Time is the most precious resource. It is the most valuable thing you have. It is perishable, it cannot be replaced & it cannot be saved. One who is able to make efficient use of time can be a conqueror. But it has been observed that many aspirants lack the ability to use time properly.
Here are some tested-and-proven time management tips that will help you organize and manage the 24 hours as efficiently as possible while studying –
Plan your study schedule
Create a realistic, not strict schedule. You should make a study plan that works the best for you. Allocate adequate time to each topic. Dedicate more time to difficult topics and less time to the topics you are already confident with.
Stick to the plan
When it comes to the academic success of the students it is important to effectively use the time & sticking to the study plan. Making a study plan is easy, but the challenge is to follow it properly. For instance, if something pops up you will have not to worry since you already have time to study.
One of the hardest aspects while studying can be to avoid distractions. Almost nobody actually enjoys revising, which means that it is very easy to procrastinate and avoid studying. Even once have you started; it is easy to get distracted. Before you know it, two hours will have gone by, and you won’t have done anything except checking social media. To minimize distractions while studying, you can pick these ideas –
- Go somewhere conducive to study
- Remove your access to Social Media
- Make your Study Plan interesting
- Remind yourself of your end goal
- Try to consciously tune out distractions as you notice them.
Take short breaks
Studying past the point of your max will leave you unmotivated. Taking short breaks rejuvenates your mind and makes it grasp more. Study time doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on your health regime, so taking a break in between study time is perfectly fine but at the same time make sure, breaks should not be that long which causes harm to your study schedule.
Take proper sleep
Get a good night’s sleep. Your brain needs to rest to perform at its peak. If it’s time to sleep, list the topics you still need to revise on the next day’s study plan and go to bed.
