Taking Breaks - eBooks

Need a break?

So, that essay you promised yourself you would do straight away three weeks ago is almost due and your first thought is to stay up and pull an all-nighter. But did you know that studying for long hours at a time is more likely to hinder your performance than improve it? If you find yourself in this situation more often than you would like to admit, keep on reading to find out how you can get the best out of your study time.

Breaks are super important because they allow us to stay alert and focused on the task at hand. Think about it, if you’ve been studying for hours all day, not only would you be mentally exhausted but are less likely to concentrate on that all-important essay or exam.
