Hello TJSL Law Students,

As you wrap up your final Exams, here are some tips on how to de-stress in San Diego.

  1. Use that FIT membership and get some exercise, or at the very least, sit in the sauna or hot tub for a little while.
  2. Stay hydrated, especially with all the caffeine that many of you are no doubt consuming.
  3. Don’t talk to anyone about how stressed out they are or you will start internalizing it.
  4. Eat something! Preferably something healthy, your body will thank you for eating stress reducing foods.
  5. Play with your pet, or your friend’s pet, heck go to the zoo and pet a non-human animalof some kind:
    1. “The popular Petting Paddock in the Children’s Zoo allows kids (and kids at heart) a chance to feel the wooly coat of a sheep or comb a gentle goat’s hair.” (http://www.sandiegozoo.org/zoo/faq/faq_general )
    2. Video of the Zoo from Youtube – although I recommend that you do NOT try to pet a Meerkat.
  6. And a personal tip, when I was studying for exams, I would keep a stack of comic books under my bed, and when I was ready to take a break, I’d read an ancient comic book about a duck that wore clothes and could talk and had three nephews. No doubt you have much better comics than I had.
