Students  at  Arizona  State  University  are  getting  ready  to  hit  the  books  and   prepare  for  final  exams,  which  can  be  a  stressful  time  for  many  students.         ASU’s  director  of  Wellness  and  Health  Promotion,  Karen  Moses,  “27.6  percent   of  students  said  stress  had  negatively  affected  their  academic  performance.         Many  factors  contribute  to  student  stress  including  choosing  a  major,  final   exams,  summer  job  pressure  and  planning  for  graduation.  Stress  from  the  end  of  the   year  can  begin  as  early  as  April  and  continue  throughout  the  summer.         “Exercising,  focusing  on  enjoyable  activities,  taking  time  to  relax,  talking   about  feelings  with  others,  listening  to  music  and  sleeping  well  are  all  ways  to   reduce  stress,”  Moses  said.         Students  from  ASU  have  some  helpful  advice  that  can  get  their  peers  through   the  end  of  the  semester  in  a  healthy  way.         Derek  Williams,  19,  studying  exercise  and  wellness  said,  “  I  plan  on  eating   well  and  getting  good  sleep  during  finals  because  if  I  don’t  take  care  of  myself  it  will   just  be  added  stress.”           Many  students  suggest  to  sleeping  regularly,  eating  well,  and  managing  time   correctly  in  order  to  reduce  stress  during  finals.         A  freshman  journalism  student,  Meera  Bose,  plans  on  studying  with  some   friends.    A  great  way  to  study  is  “getting  a  group  together  to  study  the  material  we   have  learned,”  Bose  said.
