Mind numbingly bored of revision

Final year student here. Study Psychology (technically mature but only 24).

Any other MNers who have tips on what to do during revision breaks to keep myself from slowly going insane. Something I can do in 15 minutes between 1 hour sessions of revising.

I am genuinely bored absolutely shitless and haven't ever struggled with this before (must be something to do with it being my last ever exams that my motivation has just nosedived)

I just finished redoing two papers and found it really hard. I would put on some music and dance, what's a favorite YouTube channel and on the day before they were due I ordered some really delicious smoothies and dessert and a wrap from just eats. It kept me going. Usually I ordered Pizza whenever something is too but dominoes place has no nutella smoothies. smile

hello just did a dash to the supermarket and watched a bit of crap TV for a break! Finals have always been more of a chore with motivation being harder to summon after a whole academic year but this time it's at an all time low! Just got to think only 3 exams left grin

I totally understand. I had to do one paper on law and one on business and several parts of research just seemed so alien to me. I'm studying international trade and I love it, but math is not my strong point and interest rates, commodity prices in GDP really made my head spin. Do you have anything nice planned for the summer at least?

I would love to work in the café. Do you meet all kinds of people there?

I run a small charity so have my hands full. I have one year left of my degree and I just hope that I can do well. I barely slept this week and woke up with a huge migraine this morning.

The city break sounds nice right now, but I'm too tired to go anywhere. I have a summer course beginning soon.

Stop trying to revise in one hour sessions. Your brain works in 20 minute bites. Try 20 mins on, 5 mins off. During your five minutes, leave your desk, walk around, drink water.
