The duration for the class suggested was 45 minutes to one-hour in order to have better retention capacity. After each period, a short break is needed for relaxing and stretching the body. He also urged the students to keep the eyes closed for 5 to 10 seconds to have a quick relaxation. While preparing notes, the main points can be jotted down. The interactive session shall be arranged towards the concluding part of each class. A regular exercise is badly needed to keep away from frustrations and to enhance concentration.
