As productive as you would like to think you are, almost all of us have at some point in our academic life where we missed homework deadlines or did not worry about studying until the last day of exam. If you’d like to do something about it, here are three tips to help you:
Keep distractions away
From constant social media updates to television programs, there are dozens of distractions that keep us away from what we should be doing. The best way to avoid this is to designate a place for studies and follow a routine before you sit to study. For example, before you begin, place all the things you are likely to require on the study table. Switch off the phone or set it on silent mode, put your laptop away, and keep a water bottle with you. Over time, your mind associates these activities with studying, thus helping you reinforce your self-discipline and maximizes learning efficiency.
Take Meaningful Breaks
Contrary to what many people believe, watching TV or catching up with friends on social media to refresh yourself during a study break isn’t a good idea. Yes, it is true that we’re hardwired to focus on a task only for a certain stretch of time. It is also true that you need a break to allow the mind to relax. But watching TV isn’t the solution. This is because EEG studies on people have found that the brain is more active and alert while watching TV. The brain’s is busy taking in information, although it isn’t processing it. And that is probably why we zombie out before a TV screen! Instead, try taking a bath during the study break. It improves blood circulation, lowers blood pressure, and helps the mind relax.
Start With The Hardest And Gradually Progress To The Easiest
When you start with the hardest tasks first, the other tasks that follow do not seem so bad. When your focus and energy levels are at their highest, you can do accomplish more things. Doing the easier tasks later makes the work seem enjoyable.
