How to beat the summer study slumpPosted on 22/11/2017 by Jess O'Connor
Summer is just around the corner, which may have you dreaming about beach days, road trips, and spending lots of time with friends and family.
In New Zealand, summer is traditionally the season to relax, celebrate, and take a holiday.
But what happens if you need to study?
It’s normal to hit a ‘study wall’ when summer begins – after all, most people would prefer to be swimming than studying! But no matter how loudly the beach is calling your name, it’s important to stick at your studies or you could risk falling behind.
Here are some tips for overcoming the summer study slump so you can stay focused on completing your qualification.
Change your study environment
Are you sick of staring at the same four walls of your lounge, bedroom, or home office? Get out and about and try a few different study spots. For example, take your laptop to the library or a quiet cafe. Grab a seat by the window or sit outside in the shade – that way, you can enjoy the beautiful weather while you study.
Wake up earlier
Rise and shine and make the most of those extra daylight hours! In summer, it tends to be much easier to wake up early. Start your day an hour earlier so you can finish an hour earlier and enjoy those balmy summer evenings.
Find a virtual study buddy
Just because you study from home doesn’t mean you have to study alone. Pair up with another student in your class and send each other encouraging messages. The key is to hold each other accountable to your study commitments. Your virtual study buddy is the ideal person to remind you why you started studying in the first place.
Make the most of your day(s) off
If you’re lucky enough to fit a study-free day into your schedule (or even a few study-free hours), then turn off Netflix and head outside to enjoy the sunshine. Get that vitamin D while you can!
And remember: you won’t be studying forever. Missing out on a few beach days over summer will be so worth it once you’ve completed your qualification.
