Revision: Things to Do During Study Breaks

To finally continue my revision series on here, I thought I would pull a page that I made in my bullet journal a while back, about some ideas to do during revision breaks. Usually I'll be revising and think to myself 'ooh I should take a break' but then not actually know what to do in it.

  • Go for a walk. Apparently fresh air is good, and sometimes a room can just get too stifling.
  • Read a book. For some ideas on books that I've wanted to read this year, look here; for Klara's favourite books look here, and I should be making a list of some trashy books to read when you don't want to have to think.
  • Watch some tv. Recent highlights for me have been Riverdale and The Good Wife
  • Make a Spotify playlist. Revisit the 2000s, or trance, or even just document some of your all-time favourites, and this is something I definitely enjoy doing, and even looking back on my 2015 and 2016 playlists.
  • Write
  • Buy something online. Maybe not something to do all of the time, or you'll end up with no money and blame me, but it can be quite therapeutic even to just browse. I think the same theme can be applied to Pinterest if you do that, which I personally don't.
  • Drink tea <3
  • Take a 20 minute nap. Sleep is such a nice thing, and you'll wake up feeling nice and refreshed after 20 minutes, as it's not too long, and not too short.
  • Play the ukulele, guitar, harpsichord or whatever musical instrument you play.
  • Take a bath
  • Colour. There are so many colouring books made for people over the age of 7, and there are loads of apps as well, as there's been a recent trend in adults colouring, as it is both therapeutic and pretty.
  • Bullet journal or organise. You'll feel more in control of your life, and at some point I'll document my bullet journal process, but if you look at the many many beautiful blogs out there, you can get an idea of some themes.
  • Call a friend. Usually I'll call my friend Francesca, which is lovely, as she unfortunately lives quite far away, but we have the best chats.
  • Tidy up. Same effect as the organising, but it also gets you moving.
  • Plan for the summer: think of all of the fun things you're going to do once exams are over!
  • Catch up on the world, scroll blindly through Facebook and text everyone you know.
