The academic years are a stepping stone to a successful career. You need to make the most of your education to make it productive and achieve your professional goals later in life. While there is no doubt that you are putting efforts to pass with flying colors every year and accomplish academic feats, Oswaal Books is sharing here little changes that can make a big difference to your education.
Let’s take a look at these little changes.
Establish a Study Routine
Dedicate certain hours of the day to your studies. Just the way you brush, bath, eat and go to school every day, follow this routine daily so that it gets into your habit. Your mind will get tuned to it. Of course, it is fine to change the study hours or take intermittent breaks to keep the monotony away.
Know Your Learning Style
Every student has a learning style. Some like to memorize by learning aloud; some like to write and learn and some study better with visual clues such as diagrams or patterns. Find out what works the best for you rather than following the style of your classmate or friend.
Find Your Study Zone
It’s never a good idea to study in a place which causes distractions. Choose a room or a place in your home where you can study with concentration and without any external disturbances. Make sure your study zone is neatly organized, gets natural sunlight and has enough ventilation. At times, you can even go out of home and study at your friend’s place or in a park.
Read Inspirational Quotes/Talk to Someone
Studies can be overwhelming. Sometimes, you can feel let down if you get low grades in exams or you don’t feel like studying. During times like these, read inspirational quotes. You can buy a book on inspirational quotes or stick posters on the walls of your study room. Alternatively, you can pour your heart out to someone whom you trust and seek advice from. This person could be your parent, sibling, friend or even teacher.
Stay Away from Social Media
We don’t need to tell you that social media is an addictive habit. A few minutes of browsing or chatting can easily turn into hours, wasting your productive time. It is acceptable to use the internet or an educational app for your study assignments but stay away from social media platforms. If you are at an age where your parents have given you mobile phone or device, refrain from downloading Facebook, Whatsapp or other such social media apps. You are not losing anything by not using social media.
Engage in Creative Hobby and Physical Activity
All work and no play make Jack a dull boy! Set aside around 30 minutes a day doing an activity that relaxes and rejuvenates you. It could be painting, playing the guitar, cooking or anything. It is also important that you allocate about 30-40 minutes of time to jogging, yoga or any other physical activity so that you stay fit and healthy.
Eat and Sleep Well
In the wake of studies, especially during exams, it is very easy to lose track of what you eat and how much you sleep. Well, don’t ignore your eating and sleeping habits if you want a healthy body and mind. Don’t say when your parents try to feed you nutritious meals and snacks or tell you to eat at the right time. It is understandable that there is a lot to study if you are in higher classes or it is exam time, but sleep is important too. Plan your study or exam schedule in such a way that you have ample time to finish your subjects so that you don’t compromise on your sleep. You should target at least 7-8 hours of sleep.
Make these little changes to your education and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results!
