Stay green (and calm) for finals

Finals.  Perhaps the most dreaded word in the history of forever for anyone enrolled in school or a university. They’re stressful, annoying, and unreasonably difficult. Plus, this is usually what happens on exams:


Yeah. Story of my life.

However, when you’re taking a break, did you know that there are more eco-friendly ways of being stress-free? Here are some tips!

  1. Instead of going out for a drive…ride your bike or go for a run. This may be something that many of you do anyway, but if you’re trying to go somewhere to get some stress relief or to find another place to study (like a coffee shop) find another form of transportation that will give you some fresh air and sunshine. Plus, you’ll get a tan. That’s always nice.
  2. Instead of snacking on junk…eat fresh, organic produce. Not only does this give you good energy, but you are also helping local farms and promoting the idea of not putting harsh chemicals into our farmlands. Sure, this might be a one-time thing…but we hope it becomes into a habit!
  3. Instead of cramming all night…divide up studying for a longer period of time. Not only will you be able to retain the information longer, you also won’t be wasting electricity by keeping your desk lamp on over your work like it’s being interrogated. Plus, more sleep. We all like more sleep.
  4. Instead of printing all your notes…keep a digital copy! This saves a lot of paper. Plus, you will look super cool studying at the park with your Kindle, TOMs, and aviators.
