Midterms may have just ended, but it’s never too early to start preparing for the real challenge: finals.
If you’re like me, than studying is not your favorite past time, especially if senioritis has hit you as hard as it hit me. So with that in mind, it’s probably a good idea to start the final prep now, and here is how I am going to do that.
Keep It Clean
Having an organized space with minimal items on it will help keep you focused. If you pull out everything you plan to study at one time, you will get distracted by the pile of stuff to do. Keep it clean by only having what is absolutely necessary.
If you are, like me, a person that keeps a planner with them all of the time, it’ good to schedule in study time so it’s set in stone. I am not very motivated to do things that are not already in my planner, so it helps make it a set thing I must do.
When you set a specific goal for what you want to accomplish in a study session, it makes it easier to get the work done. I am a huge fan of the to-do list, because it keeps me on track when my brain doesn’t want to function.
Spending never-ending hours studying and cramming is not a good idea. By starting this early, you can take more time and invest more into studying, so taking breaks is beneficial to your studying and mental health.
