Well, we are here to tell you that taking a break in revision is just as important as the revision itself.

A recent Study from Princeton University suggests that some good, old-fashioned exercise is a great alternative to hopping online during study breaks. While the brain produces the same amount of neurons regardless of physical activity, researchers found that people who exercise form more neurons that emit a neurotransmitter known as GABA, which has been proven to calm the brain and reduce overall anxiety. The study’s leader, Dr. Holly Phillips, told CBS Morning News that GABA also has long-lasting effects. “Even 24 hours after exercise, you’re less prone to experience anxiety symptoms,” she explained, adding that 30 minutes of exercise, four times a week, is sufficient for significantly reducing most people’s stress.
