So, we’ve had nearly three weeks back. Enough time to have gotten into a routine, to know your profs well enough, see what your schedule is going to look like, and yet not too much time has passed that you should be stressing! Today, as promised, I’d like to share some of my favourite online “study break” resources:
http://stranglingmymuse.wordpress.com/2012/09/13/19-fun-online-creative-breaks/ (My personal favourite from this list is “Draw a Stickman” in which you get to draw your story and draw his/her adventure. I’m not doing it justice. Check it out.) There is also sand art, word generators, and lots more. Definitely something for everyone to have a bit of fun.
And while this next one isn’t a study break tool, it is something that may help you take, well, fewer extended study breaks…! LeechBlock is a nifty tool for Firefox and you can enter which websites you want blocked, on what days of the week, at which times, and for how long you are (or are not) allowed access to those sites. Just what I need! Try it out if you have focus issues like me!
And my absolute favourite, de-stressing, feel-good, can’t-help-but-smile study break:
Hope those are a few things you can find useful, and by all means, if you’ve found others, let me know!
