4. Take breaks and talk to someone:

Leave the place where you are studying in order to re-energize. Take your dog for a walk or go alone and spend time in nature for a little while to relax your mind. Meet a friend for a quick cup of coffee to chat for half an hour about something other than your big exam or paper that is due, or go see a movie together.

Never procrastinate, keeping a diary and writing to-do lists each day will keep you super prepared and on track to getting everything done – and on time. Working out a daily routine and sticking to it is also good for the soul, as you’ll feel a lot more in control of how your day pans out.
