Tip: Create your own Study From Home toolkitPosted on 18/03/2020 by Jess O'Connor
If you were coming into a classroom to study, you’d probably have a little bag of things you’d always bring with you.
For example, a notepad to write in, a packed lunch and some snacks, a drink bottle, maybe even a laptop computer or tablet.
Have you considered creating some kind of ‘school bag’ or toolkit for Studying From Home?
Think about how long it takes you to set up your study station each day.
Do you have to go around the house in search of writing paper, a pen, and your drink bottle?
Do you spend way too long gazing into the fridge, wondering what to eat for lunch?
Are you getting up from your desk every few minutes for water refills and snacks?
It might sound simple, but packing a bag or ‘kit’ to study from home can keep everything you need in one place and help to minimise distractions.
Every night, take the time to pack your kit or set up your Study From Home space, so by the time you’re ready to study the next morning, all you need to do is sit down and get started.
You could even go one step further and pick an outfit to wear, too. Often, getting into some ‘real’ clothes (as opposed to your PJs or trackies) can put you in the right frame of mind for serious study.
If you can, try to pack your lunch the night before, too. Although you can technically make whatever meal you want when you Study From Home, taking an hour out of your day to play Master Chef in the kitchen might not be the best use of your time.
Basically, pretend you’re going into the classroom to study, even though you’re only travelling to your desk.
It’s a small mindset shift that can produce big results!
