As if university life wasn’t stressful enough, we also have an entire pandemic to worry about, rules and regulations to remember, lockdowns, etc. So it’s important now more than ever to remember to take some time every now and then to just relax. Being able to relax is excellent for both our physical and our mental health, as it reduces stress, improves mood, lowers blood pressure and whole bunch of other stuff that is really beneficial for our general wellbeing. Relaxing also has benefits for studying as it can boost memory, confidence and concentration. Taking breaks to relax during studying is a MUST.
