Exercise has a lot of mental health benefits, which helps to improve concentration and focus In studying. Some student never put exercising into consideration which affects their level of concentration and focuses.
Whenever you are studying endeavour to have a little break in between your study, either going for a little walk or just anything that will work out for you at that period of time and remember to exercise because exercising helps in improving the brain capacity to learn and retain information.
