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.
