Law School Hints and News

Consolidate Smaller Tasks into a Single Time Slot to Enhance Your Efforts

During law school, health and life-maintaining activities can get set aside to address pressures such as reading for class, studying, and pursuing internships and job leads. While it is good to give important projects the time they need, you should take time to accomplish the tasks needed to maintain your well-being.

You can do a lot in five minutes to improve your quality of life. You can work out. You can breathe and meditate to reduce stress. You can even make microwave meals in a mug. While taking five minutes for life maintaining tasks is great, setting aside a set time in your schedule to bundle together smaller tasks into a concentrated effort has been found to have several positive effects. By deliberately accomplishing a series of smaller tasks, you can enter a state of flow, knock several items off your to-do list, and clean up your mental and physical spaces from the clutter that can unconsciously distract you.
