Making the Most of Your Study Break

How many times have you decided to take a break from your study session, and suddenly it's been over an hour since you've done anything productive. Holding yourself accountable during your study breaks will help you in the long run with your grades.

There are plenty of ways to stay productive while taking a break, and they can fit any mood you're in. Check out some of my ideas below!

Let's get physical

Getting your blood pumping will not only leave you feeling rejuvenated, but it's also beneficial to your health. Sitting around for hours on end isn't that great for you (shocker!), so even a quick five minutes that you walk to refill your water bottle is helpful.

If you really can't focus, take a longer break away from your textbooks. Take out the trash, walk your dog, or check your mail.

Power nap

Give yourself 25-30 minutes to take a quick nap for a longer study break. Once your alarm goes off, make sure you don't fall back to sleep; any longer than half an hour will lead to REM sleep, which will leave you feeling groggy.

Keep it clean

If you're anything like me, I tend to lay out all of my studying materials around me so I can see them all at once. However, that can become overwhelming. Spend some of your time tidying up around you so you can feel like your space is under your control.

Hold yourself accountable

Even if you're just sitting back and looking at your phone, set a timer to make sure you get back to work. It's easy to get sucked into relaxing, but, if you need to study, make sure you keep studying!

Keep the stress away

Sometimes it feels as if the world is on your shoulders while studying. Take a longer break, have a healthy snack, and watch one episode of a funny TV show to take your mind off everything.
