How to refocus on your studies after the summer breakPosted on 10/01/2018 by Jess O'Connor
Returning to study after the summer holiday is tough – especially when you study from home.
It can be challenging to motivate yourself to study when the sun is shining and you have no tutor to supervise you.
Thankfully, we’ve got some great tips to help you refocus.
Here are five ways to get back into study after the summer break.
1. Make your first day all about getting organised
On your first day back at your desk, focus on getting organised rather than doing actual study. Create a study schedule for the week ahead, write a to-do list, put important deadlines in your calendar, and do whatever else you need to do to feel back in control.
2. Write a list of all the reasons you’re studying
Are you feeling sad that the summer break is over? Are you dreading returning to your study notes? You need a change in perspective! Write a list of all the reasons why you’re studying towards a travel and tourism qualification – and then put this list somewhere you can see it every day. This list will motivate you to keep going and remind you of your end goal.
3. Just start!
It’s easy to procrastinate going back to study. “Just one more day off…” you’ll say. But, the more you delay studying the more likely you are to fall behind and create a stressful situation later on. Stop overthinking and just start! You’ll feel much better and you’ll probably get more done than you expect.
4.Make the most of your time off
Plan some summer fun in your time off. For example, take a picnic blanket and eat dinner on the beach or at the park with your family. Or plan a beach trip on the weekend with some friends. Reward yourself with a scoop of ice cream in the sunshine after a long week. There are plenty of ways to keep the summer spirit alive.
5. Remember: you’re not alone
Think of all the other people who are going back to work and study after the summer break. You’re not alone! Returning to “real life” after a holiday is always a challenge, but we’re all in this together.
