Claudia: Fighting the Mid-Semester Slump

So it’s that time a year again. The mid-semester slump. We’re back from Spring Break and I have immediately jumped back into work, classes, and clubs. It’s hard not to overwork yourself during these last few weeks of the semester! So remember to take time for yourself to relax and de-stress from your busy week!

Here are a few ways I like to unwind!

  1. Listen to music

(I exclusively listen to Hamilton)

  1. Watch a movie

(Fellow CA and my roommate Jen has KILLER movie suggestions like Me, Earl and the Dying Girl or What We Do in the Shadows)

  1. Read a book

(I’m currently reading Sick in the Head by Judd Apatow)

  1. Sit in the dining hall and chat with friends/procrastinate for hours

(You can have dessert after your dessert!)

  1. Go out to dinner

(Treat yourself after a long week! Go to Trident on Newbury or Clover over in Central Square — or even explore somewhere new)

  1. Go on a walk on the esplanade

Grab a friend and go on a walk on the esplanade — matching tracksuits are a must!)



(Take naps! Go to bed early!)
