Luckily, the major I'm in (public relations and journalism) isn't nearly as stressful as music education, which was what I was in last year. But there are always those evenings, weekends, or weeks where it feels like you're studying/writing papers nonstop. The way I work best is if I work in 30 minute chunks, taking 10 minute breaks between each chunk, then every 2 or 3 hours, I take a half-hour break. I like my study breaks to not involve screens (TV, computer, etc.) or reading/writing, because that's what my work is based on.
So for short, 10-minute breaks, I have:
1. Listen to music
3. Walk around my dorm building
4. Stretch and do ballet positions
5. Call my parents
6. Clean my room a little
1. Take a shower
2. Eat a meal with friends
3. Take a walk
4. Go for a run
5. Take a nap if I need it
6. Clean room a lot
Any other suggestions? What works for you?
