How to think positively about studyPosted on 16/08/2017 by Jess O'Connor
“A negative mind will never give you a positive life.”
It’s a famous saying that’s true for practically every aspect of life, from study and work to relationships and self-confidence.
Thinking in a ‘glass-half-full’ way will help you study from home successfully, so here are a few tips for keeping a positive frame of mind.
Stay focused on your big goals
The point of study isn’t simply to pass the next test or to put a certificate on your wall, but it can be easy to lose sight of that when you’re busy or stressed.
Stay positive by reminding yourself of your big goals – the ones that you’ll achieve once you’ve graduated, such as getting a new job or securing a promotion. Focusing on your long-term goals can help to keep your spirits up.
Never forget that it’s a learning experience
It’s only natural to feel a bit stressed or overwhelmed from time-to-time when you’re studying, so try to be gentle on yourself and trust that you will figure it out in the end. After all, you wouldn’t have taken the course if you already knew everything!
Remember that studying is a learning experience and sometimes you will take some time to gain confidence.
Remind yourself of your successes
Did you do well on a particular assignment? Stick the grade on your wall in front of your desk. Did your tutor give you some positive feedback? Write it out at the top of your notepad each day to remind yourself of your strengths. Remember these positive feelings whenever you start to struggle.
Reminding yourself of your successes – large or small – can be a great way to keep a positive frame of mind when you tackle your next assignment.
