Weekend

TGIF! This week has been hectic, to be honest. I had my first midterm this morning and have one two three more to study for! I’ve got my espresso machine ready to go for a quick pick-me-up, and my fluffy pillow ready for when I need to take a nap. As much as studying is important, it is also equally important to take breaks when you’re hitting the mental wall. Here are four things I do when taking a break from studying:

BAKE

Joy the Baker has some seriously good recipes, and since October is right around the corner, I’m going to attempt to make these Pumpkin Pie Bars.

RUN / EXERCISE

There are a ton of great, free workout videos on YouTube, but sometimes I feel like running is a good way to clear my head of any frustration I get from studying.

WORK IN THE GARDEN

While pulling weeds and watering the lawn may seem dull and mundane, I find it really relaxing and therapeutic.

READ A BOOK

I am a total bookworm. At the moment I’m reading Persuasion by Jane Austen and so far I’m enjoying it. I like to read a book when I’ve got a lot on my mind because I feel like it temporarily distracts me form whatever is stressing me out at the time. Do you have any books to recommend?

Are there a few ways you de-stress or take a break from studying. I’d love to know!
