Tips On Studying


Hello guys! Today's post will be for everyone who's currently studying. I'll give you some tips that personally help me a lot, starting with motivation and continuing with practical little tricks. So, if you're interested in the subject, keep reading!

1. Keep a planner/agenda. I can't even stress how much of a difference it makes. In fact, I actually would recommend having a planner to not only people who're studying, but literally to everyone. It keeps you organized and allows you to have all the important things written down, which means you less likely to forget them. The secret to accomplishing things is committing them to writing.

"It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan." - Eleanor Roosevelt

2. Write it down. Speaking about it, writing down everything important in class will save you, I promise! Because when you'd be preparing for an exam, all the information you need to learn would be in one place and it'll make the whole process so much easier. And many times, even if you think that you'll remember it, write it down anyway.

3. Use highlighters/colorful pens. I use this tip all the time and it works amazingly. Since we're all visuals, it's a lot easier to go through your notes afterward, when everything is color-coordinated and the main lines are well seen. This way you can just quickly go through your notebook, catching everything important with your eyes in a moment.

4. Motivation. Well, that is actually something that comes from within. That means you must want it and you must know why you want it! So ask yourself, why do you wanna continue study hard, have good grades and do this whole thing? Always keep in mind some goals that will keep you going. You wanna attend a good university and have a successful career afterward? Do something for that today!

5. Reward yourself. I know, studying can be tough sometimes (all the time?). Rewarding yourself after you finished some hard work can really help you to get through the whole thing. Whether it's a new dress, a dessert or going out with your friends, make sure to give yourself some nice rewards. This way, it won't be the never ending torture.

6. Prioritize. I'm sure almost everyone can relate to the fact that there is just not enough hours in a day, while you need to do so much stuff. Here goes this thing - prioritizing. I know, a new episode of your favorite TV-show or a meeting at a cafe with your friend may sound much more appealing than 2 hours of studying: essays, PowerPoint presentations, going through all your notes...brr... But! Getting back to the 4 point, you need to understand what is more important for you long terms. Yes, it takes lots of discipline, but it's worth it!

7. Take breaks. Give yourself some breaks, seriously. Working hard is great, but you should know when to stop, because studying 5 hours non-stop won't make you any good. What it will do, is get you super exhausted, anxious and unhappy. With that being said, taking even just some small breaks is really important to freshen up and keep you safe.

Hope these tips were helpful for you and if you have some other ones, be sure to share them down below! 

Thanks for reading!

LOVE,
