The first step is to bring back your disciplined study routine and chart out a weekly timetable. Setting a timetable helps you organize your time well and is especially useful when you have multiple topics to cover in a day. Read our blog on ‘5 Easy Study Tips’ to get started.
Every student has his or her own productivity phases in a day. Some are night owls and can study until late at night, and others are early morning people. Take advantage of the flexible time you have at home and adjust your study time accordingly. Make sure you follow the study time you have set every day.
Whether it’s the table in our bedroom or your dining table, set one study area and ensure to study there every day. You can also create your study zone by organizing your books and stationery on that table. While setting your study area, try to avoid your bed or the sofa for your studies as these places can easily tempt you to take a nap!
