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

Fudge/dried fruit as "incentives"

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.
