When you found the times you study best, create a clean study environment. Make it organized and put all electronics away (if you need a laptop, block all unneeded websites). Make sure you have water or a cup of tea and maybe a HEALTHY snack so that you don’t have to keep getting distracted.
It’s best to study for a set time like 30-40 minutes and then have a 5 minute break where you stretch, eat a snack or talk with a family member. Watching YouTube and Netflix is not a break because your brain is still processing information at a high speed and that’s not good.
I hope this helped somehow 🙂 remember that motivation to study never just pops out of nowhere. It comes from building the right habits!
- What do you do when you need to meditation but cannot find a quiet place?
- What do you do for breakfast on days when you have to head right out the door?
- How do I quickly and efficiently learn a new language?
- Do you employ weights in the morning exercise or do pure calisthenthics?
- How do you keep a repetitive routine from becoming boring
Dinner offers a nice break between work and study so you don’t feel burned out and by getting your studying in early, you leave yourself enough time afterwards to enjoy a guilt free reward – your favourite tv show, music, a book etc.
Otherwise, from experience, if you do the rewarding ‘fun’ thing first then you’re not really incentivising yourself to study and will likely put it off.
- How do you develop self-discipline?
- How are you staying motivated to do “deep work”?
- 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?
- How can I stay positive among critical people?
- I’m trying to get better at writing and read a lot. But when I read something great, the feeling I could never possibly compare is overwhelming, it keeps from practicing for a few days. How do you deal with the crippling self-doubt?
- I can’t seem to find something to study, or learn about once I finish my work. I want to learn, but I can’t find anything to learn about. Can anyone offer suggestions?
- Studying is something that I have to do, and I always feel so tired if it. I always want to skip this part. Do you have any suggestions for me to rewire my brain for enjoying in my learning and studying? I really hope that I would enjoy it someday.
- How do you get focused on studying when something is already going on in your mind?
- How do I stop putting of work for later?
- How do you drink water every day?
