    Most of the time, I grab myself a coffee or two for the caffeine.
    Sometimes I make myself a fried egg sandwich for brain food.

    Sometimes I take my clothes off because I feel more natural in my naked state.

    Recently Ive been drinking a couple glasses of wine to get me in the zone.


    Go.

    My "magic formula" at uni was based on the following 3 things:

    - Music is essential

    - Never revise on an empty stomach

    - Eat lots of brain food (fish, sources of flavonoids, etc).

    It worked a treat

    Maybe get distracted spinning on my spinny chair for good luck

    I think to myself:
    Will the future me, immediately after the revision, thank current me for doing this?
    And then:
    Will future me, immediately after the exams, thank current me for doing this?

    The answer is always yes.

    I try not to think about the processes of doing revision before I do it, or what I could be doing, I just pick up pen book and paper and do things.
    And before you know it you've done too much revision.

    I take my nootropic and just let it do the work
    Also, I like to hit the gym for some light exercise before intense periods of revision

    Same here, I always ask myself after exams was revision worth it, only once has the answer been no.

    Easy, 5 steps is all you need:

    - Sit at desk
    - Look at Coursework
    - Realize your crushing defeat
    - Cry like a women without Ice Cream
    - Come back at last minute panicking and fart out pages likes a bunny on rocket fuel.
