A key thing to realize is that all students must take breaks. Rather than spending a break eating and watching Netflix at your desk for each break, it might be helpful to coordinate breaks with friends and grab some boba or go for a walk while you regroup your thoughts before going back to study. For these breaks it’s important to set time limits and make those known to the people you are with to stay accountable. A common problem that occurs with study breaks is that they can turn into procrastination quickly, but when we tell other people that “I will go back to ____ to study in ____minutes” it becomes harder to justify to yourself and your friends when you procrastinate (a good tip for studying in general actually).
