Let’s be honest – after a couple hours straight, studying sucks. It could be some of the most interesting content in the world, however continually attempting to pound it into your brain becomes exhausting very quickly.
So, outside of catching up on sleep at 2 in the afternoon, what’s a good way to take a break from studying while still being productive?
There are lots of things you could do! You could clean, go workout, or something else to get your mind off of your studies. However, I have found during this exam period that a great way to take a break while still keeping your mind in it is by finding a film, usually a documentary, related to what you’re studying!
