- What are you studying?
- How do you remember to keep your habits up?
- What are some ways you study if you are pressed for time? Do you use apps or read articles?
- I would like to learn more about the history of the United States and the world. However, my time is limited. Any suggestions on where to begin, clear and factual short readings, videos, apps, tidbits?
- What are your pre-study habits that gets you amped up and moving?
When I wake up in the morning, I take 2 glasses of water first before I eat anything else. I then make sure not to eat any meal before taking 2 glasses of water.
This easily gives me the 8 I need for the day and time for my kidneys to rest at night.
On days that I work out. I take more than 8.
My goal is three bottles’ worth of water (about 90oz). To make sure that I’m not short-changing myself by overestimating, I use the bottle even when I’m at restaurants. Further, if I’m at home and decide I want a cup of herbal tea, I will pour water from the bottle into my mug to heat, rather than getting some from the sink, so (again) I can track my intake via my water bottle.
The only thing I don’t have set up is a good counting system so that I know which refill I’m on. I’ve considered using rubber bands; if I put three near the top of the bottle so that whenever I refill it, I can just move one down near the bottom. Once all three are down there and the bottle is empty, I’ve hit my goal.
I want to keep my streak, so every morning one of the first things I do is drink a big glass of water.
It is also part of my afternoon routine, but not my night routine, I find I wake up in the middle of the night if I drink right before going to bed
I've actually tried to cut out all beverages, including liquor. So I only drink water. On days that I feel like something sweet, I think about my purpose
- If you are self employed, how much time do you spend improving yourself and how much time working? 50/50 30-70 70-30?
- what kind of topic to learn is most important for you
- I have ADHD and really procrastinate. How can I change my feelings on studying so that it’s something that doesn’t fill me with dread?
- How can one stay constant with learning a new language? It’s hard for me to study even though it’s on my list, but I usually over look it because I don’t have anyone to be accountable to.
- Do you best remember information by reading it multiple times, speaking it aloud, or writing it down?
- How do you set a time limit on what you study? For me, I have to finish the chapter, or perhaps keep going if I’m on a roll. How do you make sure you stop after, say, 30 minutes and not walk away wishing you’d stayed?
- I’m in the summer between my 10th and 11th grade, and I didn’t do very well in my 10th grade, should I be trying to continue learning to try to be in a better position when we return or just give it a break until September?
- How do you deal with guilt and shame when you really want to get out of bed and get everything done but you physically are not able because you need the sleep in order to recover from the previous day? This usually happens to me when I have a day off and need to use it to meet upcoming deadlines and catchup on things.
- How about you? What are you learning?
- What is your study schedule?
