With Christmas only 34 days away and the last day of classes 15 days away, remember to keep grinding through the work and don’t let the stress overwhelm you. Here are a few tips on how to deal with the inevitable stress that will come with finals season:
- Progressive relaxation: tense then release each muscle group individually
- Light yoga: use a combo of deep breathing techniques and various poses
- Meditation: “mental silence” has positive effects on stress
- Deep breathing
- Spark some scents: lavender has been shown to reduce stress
- Listen to music: whatever music to get you relaxed or even up and dancing
- Laugh: reduces physical effects of stress
- Exercise: either at the gym or even a walk outside, clear your head
- Hug it out: reduces blood pressure and stress levels in adults
- Talk to someone: you can bet your bottom dollar that someone else (an adult or a friend) has been where you are or may be in the same situation as you.
Bleeding Blue and White
The Arizona Coyotes were in Toronto last night taking on Maple Leafs in what should have been an easy win. Arizona, currently in last place, made history recently by being the first team in NHL history to not record a regulation win within the first 20 games of the season. Auston Matthews scored late in the third period to tie the game up at 2-2 but but the goal ended up being disallowed due to goaltender interference by Zack Hyman. You can catch the highlights to the game here. If you look closely, Hyman was sandwiched between two Arizona players and was pushed into the goaltender, Anti Raanta. The referees got the call wrong and the game should have headed into overtime.
