To push through or not, that is the question.

Postby RobertGolddust » Wed Jan 16, 2013 5:44 pm

I'm looking for some feedback from the kindred minds of TLS. At the point of "burn out,"-which I define as not thinking as clearly as I usually do, with a tint of weariness. Should I take a day or two off? or should I keep pushing on and hope the fog lifts and the scores rise?

And additionally, if I want to give my brain a rest, what is a good activity to fill my time? It is worth noting the previous interrogative sentence presupposes time at the bar or the bawd will not suffice for giving my brain a rest.

Im assuming you're taking the feb lsat; otherwise, it seems extremely early to be burning out now. If you feel like you're spent, then take a day or 2 off. Tanking PTs can happen when you aren't thinking clearly, and those poor scores can do more damage to you at this critical point of your study than a brief breather. Go do mindless things, like watching a movie- anything that will give your mind time to recover.

Definitely take a break. If you are already burned out you might want to take a month long break since you have 10-12 months to take the test.

Give yourself a break. If you are feeling burned out, get out of the house. See the light of day. Eat something lol.

I can't focus if I sit and drill problems for hours on end. I'll give myself a little reward every couple hours or hour or so and I'll have a snack or go outside for a few minutes.
