what to do during gaps between studies?

not music or mobile or socializing things . please suggest calm and normal.
Hiya 🙂

I love this question! It is immensely satisfying that more and more students engage in mindful studying. It really has positive effects on our well-being and academic performance.

I have an excellent idea for you, which I have implemented in my routine recently (and it is gorgeous!). Engage in a relaxation technique. Personally, I love the Jacobson Relaxation Technique. You can find longer and shorter versions on YouTube. It has been a game-changer for me. All tension disappears, and I am deeply relaxed afterwards. As rest is a key to staying focused and motivated, it works exceptionally well when implemented into study breaks.

I hope it was helpful 😉 If you decide to try the relaxation technique, do let me know how it will go! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions 🙂 You can also chat with me or other students directly through The Ambassador Platform.

Take care,

Hi there,

Something that has been working for me is taking short 'power naps'. Although most of the time I don't actually fall asleep, I use those minutes almost like meditation where I let my mind wonder. It can be really relaxing at times and you get back into it fully energised.
