How to relax and not spend ALL of your life studying

How to relax and not spend ALL of your life studying!

Are you spending too much time on your studies? Are you so busy in gathering knowledge that you are missing out living life itself? If it is so, maybe it’s time to take a break and relax. I think studying books might quench your curiosities, give you valuable knowledge and help you build a marvelous career or make you famous, but what is the point if it is stealing away this very moment of your life? Here are a few tips on how you can relax and not spend ALL of your life studying:

1.    Reflect on life
Books might make you intelligent and successful but only reflection can make you wise. We often want to go too far in life that we forget to check where we are actually heading. While studying can take you to a far distance, only reflection can make sure whether the direction is right or wrong. Therefore, take some time out of your mundane student life and see what is actually going on in your life. This will open up an opportunity to make any required change, revision and improvements for sure.

2.    Be a student of life
I believe that there is no barrier for people who want to learn and explore. One doesn’t necessarily have to be a student of an institution in order to learn something. Whether you open your eyes to observe the external world or pay attention to your subtle breaths with closed eyes, life is ever ready to teach you something.
3.    Live in the present
A student life can be too stressful trying to digest too much information, chase for good grades and so on. We can never know how nourishing it can be for both academic and non-academic life to actually live in the present moment until we do it.

The above-mentioned tips are from an anxious student who is still learning to keep calm. If you also have tips that you want to share, feel free to post them in the comment section below.
