How To Stay Sane in Law School
Kel Friday, October 02, 2015
Despite having seriously cut back on fun reading *sobs,* I haven't gone crazy yet! I think the trick has been to have a few constants -- that is, have a few consistent distractions to break up the never ending studying. ;)
Pretzels: my go-to commuting snack.
Audiobooks: I'm almost done The Book Thief, and it's made many a traffic jam feel, if not shorter, not quite as long. And it's a great way to put those two hours of driving per day to productive use.
Book books: I started Nice Dragons Finish Last on audio and finished it in ebook, but either way, it was nice to be interested in and speed through a story again. I'm sorry, textbooks. You cannot compare.
Webcomics: Novels are great, but they require a certain time commitment I don't always have. Quick chapter updates from webcomics are easier to fit in and give a small dose of fiction.
Netflix: I can't indulge in this one too often or I'd never get anything done, but it's a brilliant change of pace when you need some hardcore couch potato-ing.
Caffeine: I actually haven't dived into this one as badly as I feared, but at least once a week I need a little pick me up. Usually a soda, or an iced tea, and I'm slowly giving coffee a shot again. Trying to stay away from the espresso though. I'll have to work back up to that one.
Whether you're in school, work or whatever, little breathers can be a big help. ;)
