The best study tip: take a break and meditate!

As this article reports, new research coming out of Massachusetts General Hospital may prove that regular mindfulness meditation not only helps you to relax and keeps your stress at bay, but can actually change your brain structure, increasing brain density in areas associated with focus, memory, introspection and self-awareness. The study was conducted over a period of only 8 weeks- plenty of time to get our brains in shape for midterms if we all start meditating on the regular now!
