No one ever said finals week is easy. Late-night cramming accompanied by cup after cup of coffee can take its toll on your body, not to mention all of the test stress. But while you strive to review as many books as possible to prepare for your test, don’t forget your health. After all, if you’re sick and uncomfortable during your tests, every effort you’ve made might be in vain. Here are some tips on dieting, dressing and sleeping you can follow to stay energized as you wrangle your finals.

考试周对谁都不是件容易的事:一杯又一杯地喝咖啡只为熬夜临时抱佛脚,身体上早已筋疲力尽,更别提考试的精神压力了。但是,复习诚可贵,身体价更高。如果在考试时生病或是身体不适,之前付出的努力都白费。为了让大家活力满满地度过考试周,下面这些关于衣食睡眠的小贴士一定不能错过!

Food and drink

饮食

The most important thing to remember about eating and drinking is to do just that: eat and drink. It’s easy to forget in the midst of intense studying, but your brain needs sustenance if you have any hope of retaining information.

考试周关于饮食最重要的建议就是:该吃吃,该喝喝。高强度的学习很容易让人忘记吃饭,但若想保证记忆力,你必须得给大脑补充营养。

1. Eat healthily and regularly

按时吃、吃得好

Grabbing an Orion cake from the vending machine is tempting, but it’s important to stick to fresher, more nutritious foods. A banana or orange with some trail mix or yogurt will fill you up better than junk food. Don’t disrupt your food schedule too much and freak your body out. Eat a wholesome breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the same times you always do.

自动贩卖机里的好丽友派也许充满诱惑,但坚持摄入更新鲜、更有营养的食物才是王道。一个香蕉或是橘子,搭配一包什锦果仁或是酸奶要比垃圾食品更好。不要打乱自己的饮食规律,否则身体终会崩溃。早中晚饭的时间最好像往常一样,注意合理饮食。

2. Avoid take-out and junk food

远离外卖和垃圾食品

It’s easy to chow down on greasy take-out and fast food sparingly. But it could also leave you feeling uneasy in the end. Instead, reward yourself once finals are over.

考试周很容易吃很多油腻的外卖或是快餐。但这些食物越吃越难受。不如等到考试周结束后再奖励自己一顿大餐吧。

3. Stay hydrated

多喝水

Drink plenty of water, and then drink some more. Nothing else will help your mind stay clear and keep your energy levels high. Sugary soft drinks will do no good. Spice up your water with fruits like lemon, or swap it for unsweetened flavorful tea, which rehydrates just as well as water.

喝足够的水,最好多喝一点。因为没有什么比水更能让你保持清醒和活力了。含糖饮料有害无益。你也可以在水里泡些水果(比如柠檬),或者把含糖饮料换成无糖茶饮料,它们的补水能力都与直接喝水相差无几。

4. Moderate caffeine intake from coffee and energy drinks

咖啡因和功能饮料摄入要适量

Everyone could use a quick energy boost, but too big of a buzz could leave you feeling anxious, unable to sleep or focus. The last place you need to experience caffeine withdrawal is in the middle of your exam.

人人都能通过咖啡或功能饮料让能量快速满格,但是摄入太多会让你感到焦虑、失眠、难以集中精力。尤其是考试时,切忌摄入咖啡因。

Dressing

穿衣

In addition to eating and drinking, it’s also important how you dress for exams.

除了饮食,考试期间的穿着也很重要。

1. Layer up

备件厚衣

As temperatures and humidity rise, you’ll want to stick to something short-sleeved as a top, whether it’s a flowing graphic tank top or a comfy T-shirt. That said, it could get chilly in the café or exam room if the air conditioner is cranked up to compensate for the weather outside. Be sure to throw your favorite hoodie or oversized cardigan into your bag to make sure you’re not shivering by the time you get to Question 8.

随着温度和湿度的上升,你也许一直穿着短袖上衣,要么是无袖背心,要么是休闲T恤,但是为了抵御室外高温,咖啡馆或是自习室的空调往往开得很大,很容易因此着凉。所以,放一件你最爱的卫衣或是大号的开衫在包里,以免你在做题时冻得瑟瑟发抖。

2. Stay cozy

舒适为上

You’ll want loose, flexible clothing from top to bottom – particularly something you can doze off in at a moment’s notice. If it works for a runner traversing the city streets, it’ll work for you as you plough through that last stack of notecards.

你需要宽松、有弹性的一身衣服,尤其是当你想要小憩之时。如果这件衣服能让人穿着在城市中奔跑,那么也一定适合苦苦钻研最后一叠笔记卡片的你。

3. Accessorize, but not too much

配饰可有,不宜过多

During finals week, it doesn’t hurt to dress things up a little bit and throw on a pair of earrings or a bracelet, but the most important thing is to stay casual and comfortable. Too much chunky jewelry could throw off that delicate balance.

就算在考试周,稍加打扮也无妨,比如速速戴个耳环或是项链,关键是保持舒适和随意即可。太多厚重的首饰会打破舒适与美丽之间的微妙平衡。

Sleeping

睡眠

All of that studying during finals week will be for nothing if you don’t get enough sleep. Sleep deprivation is all too common as the semester wraps up, but it’s also worth avoiding to ensure your GPA stays in top shape.

一旦睡眠不足,你考试周期间的所有学习都将功亏一篑。期末时睡眠不足再常见不过,但是为了你的GPA,保证睡眠也是值得的。

1. Ensure solid sleep

保证有质量的睡眠

Devise your time meticulously to stay ahead of the game. You know your body, your study habits, and your finals schedule, so plan accordingly to squeeze in six to eight hours of solid sleep. If the trek back home would make you lose too much precious studying time, scope out a comfortable spot in the library to catch some sleep. No judgment. It’s finals week, and you’re not alone.

考试前合理安排自己的时间。只有你知道自己的身体情况、学习习惯以及期末时间表,因此在做计划时一定要挤出每天6-8小时的高效睡眠。如果“长途跋涉”回家会花费你珍贵的复习时间,那么就在图书馆找一处睡觉。不会有人说三道四,在考试周时,你一定不是一个人这样做。

2. Take naps

打个盹

Take time for short naps here and there as well. Put your head down or lie down and set an alarm for half an hour to get some quick power sleep to recharge and wake up more alert, if that sort of thing works for you.

时而打个盹。你可以定半个小时的闹钟,然后趴下或是躺下小憩一下,给自己“充个电”,醒来后会更加清醒。不过,这种方法并不一定适合所有人。

3. Keep your environment relaxing

找个放松的环境

Dim the lights, put in some earplugs, or throw on some background music to help yourself fall asleep and give your body a soothing respite from the stress of finals week. This may be tough with an abundance of coffee and computer screens, but avoid stimulants before getting some sleep (and stay hydrated).

把灯调暗,带上耳塞,或是放一些有助睡眠的背景音乐,让你的身体在考试周的重压下得到充分休息。但是,对于喝了很多咖啡或是看了很久电脑屏幕的人而言,这并非易事,因此睡前避免这类引起大脑兴奋的活动,(并注意补充水分)。
