On every piece of revision advice ever, you are advised to TAKE A BREAK. But sometimes when I take a break, I end up getting hooked into my break and I never come out of it :laugh:

Today I've found an effective way to spend my break, since I'm weirdly motivated today. I'm eating grapes, writing this post and listening to this PCR song:

What do you during your revision breaks?

Go to Dubai to get a snack and watch the dancing foundations then come back, just in time.

I wish I could do that! I get really horrible migraines from eye strain after a certain amount of concentration (even when wearing my glasses) so I have to give my eyes a rest during my breaks

I see! - I get eye strain sitting at a computer, even though I have anti-glare on my glasses so I feel your struggle
Food always helps me during breaks

Normally I just go to the shop below the library and buy a drink. If I'm at home I just take two breaks which are lunch and then going to the gym.

Maybe set a timer during your breaks so you don't run over? That's what I do.
I read, listen to music, climb a tree in the garden or play computer games.

Have you considered fitting a different pair for up close and distance?
I know optometrists don't usually do it for teens but when I was at school I used to have that problem with reading for a long time. Without glasses I was out of focus (astigmatism issues), with glasses I felt a lot of strain and it seems like the lenses are way too strong. It was solved when I was fitted a different pair for reading (well, it was after school, but it was good and helped me a lot during university).

Have you considered blue-light filter or blue light blocking eyeglasses... and as the answer above, different pair?

Food is great... I felt in love with this the last year of university. It was easier to study when having a snack. It is something psychological, sometimes when you have a snack while studying you stop thinking you are studying and feel good about having the snack so it makes it easier and less noticeable... hope it makes sense.

My glasses are only for close up things like reading, going on the computer, etc
