Find a Hobby

Don't forget to carve out time for a hobby unrelated to academics. Hobbies are a great way to relieve stress and let your mind take a break from studies.

Take Breaks

Although it seems counterproductive, study breaks allow your brain and body to rest and regain your ability to focus. During your breaks you can:

♦ Go on a walk

♦ Grab a snack to eat

♦ Meditate

♦ Take a short nap

♦ Do something creative

Check out Student Health Services for more mindfulness activities.
