Study Breaks

I am a strong believer in the study break. As the weather gets more gorgeous and my exams get closer, I think I would end up hating life if I didn’t make time to get outside and enjoy it. Some people prefer to power through the exam season in the library but that’s just not my style. So here’s a run down of my fave ways to enjoy a break from revision.

Tea at the V and A seems like something that you would only do as a tourist or when your parents come to visit but this amazing, beautiful museum is literally next door to us so I think it makes a great break from revision to have a little wander and enjoy a delicious cup of tea in the café.

Dinner with friends is one of my favourite things to do anyway but during exams it’s even better. You all have to eat so why not eat together? That way you can make time to see your buddies without taking too much time out of your day.

The pub. Again, you have to stop revising at some point in the evening so why not hit the pub for a pint? (Or rosé and dessert if you are as cool as me)

Going for walks. Probably my favourite revision break is to just walk around. I recently discovered that I live much closer to the Thames than I thought I did so the other day I walked along the river with a friend and we had a mini adventure to Fulham Palace. The palace itself was more of a stately home (and wasn’t massively interesting) but the gardens were amazing. Definitely need to go back.

Just get outside in general. Have lunch on Queens Lawn instead of in the computer room. You won’t regret it.
