Need a study break?

Reset and refresh with these study break tips

Exams can place a lot of stress on our bodies, especially the HSC.

Here’s 5 simple study break tips to help relieve tension, improve your state of mind and keep you feeling fresh.

  1. Aromatherapy in your pocket

    Essential oils have an amazing power to calm, clarify and energise.  Try placing a couple of drops of essentials on a handkerchief to keep handy whilst studying, and pull out whenever you need a little aromatherapeutic boost.

    • For focus – try Rosemary (3 drops), Lemon (2 drops)  and Basil (1 drop)
    • For calming – try Lavender (3 drops), German Chamomile (2 drops) and Neroli (3 drops) – You can also place this one next to your pillow to help sleep.
    • For energy – try Eucalyptus (2 drops) , Peppermint (2 drops) and Lemon (2 drops)
  2. Have a relaxing soak in the tub

    A  soak in the tub with 1-2 cups of epsom salts dissolved in the water is a great way to relieve muscular tension. Light a candle, turn on some chill-out tunes and relax. If you find having a bath too close to bedtime overstimulating, try having a bath break in the middle of the day.

  3. Drink plenty of water

    It’s really hard to concentrate when your nervous system, including your brain, is dehydrated. Keep a bottle of water handy whilst studying and drink frequently. Plenty of water in your system does increase your toilet breaks, but these also give you a chance to stretch and reset your muscles.

  4. Multi-task; apply a masque

    Stress can play havoc with our skin. Aside from maintaining a good daily skincare regime, take advantage of time spent at home by applying a masque when studying to give your skin an added hydrating/refining/brightening boost.

  5. Book in for a massage

    Aches and pains from maintaining the same (poor) posture for long periods of time can lead to poor concentration and sleep. Reward yourself for studying well by booking a massage  – we have some amazing remedial and relaxation massage therapists at Omorfia, who excel at releasing tension from tight muscles.
