5 Things Scarier Than Your Midterms

Exams have you feeling like a zombie already? With online tools like Numerade, and our Numerade Meet & Study Discord server, we’ve got your back so you can focus on taking care of yourself. Here are 5 things way scarier than your midterms:

1. Not getting enough rest.

If you overwork yourself, you’re going to burn out. Your mental and physical health are more important than any grade! A simple way to ensure you’re taking enough time to take care of you is by scheduling in study blocks and study breaks. Start by figuring out what your short term and long term goals are (example: Cover all of Unit 3 in my textbook; Complete 2 chapters per night, etc.) and map out your week. Try setting blocks of no longer than 1.5 hours to study, with 10 to 20 minute breaks in between.

2. Being all work, no play.

Beyond sleep and studying, it’s important to make sure you make time for the things that bring you joy. Planning ahead and setting aside specific times for activities like your student orgs, sports, hobbies, or time with friends will fight burnout and improve your mood so you go into your study sessions motivated, not overworked.

3. Limiting yourself to textbooks.

Why limit yourself to your books when there’s a whole world of video and online resources out there? Studies show you learn more with video, and with sites like Numerade and Discord, you should be able to get extra help on whatever you’re stuck on—anytime night or day.

4. Not asking for help.

We get it! It’s easy to be too proud, scared, or anxious to ask for help. That’s where online resources and trusted study buddies come in handy. Our Discord server has over 32,000 virtual study buddies who can share knowledge on a topic, commiserate, or hype you up whenever you’re in need of a little extra help!

5. Forgetting to prioritize mental health.

Remember—no grade is worth sacrificing your health. We strive to help students get the help they need, when they need it, in a way they can afford. (We also let you try us free for 7 days!) But in between studying, try to make sure you take time for self care—whether that’s meditating, breathing exercises, therapy, friend time, or taking a break to watch a good show and munch on your favorite snack. You come first.
