- Be Organised
Finding time to study can be tough, especially when juggling work and life responsibilities. Don’t leave your studying up to chance! Staying organised and ensuring you plan when and where you will study will be the key to your success.
- Make It A Habit
If you make a little bit of time to study every single day, it will keep your mind active and help you to keep on top of your workload and to avoid feeling overwhelmed. This will also help you remember things long-term by taking in smaller amounts of information on a regular basis.
- Do It Your Way
Everyone has a preferred learning style and it’s important to take the time to find what works best for you. If you’re unsure, why not try practicing between auditory, visual or tactile learning styles to see which you are most comfortable with, and which helps you absorb and retain the information best.
- Take A Break
It’s important to take regular breaks while studying to avoid feeling tired or frustrated. At least once every hour you should try standing up and getting away from your desk. You could try doing something physical like going for a walk or sitting outside in the sun to get some vitamin D in your skin and fresh air into your lungs.
- It’s Not A Race
It’s important to remember that studying is a marathon, not a race. It’s important to practice mental and physical self-care while studying. Set small goals and when you achieve them treat yourself to something you like, perhaps a meal you like to cook or a nice home skincare pampering. Be mindful not to compare your progress with others and try to stay motivated by remembering your end goal.
- Take It Easy
You’ll see better results in your studying if you take care of yourself along the way. Try to prioritise eating well, daily exercise, and always drink lots of water and ensure you are getting enough sleep each night. This will maintain that you are performing at your best day to day and give you the best chance for success within your studies.
