How to stick to your study routinePosted on 12/07/2017 by Jess O'Connor
Creating a study plan is a great strategy that helps you feel organised and well-prepared – but it only works if you follow it.
Family, friends, and the latest episode of your favourite TV series can all get in the way, so here are a few tips to help you stick to your study routine.
Reward yourself for all achievements
Studying can be tough and tiring, but it’ll only seem worse if there’s no end in sight. Reward each milestone you hit with a treat for yourself that matches the magnitude of the task.
For example, if you need to read a chapter of a book, place a jelly bean at the end of each page. Or, if you reach your goal of four full hours of study during the day, give yourself the night off to enjoy a movie. And if you manage a full week of productive study time, treat yourself to a day off on the weekend.
Identify and remove distractions
Start by singling out all of your biggest distractions. Your mobile phone is often the worst culprit, but other distractions include open social media windows on your laptop, a good novel sitting by your bed, and even a pile of washing that needs to be put away.
Be it something enjoyable or a task you can use to procrastinate, put it out of sight and out of mind so you can focus on your study.
Study at times that suit you best
By now, you’ll know if you’re a chirpy morning lark or a wide-eyed night owl. For some, early mornings are the most productive time of day, while others would prefer some extra time to sleep in and are better suited to working in the evenings.
Know the times that suit you best for study, and make the most of them.
Remind others that you can’t be disturbed
If you have others in your home that could disrupt your routine, post your study times on the fridge or your door (or both) so they know not to disturb you during those hours.
