A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors When I set my study times I allow for downtime. These are 15 minutes when I take a break by daydreaming or meditating, or writing in a journal. Don't take a nap because you might sleep right through your studying. A good idea is to do some light physical exrcise. This gets your mind and body ready to go back to studying.
