You’ve been working very hard since day 1! You can be proud of yourself! How are you feeling? Have you ever noticed that when studying for too long without eating or having a break, learning new things becomes harder? If you’re feeling tired or less motivated than usual, then maybe it’s time for you to have a break.
It’s because your brain has too much information to process. You can’t focus anymore; your body is asking for a break.
Listen to your body, go eat something! Don’t overdo it. Slow and steady wins the race, remember?
Take A Deep Breath and A Break
You need motivation to learn efficiently. If you feel forced to learn, you will lose motivation. Whenever you start feeling that way, stop. Breathe deeply. Have a 15-minute break, think about something else, do something different, and then go back to your Chinese learning.
Think about all the good things learning Chinese has brought to you. Look at the progress you made so far, you’ll feel motivated to get back to Ninchanese!
What Can You Do During Small Breaks?
- Listen to music
- Practice Tai Chi Chuan
- Have a walk
- Have a nap
There’re so many other things you can do in 15 minutes! Have some me-time.
Remember, missing Chinese is a good thing. Then you’ll be eager to go back in Ninchanese! 🙂
