Every time I struggle with a textbook exercise harder than what I'm used to I'm met with existential despair, this is no way to live and won't even help me improve, but I do not know how to stop and take things more lightly

@auramun just take a break, do something fun, better if it is something creative or some sport. Your brain will continue to think about the exercise, and maybe come out with a solution...

@auramun
I get that.

Sometimes the best approach to a problem is obliquely. Go take a shower and don't think about it. Go see a movie. When you come back you see things you didn't before.

Sometimes though for me its a small thing like a section of a bridge that I'm missing and once I get it, it all clicks into place, so sometimes looking at other problems or textbooks helps me get it.
