Remote studying is now more common than ever, as many universities have chosen to move face-to-face classes and lectures to online, students understand how to adjust to this new way of learning.
So, without further ado, here are five tips on how to effectively study from home:
Tip 1: Find a quiet place to study
This may be easier said than done, but the key to having a quiet place to study is to remove any distractions. Turn off any televisions, close your browsers that have Netflix playing and ask those in your household or student accommodation not to distract you during your study time.
Tip 2: Create a routine
When studying remotely, it can be hard to know where work, study and fun activities start and stop. This is where having a set routine becomes handy. Aim to set your study time during regular hours that work for you and have pre-planned periods during the day to relax.
Tip 3: Set Up Study Blocks
Consider breaking up your study time into small, achievable blocks within your daily routine. Try work in blocks of 30 minutes to an hour and keep it simple. Use a timer to help keep track of the time.
Tip 4: Move Your Body
When your study blocks end, it is time to get up and move around. Staying active can improve your sleep, give you energy and help you manage stress. Try going for a walk outside, get some fresh and listen to some music, whatever works for you.
Tip 5: Stay Connected
When studying from home, it is important to stay connected with others for your mental health and well-being. This can boost your energy and improve your sense of community; staying in touch with friends and family can also help you relax and feel supported.
