Law School Hints and News

To Succeed in Law School Consider Taking Breaks Outside

Law school is a stressful, trying process. It requires you to spend hours attending classes, planning, writing, and scheduling numerous pulls on your time. The constant tension of law school can take its toll on even the most dedicated of students and can lead to anxiety, sleepless nights, and layers of personal and professional stress.

Sometimes, taking a step away from things, in both a literal and figurative sense, is the best thing to do. Health professionals recommend that people take occasional breaks from their daily routines and visit nature in one form or another. Just taking a walk outside and getting sunlight has been shown to improve the health and mood of individuals. With all the great beaches and nature parks in Florida, you should take a little time away from the demands of law school and enjoy some time outdoors. Please do not forget your sunglasses, sunscreen, and water when you go!
