With all the deadlines, studying, planning, and decisions that occur on the road to becoming a doctor, it is easy to get overwhelmed. In order to be at your best, it is important to take breaks and rest your brain. While, in theory, more hours of studying will help you be more prepared, hours and hours on end with no breaks will not be constructive. Take time in between intense study sessions to do something you love. For me, a chai tea latte and a movie does the trick. Whether, it’s going shopping, hanging out with friends, or even a quick walk, taking time to enjoy a “spoonful of sugar” will be beneficial in the long run. However, don’t tell your biology teacher that instead of studying you watched a movie because you read online that you should. Just like with anything else, moderation is key.
