4 Essentials To Help You Survive Midterms

Midterms are hard. They're stressful, nerve-wracking, and they're not exactly a great addition to the Christmas season. However, if you have the right essentials and are prepared, midterms aren't that bad after all. Today I've put together four must-haves for exam week so you do your best and aren't so stressed!

4 Essentials To Help You Survive Midterms // Patagonia // Live The Prep Life
Patagonia // I am always cold in school. You can ask any one of my friends, and they'll tell you that I am constantly freezing, no matter what. The only way that I'm not cold is if I put on my Patagonia pullover. I got it for my birthday, and I don't know what I would do without it. It's so thick and cozy, so it keeps me warm. Since I want to be comfortable while taking tests, I always wear my Patagonia over a t-shirt and pair it with some leggings or jeans.

4 Essentials To Help You Survive Midterms // Water Bottle // Live The Prep Life
Water Bottle // Hydration is so important, especially when taking tests. I usually bring two water bottles to school, so I'm never thirsty or dehydrated. I have found that using cute water bottles helps me drink more water, so I always bring this Swell bottle and this Jadelynn Brooke water bottle (featured in my August Favorites).

UGG Boots // These furry shoes are the most comfortable shoes I own, especially when paired with fuzzy socks. I will definitely be wearing these all through finals week, because comfort is key when dressing for test-taking. I have two pairs - a gray one and a black one - and they're both incredibly cozy.

4 Essentials To Help You Survive Midterms // Pancakes // Live The Prep Life
A Good Breakfast // You know those Snickers commercials where they say, "You're not you if you're hungry?" That's basically me in a nutshell. I can't concentrate if I'm hungry and focusing on food. While I have a granola bar or cereal for breakfast on most days, if I have a big test I make sure to have a filling breakfast. I'll either have oatmeal topped with bananas and almonds, or I'll have some pancakes. I love this Birch Benders pancake mix because it tastes amazing, is semi-healthy, and is fairly easy to make. 

Good luck to everyone taking midterms this week! I hope these essentials help make tests a little more bearable, and I hope all of your studying pays off!
