I want to know the details regarding taking (short) breaks in the context of studying or research. So, I read an article titled The Science of Taking a Break. This question is focused on the aspect of what to do while break time.
The article divides breaks into two classes: effective breaks and ineffective breaks.
Routines for ineffective breaks:
- Engagement in social media platforms;
- Calling or texting friends;
- Watching television.
Routines for effective breaks:
- Taking naps;
- Old fashioned exercise.
I am interested in knowing more routines for taking effective breaks in academic study or research.
What are the other recommended routines for taking an effective break?
