2. Take the right amount of breaks.

I will tell you two approaches for this, here is the 1st one:

  • You can decide and customize the breaks you take according to how you study.
  • You can study and divide your time in blocks of say, an hour or 45 minutes.
  • After each of these blocks, take a break.

And, the 2nd approach would be this:

  • First set goals for yourself in terms of chapters, or topics, or number of questions to be answered.
  • Once you reach that goal, you can take a break.
  • Take these few minutes of the break to stretch your feet and to refresh yourself.

It is only natural for high school students to think about the future, especially those high school students that are appearing for an exam as competitive as the JEE mains.

If the quality of your study time is independent of where you study, always try to change the surroundings you study in. You may not just want a change, but you may even need the change.

It is important for you to break anything that may seed continuous boredom as that is the one way ticket to depression.

Don’t let studies overshadow your hobbies and extra – curricular activities. Since your study time is yours to personalize, you can break the time in 2 – 5 hour slots and go running in the evening or play your favorite sport, if that’s your thing.

5. Use different ways of studying.

If you know how you study and what works for you well, you can do wonders with this knowledge.
