Studying for the Bar Exam (and actually taking it) was by far the most difficult thing I have ever done. I expected it to be mentally draining, but what I didn’t anticipate was how emotionally and physically draining it would be. I should start out by telling you that I did very little of what I’m about to suggest… but that’s why I’m writing this post.
I did not take care of myself at all while studying for the Bar Exam, and I came unglued. I will never forget how, for the first time, I felt immensely sore just from sitting. My hips, glutes, legs, etc. ached from sitting for so long. I guess that’s what studying for 12+ hours per day, for 2.5 months, will do to you.
