages are a great way to relax and relieve stress. All the lactic acid from stress simply gets rubbed away. But don’t forget, all massage appointments have to be scheduled 24 hours in advance.
4.) Hit the stress out
Another great way to relieve stress is to get hit something! The Rec and the HPE both have Racquetball courts. Just simply check out racquets at the check-in desk. If you’re looking for something to hit outside, you can check out tennis racquets and play tennis at the Tennis Complex right next to the Rec.
Hopefully with these tips, you will survive the Dead/Finals weeks. It always helps if you stay optimistic. A good attitude is half the battle. Besides, it’s just one week. It’ll be over before you know it.
