Listening Getting restless while studying

Does anybody else feel this way? I get too restless while doing questions or reviewing them and that doesn't facilitate learning well. Does anyone else feel this way? If so, what do you do to cop up with the stress and anxiety?

Wink I have had this feeling

this happens to me when I fix a particular time to review questions and I notice that I am a bit slow.

at this point, I forget about the timing , I calm down and just study no more watchful of time.

or watch an episode of a series, take a break and continue but hey be careful you could get carried away and want to watch more episodes. this is where a study partner is needed. someone who can cub your excesses and who you can weigh or compare your progress with.

I loved naruto and when I take my breaks or feeling stressed or worn out I just watch an episode which could turn to 3 - 4 episodes easily if not for regular checks by a partner.

Do not give up on a dream because of how long it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway
