Another year has begun and it's time to leave those bad study habits behind. As you enter into 2019, develop a healthy and proper academic lifestyle with three, simple tips.
Create your daily and weekly goals.
Listing all the things you need to finish can help you a lot in setting your priorities straight. It can also enhance your skill in organizing daily tasks and requirements such as doing homeworks, finishing projects, or preparing for the exams. In addition, listing these goals can teach you proper time management which will ultimately have a good advantage both in your academic and personal life.
Do not delay your work.
As much as possible, avoid dawdling. Instead, train your brain to get right into work before anything else. It is better to have finished all your study requirements before watching your favorite series or movie. Also, avoid texting your friends while you are studying so there can be less distractions. If you do this frequently, you will be amazed on what can be accomplished in one to two hours of focused time.
Get enough sleep.
Of course, you need to take a break from your studies. Do not let yourself get fatigued or worse, force yourself to study when you are very much tired. It isn't effective to memorize those technical terms if you are a second away from falling asleep. It is better to take a power nap first so you can have enough energy to resume your task.
