It is hard to believe that exams and the holidays are upon us once again! The year’s end promises fun, family, and festivity. After exams come rest and relaxation. But before that, we endure the stress of law school exams.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately one-quarter of the US adult population suffers from at least one mental disorder each year. Law students often have higher rates of depression and substance abuse than the general population. So as you start to feel the pressure of exams, remember to take time for yourself. In order to make sure that you stay healthy and happy enough to perform your best, do not neglect the aspects of your life that have gotten you this far. We all have, in some form or another, spiritual, physical, social, mental, and personal needs that cannot be ignored.
