According to the CNM website, final exams are just around the corner for students in Math, Science and Engineering or Communications, Humanities and Social Sciences classes.
Kevin Macken, Biology major said this year he is going to try some new ways to keep from getting over stressed so he can maximize his potential including taking time to mediate and exercise more to “clear the head and create room for all the knowledge.”
Macken said “I am super stressed about one of them— I have to do well to pass the class.”
Yoga instructor and Nutrition major, Jamie Duncan said that one great way to relax is to exercise with a yoga class.
Practicing yoga helps calm the mind and releases endorphins that relax the body and make people happy, and practicing yoga also helps to suppress the stress hormone cortisol, she said.
“When you’re stressed it’s harder for you to remember things, so by doing yoga, you’re going to ace that test, you’re going to ace it with flying colors,” Duncan said.
Here are some local venues compiled by the Chronicle that can help melt the stress away at decently priced sessions of relaxation and unwinding to be prepared for when the days finals come around.
