For most people, when we sit down to study, our productivity peaks for the first hour and then declines as we get more mentally drained. If you want to optimize your productivity while studying, its important to take regular breaks to rest and replenish your mental energy so that you can return more energized.
An optimal ratio of studying time to break time is 25:5, also known as the pomodoro technique. The pomodoro technique is extremely famous and used by many high performing individuals. Essentially, you study for 25 minutes and then take a 5 minute break, repeating this 30-minute cycle over and over can help optimize your study productivity.
