Here are 10 tips to excel in studies during the Covid-19 pandemic.
1. Avoid distractions
Excessive use of mobile phones and laptops can create distraction. Fix a time to study and be focused.
When you are done, fix a time to refresh yourself by listening to music, taking a nap or anything that you like.
2. Communicate to others at home that will be studying
It is so important to let your family members know that you are studying to avoid unnecessary disturbance.
This will give you a quiet time so that you can concentrate.
There is no point of studying when you are not focussed. During your chosen time, stay dedicated and focussed.
If you go over your decided study time, great! That means your hyper-focus helped you to study hard and prepare even more than you had planned.
When feeling bored or unfocussed, you can take short breaks, stretch yourself, have some snacks and get back to study.
4. Reward yourself
When you study hard, don’t forget to reward yourself. Studying in these times, when the whole world is going through a pandemic might be very difficult.
Don’t forget to reward yourself for doing so by eating your favourite desert, watching your favourite web series or just sleeping, whatever you like to do.
5. Keep reading
Whether you are reading out of pleasure or for reference, just keep reading.
Studies show that reading increases your vocabulary and improves your grammar. It also helps to stimulate your mind in downtime.
6. Set goals
Set some realistic goals that you can achieve. The goals should not be easily achievable or hard to achieve. Analyse your calibre before setting them.
Once achieved, reward yourself again or take a break!
7. Maintain your physical health
Being physically active is so important for an active brain. Play indoor, exercise often, dance and eat healthy food.
When you are physically fit you think of more innovative ideas to be better.
8. Manage mental health
It is so important to manage your mental health in these difficult times. Learn how to balance your emotions. Try to spend your time with family.
A person who is emotionally strong is often more focussed and concentrated towards the goals they want to achieve.
9. Boost your study skills
Focus on becoming a better student. Improve your hand writing, learn how to make notes that you can remember for a longer time.
Be an organised student, finish your assignment on time, and be creative.
10. Keep your social connections
Connect with your school friends and batch mates regularly through video chats and other applications.
Have healthy discussions on various topics academically and non-academically. Social isolation may lead to loneliness. Make sure that you connect with them daily.
