Take Care of Yourself

Posted on

I'm sure that throughout this whole bar exam prep process, everyone and anyone has said the phrase, "You need to make sure to take care of yourself." I know that's easier said than done. You're probably sleep-deprived, stressed, and over caffeinated. I wanted to bring to your attention a few simple things you can do to help take care of yourself that you might not have been aware of!

(1) Get Angry Sometimes

Remember, serenity now, insanity later! Studies have shown that expressing anger every once in a while increases blood flow to the part of the brain that is involved in feelings of happiness. So the more you get angry, the happier you could be! Kinda makes sense right?

(2) Soak up some rays

Really, the way you should look at it is everything is good for you in moderation. It's true that too much sun can cause skin cancer, but slather on some SPF 45 and a little sunshine can really go a long way. The sun's rays can help muscle functioning, decrease chances of arthritis, osteoporosis and different cancers.

(3) Play action video games

Recent studies have shown that playing action video games can improve creativity, decision-making and perception, all things that can benefit you on the bar exam.

(4) Eat chocolate

Cocoa is actually known to contain an anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-cancer element called bioflavonoids. So go ahead and treat yo'self!

(5) Listening to loud music

Studies done at the University of Manchester have found that listening to music at louder than 90 decibels produces loud vibrations that sends a positive message to the brain. This does not apply, however, if you are listening to music using headphones because you will go deaf.

'so, go ahead and take care of yourself. You need to stay as happy and sane as you can throughout your bar exam prep. You can do it. Drink water. Catch some rays. Exercise. Eat chocolate. Treat yo'self!

Happy Studying!
