I’ve tried giving myself little 30 minute breaks, but that often turns into 45 minute breaks, and then multiple hour long breaks. I can’t just disengage my brain and do something like sit and watch TV, but I need to keep my brain engaged in something and often I can’t pull myself away from that. I love being able to hyperfocus on programming/computer stuff, but it’s hard when a grade is on the line.

I will check out the article and see if it can help. Thanks for the advice!
