What should I do during my study break?

Updated: Aug 11, 2022

Hello, students of Math Lobby! We know that you have been working hard doing revisions, completing your assignments, spending time to read the articles of different genres on Math Lobby to seek out the best tips and advices for yourself.

Although the effort is really commendable, but how long can you last in this race? Many students tend to be motivated to study but only for a short period of time, and cannot see themselves doing it in the long run as it is extremely exhausting.

This is often caused by the lack of recharging when they study on a daily basis. This means that the repetitiveness of the studying routine every single day has become so mundane, that the teen-aged which are really active in nature finds it unbearable.

Hence, it is important to incorporate breaks in between your studying sessions to ensure that you do not burn out before you reach the last leg of the race: the examination period.

Why are study breaks important?

The significance of study breaks is really important, and have many unrealized benefits that students do not know about. Taking breaks can positively affect a student’s attention abilities, since it is equivalent to like a “re-focus” button after spending hours at the study desk.

It can also help to reduce significant amount of stress, since you temporarily take your mind off the job and allow it to rest.

Retain information better

One of the most important factor that you should know as a student regarding study breaks is that it can help you to retain information better, meaning that instead of forcing yourself to memorize and cramp a thousand and one things into your brain the night before the examination, it is better if you have a meticulously thought out and well-devised study plan for the long run, with the inclusion of study breaks that you deem to be sufficient for yourself.

If you are new or still currently unaware, Math Lobby offers a number of articles you can read up, which includes tips and advices on how to deal with stress, how to improve your concentration and productivity levels when you are studying, and the activities you should and should not do when taking interval study breaks during your revisions. You can check them all out on the “Free Study Resources” tab on the website!

Of course, students must only take breaks that they deem adequate for themselves, and not whenever they want to. If a break is taken to indulge in recreational activities, it is advisable for them to only engage in those activities AFTER they are done with studying for the day, and only proceed if it does not compromise their energy for the subsequent day of school.

Allows you to refocus

With that said, it means that students must also be able to factor in sufficient sleep and rest times in their schedules to avoid being lethargic and have a lack of focus during classes. The result of poor planning and taking too many breaks will cause students to enter a complacent state, which tends to be more prone to procrastination and lack the motivation to get back on track.

And that’s all for today, students! Math Lobby hopes that after reading through this article, you have gained valuable insights on the importance of taking breaks in between studying sessions!
