- Go for a run. Exercise is good for the brain and will only help your academic performance, or at least that’s what you can tell your mum when she questions why you’re not in the library. If you happen to jog past the pub on the way home then no doubt you will be in need of some hydration.
- Find a friend with a crisis. It’s never nice to see your friends upset or with a problem, but offering them a cup of tea, a shoulder to cry on and your best pearls of wisdom will make them feel better and fill at least 2 hours.
- Discover a keen interest in cooking. The brain needs energy to function and those ten thousand words aren’t going to write themselves. Luckily you’ve found a great recipe for a nutritionally balanced meal that will give you the sustenance you need to find your inner scholar – it’s just a shame that the cooking time is 2 hours!
- Clean your room. Nobody will produce their best work in a messy environment and the inches of dust that have gathered during your work induced cleaning break could lead to illness; no one wants to be unwell with a deadline looming. Whack out the marigolds and your favourite Spotify playlist and get cleaning, time really does fly when you’re singing and hoovering at the same time.
- Organise your notes. Optimising your resources will improve your efficiency and help you write a top-notch dissertation. Make the most of those highlighters and fineliners you treasured during A-Level revision and spruce those notes, a sure fire way to look like you have your shit together.
