Senior year can stress you out  to the point where you just want to give up. But don’t give up just yet. Here are a few tips to destress yourself and some motivation to keep moving forward.

The first thing you want to make sure you’re able to take time out of your schedule for yourself. Whether it’s just one hour or 15 minutes, not everything should revolve around school. Remember you have a life outside of academics, and having time to yourself also goes with your mental health. Overloading your brain isn’t too good when you have a headache  every day as a result.

Planning ahead relieves stress because you have everything in order prior to beginning a task. Prioritizing helps figure out what you need to go ahead and get done, and figure out what you want to do in your future. Make sure you get enough sleep. This is also goes in the prioritizing category because when you get everything done in a timely matter, you can get better sleeping times.

Although taking as many AP and Advanced classes that you can take can be good for your college transcripts, don’t overload yourself. Overloading creates more stress because you might have homework in every class each night, with your other classes in mind. Your senior year should be challenging, but you have to remember it’s senior year and it should also be fun/exciting.

Senioritis is something you can’t avoid, there will be days where you just want to give up. Powering through helps remind yourself how far you’ve come, and the person you’ve become. Graduation is the day you can show everyone how hard you’ve worked and where you will end up in life.
