Taking meaningful breaks
We repeat this so often, but that’s because it’s really, really important to remember – regular breaks help you study better! Time away from your work helps with information retention and improves your ability to focus, whereas not taking breaks leads to decision fatigue, decreased ability to solve problems, and strain to your eyes, back and the rest of the body.
Whether you need a free snack and a cuppa (snacks are the best thing about studying, this is the hill we’ll die on!), a creative break or a bit of exercise, Study Happy has something for everyone. Collaborations we have with Warwick Sports, Arts Centre and other colleagues, mean that you don’t even have to leave the library. Check our website or Facebook page to see what’s on every week!
Building your community
The campus is bustling with activity during the term, but it can also get overwhelming at times. When you suddenly find yourself miles and miles away from your family, friends and other people close to you, it’s not unusual to feel lonely, even if you are in a middle of the crowd.
In designing Study Happy events, we try to create opportunities for you to meet other students and staff at the university. It’s such a nice feeling to connect with others over your shared student experience or common interests. Try coming along to “Library Language Exchange” our Friday afternoon sessions.
