6 Tips For Finding Motivation To Study

This week I realized that in order to actually sit down and do some work (any work, really), we must be really motivated to do it. Since there is plenty of tasks we simply can’t get started on, I’ve come up with a few things that could help us get our study/combat/I-Can-Ace-Everything mode going:

How to Get Motivated To study

1. Clean up your desk and room. Like I mentioned in the previous post, clean room = clean head

2. Organize all loose papers. Put them in a binder or folder, keep them in one place and in good order that you can follow.

3. Make a “to-do” list. Can’t do anything without that. Whether you’re using an app or a simple journal, setting your goals and tasks is a priority

4. If time permits, watch an inspirational movie. I usually combine it with cleaning my room. My personal favorite is “Legally Blonde” – I instantly get a wave of inspiration to study something and ace it. What’s your inspirational film or show?

5. Approach tasks in smaller chunks. Do homework in 30-45 minute increments like in the Pomodoro Technique. This is optimal time frame just because you’d be able to focus but not get too tired.

6. Reward yourself with food & breaks. I eat sweets and drink tea.

How do you get yourself pumped to study? It sure isn’t easy for me.

5 Habits of Organized Students

I haven’t posted this type of posts in a while, but I’m slowly getting back in the game. With finals finally being over, I’ve thought and reflected on what I did right and wrong in the quarter and came to the conclusion that organization may be one of the key aspects to good studying. So here are 5 habits that every organized student has and I would like to strive for in the next term:

5 Habits Of Organized Students

1. Studying and reviewing material right after lecture, every day/evening. A little bit of daily review will help avoid late-night cramming before any test. Make a study plan

2. Setting personal deadlines 3-4 days before the actual deadline. This gives some extra time for any edits or even emergencies that could come. No more “Ah, I have a 10-page essay due tomorrow!” at 11 pm anymore!

3. Using a good calendar/planner/organizer will help with seeing what’s coming up and due in the next weeks. I found a great app for any device a few days ago and am loving it!

4. Keeping the room and bag tidy will help with distractions and feeling of clutter in my head. This is definitely a problem and often I spent more time cleaning my room before studying than doing actual work. These are just a few things that affect our concentration.

5. Prioritizing tasks. Asking yourself, what’s due the earliest and what’s more important to get done? What can wait? What can I do later in the evening when my head isn’t working as well? What do I need to be sharp and attentive for?

What are some other things that help you stay organized? 

Preparing for Next School Year + New “To-Do” App

Once the summer vacation starts, it’s so tough to think about school. I know I definitely don’t miss the times in high school when we got assignments for fall and they were hovering in my head like an enormous debt. What’s worse, putting that brain to work after a long vacation is no easy task. There are a few simple things I’ve been doing for the last couple of summers that really helped me stay toned for work and ready for school in the fall. The key is to do them throughout the summer vacation, not a week before school begins.

1. Wake Up Earlier

This will make waking up for school easier once it starts and will give you more time throughout the day to explore and be productive! I don’t know how early “early” is for you guys, but for me 10 a.m. is still pretty early in the day. If you think about it though, the average adult needs about 8 hours of sleep. So if you get yourself used to waking up slightly earlier than your normal ‘sleep-in time’, you’ll get yourself used to it for the upcoming school year.

2. Stay Organized

No need for a fancy planner or anything like that, since there are rarely any homework assignments (thank goodness). Instead, plan your days with an app in your phone and stay up to date with all appointments, work and trips. I recommend a great (and free!) one called TickTick, my recent discovery. It has a super clean, easy-to-use interface with one huge “+” button in the middle that will make it very easy to write down your reminders in one place. In addition to it being a great option for a calendar on-the-go, there is a way to print out all your tasks, attach photos and even share the lists with friends and family.

I’ve also been using TickTick for school lately and it’s been helping me fabulously in keeping up with all my homework assignments, tasks, appointments and even work shifts. There are amazing options for reminders, calendar view, and synchronization over multiple devices, so I’ll be sure to keep this app for my travels and the next school year. Because all versions, mobile and desktop, are very user-friendly, I just have them open on all devices so I can glance there every once in a while and check off what I’ve done. (I think I got my little sister hooked on it, too)

To get to the point, it’s good practice to keep that agenda handy and get yourself in the habit of writing down reminders and making to-do lists. Even if your summer isn’t too busy, it never hurts to stay organized.

3. Read

This is kind of a obvious and cheezy one, doy. With the huge amounts of homework throughout the year I’ve barely found time to sit down and enjoy a good book. Reading will keep your eyes and brain sharp and ready to process information, as well as give something intelligent to do on besides sitting in front of a computer screen 24/7. I for one, am very excited to get to that (right after those exams…) and my current reading list is taped on the wall in front of me for months: Paris by Edward Rutherford, Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert , reread Unmasking the Face by Paul Ekman and perhaps something else I will most likely dig up in a bookstore.

~Some personal news: I’ve been accepted to an Exchange program in the UK for next winter/spring, but haven’t reached my final decision yet. The commitment is huge in terms of finances, so there are still a million things to consider and calculate. Nevertheless I will be exploring the topic of study abroad in the next few weeks as I’m planning my own exchange, so do expect some posts on that topic!~

What are your plans for the summer and how do you keep yourself sharp for the next school year?

Her Campus Guide to College Life

Her Campus Cover

If you are a high school student looking forward to college, applying to college or a student in college already, this post is for you. A few months ago I got a chance to join the Her Campus Blogger Network, which is a networking site for high school and college bloggers. They have grown quite a bit now and on May 19th published their first Her Campus Guide to College Life! I decided not to wait too long and purchased my copy on Kindle and can now read it on the go as I’ve been going for more compact ways of carrying my books and notes throughout the day.

The book covers everything from academics to relationships to safety to instructor communication and is an invaluable introduction to everyday college life. I only wish I read it two years ago as a freshman, it would have made things so much easier!

My two favorite sections were Landing Jobs and Internships and Study Abroad, as the two have been my main focus in life these past few months. When I just began thinking about looking for a job in my field, I didn’t really know where to start. These chapters give a very nice and complete overview of things to consider and to search for.

Jobs and Internships Studying Abroad

All in all Her Campus Guide to College Life is definitely worth a read whether you are a high school or a college student and want to get the full college experience.

Study Groups: Why They’re Cool

Hello my dear friends –

It looks like I’m getting back into the groove, I’m feeling some academic-blogging inspiration! Hope everyone has been having a fabulous time! For a little update on my life here, things have been pretty stale except for one very important thing: I applied for a Study Abroad program and am impatiently (as in checking my application even though I know nothing has changed) waiting for an answer, which should have been emailed to me starting on Saturday. I won’t go into too much detail now as I would like a firm answer first, but beware and prepare for a ton of study-abroad related posts even if I don’t get in! In other news, I’ll be going to Europe this summer: first to visit my family in Russia and then on a crazy Eurotrip with some random dude (okay, boyfriend) all over Germany, then Amsterdam, London and Dublin. I’ll be sure to visit all university campuses I can!

**Also, feel free to follow my personal Instagram account, as I’ve been updating it more often now. I won’t publish anything blog-related on it yet but if you’re interested in the slightly lame details of my life, here’s your cue!

_______________________________________________________

study groups

Here on the west coast, the quarter is only half-way through and midterms are in full force. I’ve taken two already and they went alright, but the one that’s coming up, Statistics, is going to kick my butt. That’s why I readily accepted some of my classmates’ invitation to form a study group – and found it to be one of the most valuable study activities.

1. You can teach people what you know

-Which definitely helps with understanding concepts for yourself. Once you are able to explain them to someone else (correctly), you got ’em!

2. Discussion can bear fruit

-Okay, maybe not literally unless you bring an apple with you, but by combining your knowledge you can figure out answers to problems you wouldn’t been able to get on your own!

3. Split the work

-Of course, knowledge comes with great work. But if you are in a group, you can split it and get things done much faster. Be careful though and make sure that you know how it’s done in order to be able to do it on a test.

4. Make friends

-Here comes the obvious cheesy one. Working in groups is a great opportunity to get to know other people and make friends. Think of yourself as a character in “Community”, except maybe a little less weird and offensive.

 

~What do you find most helpful in group discussions? What do you like the most about it? What are the drawbacks? Share in the comments!~

 

P.S. Here is a picture of a very pleased dog from my most recent camping trip.

Yoga for Stress Management?

First of all, some personal news: I just got a wonderful internship at butter LONDON makeup company based here in Seattle. Super pumped about that. Also, planning a super awesome trip to Europe in the summer. Also, I think I’ll die of stress very soon.

I have finally found something to do besides homework and driving back and forth between school and home. Yoga! Gosh, it has so many wonderful benefits that I simply couldn’t not share them with you guys. If you are prone to anxiety of stress, I think this could definitely be your solution! Yoga gives you both great exercise and a way to relax your body and mind, which is what attracted me to it in the first place. After two horribly stressful midterm weeks and a few nervous breakdowns, I decided that I need to get myself together and find an activity to get involved in. Having a minimal amount of money to spare for this stuff, I looked through Groupon for yoga deals in my area. The one I found was 10 classes for $40, as compared to $99 regular price. This was definitely a steal, so I bought it almost without thinking (as always) and headed for the studio.

If you are like me and are worried that you don’t know anything, chances are that you’re not the only one. Yoga is a very accommodating activity, which means that every excercise has variations suitable for your level of skills. Of course, at my first class I tried to do every pose and failed miserably. It must have been kind of funny to the instructor, but she was super sweet and even helped me get into the poses I wanted while everyone else was doing headstands and whatnot. Anyways, I am now on class #7 and have improved immensely. Here are some poses for inspiration:

If you are a stressed student or simply want to try out a couple classes, I’d recommend starting simple. Vinyasa is a flowy type yoga, where you switch poses very gracefully (I have yet to master this skill) and breathe in a special pattern. I also went to a Meditation class, which was a whole other level of experience – I’ve never felt so peaceful in my whole life. This one I’m definitely going back to. The instructor guided me and one other student throughout the entire class, but in such way that it wasn’t distracting. In a way, mediation is supposed to help you let go of all your thoughts and worries and just focus on one thing, like your breath. If you concentrate on how you breathe, you feel like you’re slowly flowing into deep, deep trans. As much as I’d like to say that I was totally enlightened, that didn’t happen. I think I still have 30-40 years to go. If you are looking for a more work-out type yoga, you can test out Power Yoga or Bikram and Hatha. Power yoga focuses on your muscles and core, and you hold a few difficult positions for some time. Bikram or Hatha yoga are types of hot yoga. These are made for you to sweat your worries away in a 104° F room. I usually get crazy light headed, but I think it’s because I don’t drink enough water before the practice.

Anyways, that’s my experience right there. I love having an activity, especially one that helps me feel less stressed and more relaxed, besides school. with only a 15-minute drive, I enjoy a whole hour of peace and some much needed exercise three times a week. If you have such an option – try it out. Yoga classes are often offered by independent studios and fitness centers. Check Groupon for some possible deals in your area. Do you do yoga? What’s your experience? What do you do besides school? Tell us in the comments below!

Also, thank you all for sending me such wonderful messages and questions! I promise I read through all of them and try my best to answer them :c It seems like Tumblr is working much, much better than this site, so I’ll see what I can do. Maybe transferring back will be a good idea. What do you all think?
