Virtual Study Break

Staying up late studying? Performing last-minute research? Then, it’s time for a study break! Taking breaks can help reduce stress and improve your ability to focus on a task.

Visit the Virtual Study Break Canvas site for a collection of stress-relieving activities from Penn Libraries leading up to and during Reading Days and Finals. Activities include games, puzzles, coloring, and more! Discover free in-person events hosted by Penn Libraries, such as painting and tea time. There are also resources to help with research, studying, and stress management.

Enjoy some mindful downtime so you can return to studying feeling refreshed, focused, and energized. Whether you have been studying for five minutes or five hours, Penn Libraries has you covered.
