Remember that learning should be fun, so incorporate some of your favorite subjects in your studies that still aligns with your overall education/career goals. For example, I am studying to become a police clinical psychologist (i.e provide therapy to police officers), so, in addition to my classes, I take a little time to read/watch detective stories as well as to enjoy the books of Sigmund Freud, Alfred Adler, and Carl Jung – the founding fathers of psychology. Taking a little time each week to do this makes learning fun, it motivates me, and it increases my knowledge of psychology and police officers.
Finally, reward yourself with healthy self care strategies – exercise, a bubble bath, a favorite movie, time with friends and family, a cup of hot tea or coffee, meditation, etc.
Always be kind to yourself when you stumble, remembering that it is what we learn from mistakes that is important. Believe in yourself, you are awesome because you are uniquely you ❤

- It is better to study on morning or evening?
1. Finding a place which is free of distractions could help you focus more.
2. Staying away from gadgets like phone, TV, computer will help you from getting distracted.
3. Break your chapter into small topics and focus on one particular topic at a time.
4. If you get distracted or get a thought which is unrelated to study, you may note it down on a piece of paper and get back to studying.
5. Use pomodoro technique while studying, it makes studying a less tedious activity.
6. If u feel sleepy, then change the pattern of studying. For example, if u were reading then you can start taking notes along with studying.
7. Staying hydrated also helps a lot while studying.

- 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?

- 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.
