Howdy CFA candidates! How are studies coming along? I'm sure you're doing your best, but I'm worried about your wellbeing, especially if you start to use up all your superpower in one go andburn out right before the exams. That was what happened to me for Level 3 which almost went catastrophic.
Now is the time to amp up a consistent routine of sleeping enough, waking up early (practice for the exam day!), nurturing your (poor) brain with great food and taking good care of yourself. That said, I find the constant routine of sitting down for roughly 12 hours stretch on weekends (I don't study weekdays) extremely difficult at times. Heck, I already do that on weekdays! Although it's stretching it to call it an exercise (stretchercise?), here's my 5 minute routine that I do every hour during my study break. I find that it improves my focus and relieves all the aching body parts caused by marrying my bum to a chair for these gruelling exams.
So come on people, take a 5 minute break and do this with me now! Let's get moving a little :)
