Hey friends! 

This week I've been busy writing a number of legal guides for the website - they're designed to help you with every aspect of your studies and becoming a lawyer. 

But, the problem is, I've not really taken a break. 

When we're trying to get work done, it’s easy to convince ourselves that there's no time for breaks. Pushing through and staying in front of our laptop may in fact give us the illusion of productivity. 

However, we all know deep down that this is unhealthy. The reality is, detaching from work helps maintain our energy levels and decreases the risk for exhaustion. 

So, this week I'm going to try break up my day and incorporate some of the following 'break types' into my routine. I'd suggest you give it a go too and let me know how you find it. 
  1. Movement breaks. Get up and move your body. If you have time, go for a walk.
  2. Mental breaks. Do a short meditation or deep breathing session. Or just let your mind wander.
  3. Social breaks. Schedule some social breaks with a colleague or a friend.
  4. Nature breaks. Go outside to get some sunlight. If there’s a park nearby, even better.
  5. Creative breaks. Draw, doodle, listen to some music. 
Simply choose whatever breaks you find most beneficial for your productivity, creativity, and mental health  And then actually schedule them into your work day. I promise you'll feel so much better.

Enjoy your week!

The Half-Life of Facts

Facts change all the time. Smoking has gone from doctor recommended to deadly. We used to think the Earth was the center of the universe and that Pluto was a planet. For decades we were convinced that the brontosaurus was a real dinosaur.
