DAY 33: PAINFULLY MAKING PROGRESS
Its Day 33 of revision purgatory and I am steadily making my way through memorising and understanding the numerous cases, principles, academic issues and rules relating to Criminal Law, Equity & Trusts, Company Law and Immigration Law!
Its well known that is not always possible or healthy to spend all hours of the day revising and that we need to give ourselves breaks and rest time. Below are a few things that I tend to do when I want a break from analysing the law on homicide!
Exercise is a really good way to keep fit and de-stress! The release of those endorphins are a great help to keep you happy and motivated through the mentally draining time that comes with revision. Plus, with the amount of chocolate that I tend to consume over the revision break (I am not the only one… right?) I think working out is perhaps a necessity more than a good suggestion for me!!
2. WATCHING A FAVOURITE TV EPISODE
For me, the best escape is watching my favourite TV programmes. As most of them run for 45 minutes, I tend to treat myself after each two hour revision session with an episode of Greys Anatomy, Scandal or The Office.
3. GOING ON A DESSERT RUN
As my brother and I are both revising for exams, we like to treat ourselves every once in a while (pretty much every evening) to dessert. Never underestimate the power that a red velvet cake or a Nutella drenched waffle can have in terms of motivating you to really engage with learning about Secret Trusts!
I hope that everyone who is revising for exams in the summer are doing well and keeping focused! The end will be here before we know it…
