Take a break!

Taking regular breaks from work helps in studying in many ways. With breaks, your ability to concentrate improves and you can cope better with the study day. When you plan and stick to your daily breaks, you’ll learn time management and exercise your stress tolerance.

Take a break from your studies with the Pomodoro technique! The optimal working time for concentration is 25 minutes, followed by a 5-minute break. After four work sessions, a longer break is taken, for example 30 minutes. Try Pomodoro at LUC Well-being Services’ Study Retreat under guidance or try it by yourself in Pomofocus.

Quick tips:

  • Take microbreaks! Rotate your shoulders a few times or otherwise correct your posture.
  • Get up to drink a glass of water.
  • Look away from your computer screen, look out the window, and look as far away as possible. This will also give your eyes rest during the day.

In addition, you can try, for example, these short break exercises while working:
