“Some students let the stress get to them,” says FSU sophomore Allison Tepperberg. “They pull all-nighters, which is actually proven to make your test performance worse because you don’t retain half of the information that you’re studying.”

To release the academic stress, Tepperberg takes one hour from her day and spends it away from books and at the gym. McGregor also handles stress by setting time aside specifically for the gym.

Students take priorities into account when preparing for exams

Write a five-page paper, then study for a final exam. Now multiply that by four additional classes, the minimum for a full-time student’s course load.

In the remaining weeks of this fall term, FSU students begin feeling the pressures and anxiety that arise during preparations for finals.

Though additional study hours are expected during finals, time management and prioritizing are key components to keep students well-rounded and healthy during their finals stress. In visualizing their schedules through weekly and monthly calendars, students can keep track of important dates, but also of their availability.

According to Medical News Today, a new study shows that stress affects students’ sleep more than caffeine, drugs/alcohol or technology use. Daily activities, such as a positive sleep, diet and exercise regimen tend to be dismissed during finals time.

However, to ensure healthy lifestyle choices, students should be leaving room for unexpected events in their schedules, as well as time for personal relaxation.

After hours of focus on Powerpoints and rereading highlighted text, students can grow weary and burnt out, thus useless for long-term retention.

“I tend to nap before doing any kind of long-term studying and that way I am well rested before starting any studying,” says FSU sophomore Erin McGregor. “I strongly believe in getting plenty of sleep instead of straining your body.”

Part of what causes students’ stress levels to rise during this time is the overwhelming feeling that comes with multiple deadlines per class in close proximity.

“Some students let the stress get to them,” says FSU sophomore Allison Tepperberg. “They pull all-nighters, which is actually proven to make your test performance worse because you don’t retain half of the information that you’re studying.”

To release the academic stress, Tepperberg takes one hour from her day and spends it away from books and at the gym. McGregor also handles stress by setting time aside specifically for the gym.

“I actually learned in one of my classes that this is one of the top ways to relieve stress and make you feel better,” says McGregor, a current nursing student.

As students scribble out to-do lists and mark calendar days, tunnel vision of studying for upcoming exams may also affect students.

“It’s extremely important to maintain a social life while studying for finals, because sometimes you end up reading a chapter and at the end, you have no idea what you read,” says Tepperberg.

An article produced by U.S. News & World Report about time management in college makes the point that over-committing and being over-involved can hinder a student’s time management. When looking for time to fit in those extra study hours, priorities matter.

While time management applies throughout the semester, and beyond schooling itself, prioritization of multiple things is crucial during finals time.

“Either way, there will be some kind of consequence with doing so many things, whether your grades become worse, you lose relationships with friends, or even lose your job,” says McGregor.

Students who feel overwhelmed by the final demands of the semester may seek out their advisor, counselor and tutoring centers or professors.

Many students opt for study groups for study sessions; it is harder to break the promise of studying at a specific time and length with a group.

“My number one piece of advice is to cancel your Netflix subscription,” says FSU senior Ardon Polukoff. “I know plenty of people, myself included, who could spend an entire day ploughing through movies. Honestly, we all have too much going on and the last thing you should be doing is spending your time watching every episode of Madmen or Entourage. Save that for when you retire and have nothing better to do.”

.....item 2a).... youtube video ... Muddy Waters - Eletric Mud (1968) Full Album [HQ] ... 36:50 minutes ...

Electric Mud is a studio album by Muddy Waters. Released in 1968, it is a concept album which imagines Muddy Waters as a psychedelic musician. Producer Marshall Chess suggested that Muddy Waters record experimental, psychedelic blues tracks with members of Rotary Connection in an attempt to revive the blues singer's career.

The album peaked at #127 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart. It was controversial for its fusion of electric blues with psychedelic elements, but was influential on psychedelic rock bands of the era.

This record was first released in 1969 and gained great reviews. But by some reason it was never released on cd. So I decided to transfer it from my orginal vinyl to upload it here. I remixed it and adjusted the volume levels to make it sound better. Hope you enjoy and if you want more please suscribe to my channel.

This dome is actually the top of a silo. Nothing to do with Ansel Adams' photograph of the same name.
