Greg’s Answer

That's a very good question and one that I can relate to. I always struggled with being motivated to study. I have a degree in engineering and a MBA so I hung in there somehow. What I did learn about myself is I can focus better in the mornings and specifically about 10am is my prime time. So, I learned to try and study in the mornings vs always at night. I could not get away from evening study but generally I was much more prepared if I aimed for the mornings. I also found that a study group is helpful. Finally, I started drinking coffee and that helped too. :)

You will need to focus on stress and time management. In order to manage stress you have to manage your time wisely. <span style="background-color: transparent;">You have to set a routine for yourself and stick to it for the most part. Once you get into the groove of a routine it will be much easier for you to manage your time and have enough time for everything you need to do (including relaxing). Make yourself to-do lists on a weekly basis, use Google calendar or a planner to keep track of events, deadlines, and due dates. In addition to setting a routine and sticking to it, plan out relaxing activities into your day. Or set aside a time, after everything is done for the day, that you can have "me" time. I have also personally found it essential to not only find time for myself but also make use of that time in a way that is best for me and my holistic wellness. I have found the HeadSpace app to be an essential tool in helping me relax and generally feel more relaxed throughout the day, Guided meditation, even if you have a busy schedule, will make you feel more at ease and relaxed throughout the day as a whole (not just when you have the time to relax and focus on that "me" time).</span>

<span style="background-color: transparent;">Set a routine.Use Google Calendar.Set aside Me TimeWrite weekly to-do lists and use a planner.Find a peaceful and restful activity that will help you feel relaxed.</span>

<span style="background-color: transparent;">Here is how to be successful in them:</span>

  1. <span style="background-color: transparent;">Stay on track - do assignments early, finish things a head of time, and be aware of all of your deadlines</span>
  2. <span style="background-color: transparent;">do all the the assignments and read all of the coursework required- do not cut corners</span>
  3. <span style="background-color: transparent;">use Google calendar to keep track of deadlines</span>
  4. <span style="background-color: transparent;">communicate with your professor early if something comes up</span>
  5. <span style="background-color: transparent;">do not be afraid to ask for an extension if you need one</span>
  6. <span style="background-color: transparent;">study, and study a lot! you don't have regular class sessions so you will need to put in more work at home.</span>
  7. <span style="background-color: transparent;">Do your best and genuinely try hard to give it your all.</span>

The best way to score high on the test is to Google search an online program or book that will help you study. Once you find an online lesson plan for success you can use it as a road map for studying. Otherwise, find a book to help you study and spend 45 mins a night reading through it and studying. Depending on when you test is, the first thing you will want to do is organize a studying schedule for yourself. Target studying certain sections of the test and divide them up by the weeks/months you have until you have to take it.

One way to help with motivation is to focus on achievable goals. Big, long term goals can be hard to focus on -- so set some small, short term goals. Maybe it is to focus for 30 minutes. Maybe it is to prepare to participate in your class the next day. Start with these types of small goals, and then let them build up into something bigger for you. The more you achieve your small goals, the more energized and motivated you may become for the bigger ones.

For keeping up your willpower for studying, I'd recommend doing microstudying, by which I mean studying in small bursts of fifteen to thirty minutes. It helps the information stick better in your head if you do short bursts of memorization over a longer period of time rather than trying to absorb a lot of information last second.

What really helps is planning. Plan out your semester. Have an actual calendar which shows when your tests are what chapters should be read. Also take breaks when you study.I use the pomodora technique. This is where you study for 20 minutes and take a break for 5. There is actually an app for this.

Hi Ena:

Start by planning your study. Whether it is the material, study place, tools, etc. I place things on my calendar and set reminders with breaks included. I try not to study when I'm tired or exhausted. I schedule my study time away from the family so I do not get distracted or lose focus. Staying motivated to study can be quite a challenge but, you can do it. Best of luck to you!
