A long break;
1. As what I've discussed before with my friends, we will reach time when we don't have time for the blog. It is also because we can't find something to put in.
2. Break is important. (We also use break in java programming)
3. My research found that many people forgot to put break in their schedule. Enough break is as important as enough study. Break keeps the momentum and consistency of works. It also processes the previous activities. That's why it's very important to take a nap in the afternoon. About 20 minutes is enough.
4. Now, what would you do when you found your previous result is bad? The answer is balance your break time and study time. Make a choice. Manage your study effectively with the this equilibrium.
5. Sleep is the best rest. There are no other medicine for sleepy other than sleep. Most of us think of sleep as a time of rest -- a time when the brain relaxes, and becomes quiet. Actually, when we're sleeping, our brain is continuing to learn the material you've been exposed to during the day.
8. The amazing truth is that learning continues after the actual studying is done. In fact, research indicates the maximum benefit of all your hard hours of studying comes about only after a good night’s sleep. (Walker MP, Brakefield T, Hobson JA, 616-620).
9. Furthermore, even though you may have stopped studying, knowledge and skills continue to improve over several nights of sleep. Although sleep on the first night following training offers the most dramatic benefit, subsequent nights of sleep continue to provide smaller, less pronounced gains. (Walker MP, Brakefield T, Hobson JA, 616-620).
10. You can applicate many thing based on all these theories. After I do some more research on this, I'll post in the future.
