Feeling discouraged to study...
Posted Friday, 7 September 2012 // 05:17
Times when we feel discouraged to work. There definitely will be times where we will feel today is not the day to study/work. I believe we all want to achieve excellent grades or do the best we can do! We don't want to be failures! Hands down... I can honestly say I am one of those people who sometimes don't feel like working so I slack.
I think keeping organise will definitely help! I went to Tescos a few weeks ago and bought this 2012-2013 planner diary. What I suggest is everytime when you have homework/work to do due by a certain date write it in RED so you know you have to do this; If there is an event then write it in either blue/black as you can see from the above image.
I always think keeping myself hydrated is essential. Keep some healthy snacks and drinks at the side so you won't be running to the kitchen every half an hour wanting a snack. Also when you're bored you tend to eat so I keep a few bites near me.
My aim is to study 3/4 hours a day. For example, I can study 1 hour then have a 15 minute break and come back to work for half an hour and break and so on. It doesn't matter if you work every hour and take a break or work in a pattern you are comfortable with. Just don't be ridiculous and have a 2 hour break and only work for 10 minutes.
Also have a tidy desk! Have an area where it is free, you can sit there and relax and work. I'm still experimenting with this plan and hopefully I'll keep to it.
Good luck, CL xxx
