Taking a Break (Part 2)

5. Head out for a short day trip 

Revision is always important before exams, but everyone deserves a break, and a short day to Dundee or Edinburgh is just the thing to take your mind off of schedules and study materials for a bit. Check out our list of suggestions for things to do in Edinburgh on a weekend trip if you’re feeling stuck!

6. Baking 

For a lot of people, baking can be a soothing and relaxing activity. Revision week could be the perfect time to try out a new recipe in between making flash cards, and you’ll have some great treats to snack on while you’re studying. It’s a win-win.

7. Exercise or head to the gym 

Of course, it’s tempting to stay in your room or at the library all week during revision week to try and get as much studying done as possible, but it’s also important to take care of our bodies during times of high stress. Going to the gym for a short workout or heading out for a run would be a good activity to break up your studying routine, and also helps with keeping your energy up. 

8. Do something creative

When I’m feeling completely done with studying, putting work aside and working on something creative like poetry, really helps me clear my head and acts as a nice reward. Whether your creative thing is drawing or singing or writing, feel free to indulge in it more this week as a way of taking a break. 

Good luck with revision, and have a good revision week (or as good as it can get)!
