It is exam time!  Sometimes we get caught up studying and we forget that our brains need time to process.  Time Out is a great app that reminds you to stop and take a break on your computer or device.  You can set an easy timer for any amount of work time and break time.  It forces you to stop and take a much needed break from your processing.  During that time I would recommend some physical activity or even take a nap.  “Napping for 10-30 minutes has been demonstrated to increase alertness and improve performance.” – Hallie Smith, Scientific Learning  So, remember to stop and take a break using Time Out to get the most out of your study time.
