Sometimes I wonder how many hours of my life I have spent studying? The short answer: a lot.
I guess you could say I am quite the ‘seasoned pro’ when it comes to long study sessions.
So without further ado, I have put together a list of the top 5 ways to KICKSTART your study regime.
Maybe your feeling tired or overwhelmed or even just burn out? Here are 5 ways to get back on track
Move away from your desk. Refresh and reenergize. Start by going for a short 20-minute walk. Use this opportunity to clear your mind, listen to some music or just ‘switch off’
2: Move spaces
How long have you studied in the same environment? Have you ever thought a change of scenery could help? Lots of people study at home, however for some this can be a huge distraction. Try moving to your public library, an office space or even a quiet café to freshen up your space
3: Write a task list
I’ve made previous posts about how I am task list obsessed. The best way to be productive is to prioritise. Think about what needs to get done? What will take the most time? When are your assignments due?
4: Create a balance
Understand that you can’t sit at a desk for 10 hours a day and cram. It’s not possible. Make time for yourself so you can relax.
5: Remove distractions
This is a tricky one but trust me it works. In the time you’ve allocated to study – e.g. 2-hour study blocks for those 2 hours turn off your mobile, log out of Facebook and all social channels on your laptop and just focus on the task at hand. After your 2 hour study period, think of turning on your devices as a reward!
I’d love to hear from anyone else who has implemented something different.
