Why It’s Important to Take Breaks When Writing a Long Paper for College

Writing a long paper for college is often a daunting task for students. The pressure to produce a comprehensive and well-researched document can lead to marathon writing sessions, where breaks are few and far between. This approach, though common, overlooks the significant benefits that taking breaks can offer.
