Here are some strategies you can use to stay healthy and remember more even when you have a lot of studying to do:

  • Take movement breaks while you are studying- at right are some links to videos with short movement/exercise breaks.
  • While memorizing, reading or reviewing for a test, engage in light exercise, such as standing, walking, yoga, riding on a stationary bike or Pilates.
  • Design your study area to integrate movement while studying. Standing desks and desks that move from seated to standing are gaining popularity.
