How long do you believe is best to work for before having a break, and how long should the break be? I understand it’s different for everyone but what do you guys do? Thanks.

I work for an hour and have a half an hour break normally. However like today I worked for an hour and a half before having only a 10 minute break. Later in the day I could only work 20 minutes before taking an hour break. Depends how you're feeling.

Heyy I use the pomodoro technique with an app called focus keeper (which works wonders for me at least), so I work for 25 mins before having a five minute break. I do that 4 times in a row, then have a 25 minute break. Usually I'll do 3-4 cycles of that a day, so 5-6ish hours in total. I used to really struggle with revision but something about this really works for me, and I know it does for others too
