It’s exactly two weeks until my first final and three until my last. With other words these coming three weeks my days will look like this:
- wake up
- hopefully have time for some exercise
The time before an upcoming exam is always really frustrating as you have absolutely no time for “me-time”. It’s intense, frustrating and by the end of it you feel like there is absolutely no way your brain can register any more information.
So what’s the best way to get through it?
- Plan your time!
Make sure you schedule exactly when to study, and what, when to take breaks, work-out and so on. If you plan it before hand you can make sure you give each are the time it needs.
- Never skip a break!
Breaks are extremely important. Without breaks you’ll end up studying for way to long and you become extremely inefficient and easily distracted. Breaks are crucial for efficient studying.
Exercising energizes and clears your brain. It’s an excellent opportunity for some me-time. I usually go to the gym with a friend so while exercising we get some girl-talk done. Another great thing about exercising is something you can do without feeling guilty because what you’re doing is actually a good way to spend your time.
Get to bed in time so that you can start your day early. Atleast I am more efficient in the morning.
I am going to make my study-schedule this weekend and I am going to stick to it! Hopefully it’ll result in good grades!
