Struggling to have a productive study session while staying at home? Well you just clicked on the right article, those tips will actually help you get motivated and focused during your study session. Enjoy reading.

Here are some motivational pictures...

| Plan ahead |

Plan your whole study session and precise each one of these notes:

  • The subject you're going to study
  • Any homework you have for that subject
  • The exact chapter / unit you want to study
  • The duration of the session (not more than 4 hours, it's not good for you)
  • The place and time of the day

Once you've precised all those things, you are ready to start planning the details of the session.

| Set goals |

Your mind won't just sit there and study for hours without knowing where all of this is going.

You need a purpose for your studying, you may be preparing for an exam or making a research for a homework. You need to know why you are studying and where you want to be at at the end of the session.

| To-do list |

Create a to do list before your session, write down all the tasks you need to do and break them down into smaller tasks, you can even add a precised time for each task.

This might help you create a good to-do list every time!

| Create tasks |

Sometimes you just want to study and revise for an exam, but you don't know what to do exactly. Well create tasks for yourself!

  • Go through your notes, read them and try to understand each point.
  • If you come across anything that you don't understand, search it in your text book or just Google it.
  • Rewrite the important information from your notes on some cards or just another paper and highlight them, to make sure you remember them.
  • Make diagrams.
  • Answer old exams.

| Clean environment |

Clean environment equals a clear vision of what your study session will be. Make sure you desk and the area surrounding you is clean and organized before you start.

| Clear mind |

If there is anything bothering you, anything you want to do later and you don't want to forget, just write it down, write everything on a piece of paper and have a clear mind.

So when you start studying, you won't get distracted by other thing that you need to do.

All the things listed above are better done the night before, so you can sleep with a clear mind and wake up motivated to start your session.

| Prepare supplies |

Prepare every thing you need at the start of the session, have everything in front of you so you don't get up and loose focus.

  • Notes
  • Textbooks
  • Old exams
  • Laptop | computer
  • Papers & Pens

| Avoid distractions |

You may need your phone to study or search for something, so I won't tell you to keep it away from you. Just turn off notifications from all social media apps, and only open the files you need while your studying. You can even use apps that prevent you from checking your social media apps.

Also avoid getting up and going to the kitchen to get a snack, prepare a little snack before your session for when you are hungry, and make sure you have a bottle of water on your desk as well.

| Single-tasking |

Work on one thing at a time. Multitasking is not productive when it comes to studying, you can't write an English essay while answering an old exam of maths, your mind can't handle that and you will only waste time and loose focus and motivation.

| Take breaks |

Some people prefer taking short breaks between short study sessions (5 minutes break every 30 minutes of studying). While others prefer taking longer breaks (30 minutes break every 2 hours of studying).

Find what works for you, and apply that. Just make sure your breaks won't make you unmotivated to study (stay away from TV and social media). Try doing something productive instead:

  • Call a friend or family member
  • Check something off your daily to-do list
  • Clean your room
  • Clean your closet
  • Make your bed
  • Make a grocery list
  • Bake a cake
  • Cook a meal
  • Wash dishes
  • Organize cabinets | fridge
  • Respond to emails
