How do I take time off?

Hi! I have found that taking time off actually ***improves*** the quality of your studies. If you only spend time studying, after a while you are exhausting your ability to retain information or enhancing your thinking and creativity skills.
If you can look at taking a break and doing something fun or stimulating that is not connected to your studies, you will feel refreshed and your study and retention will actually improve!
Also, do some introspection on *why* you feel the need to spend all your time studying. Gaining insight may also help free you to accept that you need more balance in your life.
I hope this helps and that you can have a day (which you have planned out in detail) to enjoy the other aspects of who you are. Making a plan with a friend or two can help b/c you would feel bad backing out on your friend(s). Best of luck!
