It's that time of year again, when finals are jumping down the throats of college students. Please pray that I will be able to maintain complete focus on studying, as this is generally the "do or die" time when one botched final can ruin a final grade that one has worked for all semester. It's hard, too, because this is my favorite time of year and its easy to be tempted by all of the festivities. Yet, I know that I must press on and that I will be much happier in the end if I can do well on everything. So, please pray that the Holy Spirit will send an influx of concentration and peace.
Take a few minutes to breathe deeply and let the peace you seek invade your body. Stretch your muscles. Do neck rolls and shoulder rolls to relieve tension.
Promise yourself breaks and little rewards after a certain amount of studying or work on a paper. But then get back to work when break-time is over.
Remind yourself that when the papers and exams are done, you'll be free to enjoy the holidays thoroughly. Back in my day, the semester ended in mid-January, so I always toted tons of work home to do on Christmas break and then never did a lick of it. This way is better. Once you're done, you're free to enjoy yourself.
