Sometimes, you feel as if you’re in a studying rut and can’t learn anything else. A great tip is to get up and get moving. With the cold and wet autumn weather, it can sometimes be hard to go to the gym. Instead, try yoga! Taking even a 5 minute break for some downward dog and cat cow poses will help your blood circulate and ease the stress from studying. Check out some cute yoga mats like this one!

5. Remind yourself that you’re human
Listen to a motivational song that you know can lift you up even if you’re feeling a bit blue! Marina and the Diamonds’s “I Am Not a Robot” is perfect for this situation. The lyrics remind you that it’s okay not to be perfect and that it’s natural to make mistakes!
