Overloading a to do list

At the beginning of the school year, we are all very motivated and we always want to do our best and we say "this year I will be productive", so in the first days of school we decided to make a giant list, we got tired and very tired at the end of the day. probably with some unfulfilled items. So make realistic lists, believe me, they'll be much more productive throughout the year and not demotivate.

watching netflix, scrolling through social media before starting work

Believe me this is the worst thing you can do, we will be watching an episode of a series on netflix and we will totally lose the urge to start studying, so avoid picking up your phone to the fullest! Put the phone in airplane mode and rest for a while, do something you like away from the phone and then yes, start studying.

focus on aesthetic notes

Beautiful summaries are often not efficient summaries. Let's understand one thing, the time we spent doing a pretty summary, we might be enjoying it doing something more efficient. I'm not saying you have to do ugly summaries, no! You can use colors and everything, if that helps you!

procrastinating from the beginning

While some make big lists at the beginning of the year, others begin to procrastinate from day one, who never said "oh I do tomorrow"? Yeah! Try to find a middle ground, don't overwhelm you and even those people who do nothing! Procrastinating is the worst thing in a student's life.

being afraid of dumb questions, or fear of being judged

Who has never been afraid to ask the teacher something because they are afraid of being judged by their classmates? Understand, no one will judge you, everyone is there to learn, everyone is on the same level, so don't be afraid and don't stick with the questions kept for you.

not previewing material the night before

One thing I learned was, we should always read the material we are going to give the day before! This will help you so that when the class arrives you have a vague idea of what you are talking about and it will be easier for you to do the exercises.

setting unrealistic goals

I'm not saying you can't make big dreams, but make dreams that you know that you with effort and work you can achieve! For example an unrealistic dream, in my case, would be "I want to have 20 to all subjects" this is unrealistic for me, a realistic goal is "i want to improve my grades over the previous year."

not taking early tests seriously

The pressure we have on the first and last tests is always different. In the first test we think "ahh, I still have a lot of tests ahead, if you get a bad grade in this one I can improve" and in the last one it's totally the opposite right? So please, strive from day one, because all tests count towards the final average!

burnout

Be aware of the effort you must make and think that your mental and physical health is more important than the rest! Have a healthy routine and take several breaks throughout the study! If you start to feel exhausted, try to rest for a few days or seek medical help.

don't participate in extracurricular activities.

The excuse is always the same "I don't have time" yes you do! If you have time to be on your mobile phone, you have time to participate in some extracurricular activity you like! But do not overdo it and do not try to participate in many activities and then can not stand it! As I said earlier find a middle ground!

Until next article!
