Hey guys! Welcome back. The semester is quickly ending. It goes by super fast because there are papers due, finals, and last minute projects that are crammed into one super busy month. It can be overwhelming, but with the right attitude and strategies, it is possible to survive without losing too much of your hair and sanity.
Tip #1: Keep a schedule.
Check out my post on to-do lists if you need some help in this area. Definitely keep some kind of list that has you assignments, dates, and other important things written down. It helps if you write them in order of when they are due so you can work on the important things first.
Tip #2: Sleep.
Sleeping is especially important during these last few weeks. Make sure you stick to your sleep schedule so you stay on top of things. It does you know good to work on things or study when you are exhausted. Make sure you sleep so you don’t oversleep and miss something. Sleep every night as much as you can.
Tip #3: Eat up.
Eating is just as important as sleep. Don’t skip meals just because you are busy. It’s hard to concentrate on an empty stomach. Find time at least twice a day to eat. Three is best, but realistically try to eat two meals.
Tip #4: Take care of yourself.
You can’t study all day and all night every single day. Make sure you get out and take care of yourself. Take a shower, go for a walk, and do things that need to be done. Do your laundry, clean your room, and allow distractions sometimes.
Tip #5: Schedule study breaks.
The times you take these breaks and how often you take them is up to you. I have a short attention span so I usually do 20 minutes work, 10 minutes break. But if your attention span is longer do whatever you feel is best. Just remember to take breaks so you don’t burn out and you can retain more information.
Tip #6: Surround yourself with positive people.
Be around people who motivate you and lift you up. Find people that inspire you to work hard and keep going. Don’t let others drag you down more than you already are.
Those are my tips to surviving these next few weeks. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did.
