when you’re studying non-stop, working really hard… but eventually, you start
feeling less productive? I’ve come to realize that in such cases it’s good,
even necessary to take a study break. So here’s how to master them!
minutes: just enough time for you to relax a little, but not so much that you
fall completely out of your game.
this totally depends on what you’re studying, how hard it is etc, but normally
I’ll take a study break every hour and a half.
What do you
do during them?
Go to the
bathroom. Wash your face, remove your makeup, go to the toilet if you need to.
food & water. Sometimes, studying can make you hungry, and water’s always
good to have around. I’d tell you to opt for
something healthy when it comes to food, but more often than not I’ll choose to
eat Oreos, biscuits or some other sweets.
Take a nap. This is perhaps the most straightforward one; just lie down for a few minutes. Make sure you’ve set an alarm clock though, or else you will oversleep. Trust me; it’s happened before.
your study space. I have quite a big desk, but sometimes it can feel like the
random items of stationery, pieces of paper, textbooks and other random crap is
just taking over everything. I swear, it really helps if you clean up the
things around you!
Go online. I’m a little reluctant to recommend this because I know how hard it is to stop afterwards, but if you consciously limit yourself and know that you’ll stop after 15-20 minutes, then watching a few YouTube videos, going on tumblr or talking to friends of Facebook can be a great way to relax.
yourself a tea. Or coffee – but personally I’m more of a tea person during
studying. I’ll make myself a nice cup of black tea with lemon and sugar, and afterwards,
everything just goes better.
episode of a TV show/anime. These are slightly longer, but are a great way to
take your mind off whatever you’re studying. I’d recommend watching something
which is short (ie. not a full, hour-long episode of Game of Thrones) – like Friends,
HIMYM or Family Guy. These are great because the shows are pretty episodic, you
won’t feel inclined to keep watching more and more. As for anime, don’t pick one
where you know you won’t be able to stop after one episode. Instead, I’d
recommend something like Hetalia (hilarious; also great if you’re studying Geo
or History), Gintama (pure gold),
Samurai Champloo (the perfect combination of fun and deep).
there you have it: the art of taking a study break. Good luck, everyone!
- None of the gang have two living parents who are together, but:
a) Barney was raised by a single mother
b) At the start of her life, Lily was raised by a stay-at-home dad
c) Ted’s mother happily remarried
- Barney canonically loves rabbits (he has bonded with two separate rabbits in S6E05 and S8E13)
- Lily is openly interested in women and none of them (not even Marshall) object
- James and Tom worked through their issues and raised two amazing, adopted kids
- Lily kept her last name when she married Marshall
- The Captain got a happy ending with Becky aka Boats Boats Boats (and he also resolved the pineapple mystery in a deleted scene)
- Ranjit is the only recurring character to appear in every season, and he got a happy ending
- Every member of the gang met Tracy (the mother) before Ted
- Tracy was allowed time to grieve and nobody told her she had to start dating if she didn’t want to
Look, we’ve all been searching for the five doppelgängers, right? But eventually, over time, we all become our own doppelgängers. You know, these completely different people who just happen to look like us.
I love how in B99 the main character is what it seems & looks like will go on the one in a stable relationship. I mean usually the main character has tons of messy relationships and goes back & forth to his endgame (like Friends & HIMYM which are my favs but B99 also being new and "woke" has me awake and realize those 2 are kinda shitty). Also, there's no flirty character — most shows and comedy films has this one guy who fucks everyone and shit and literally no one is like that with them
I mean correct me if I’m wrong but I’m pretty sure before Charles met Genevieve he was “a stage 5 player, just mowing down chicks left and right.”
