The Art of Studying + School-Work Tips and Tricks! โœจโœจ๐ŸŒฟ

Hey guys, it’s Morgan! Welcome back, and for this week’s marvelous post I decided I would share some helpful study life hacks, tips, etc. Now, without further ado, let’s get started!

1. GET ORGANIZED!

This is key to studying because it helps keep a clear mind set and makes you feel in control and not stressed. What I mean by this is keeping track of all the tests and quizzes you have to study for by making lists. Make it fun as well! Draw some doodles, write it in hand lettering, basically whatever floats your boat. Remember to also work in a clean space that is sure to not to distract you. Preferably somewhere calm, maybe even outside.

2. R e s o u r c e s.

Here are some of my favorite apps, websites, etc. to help bolster your test knowledge ๐Ÿ™‚

Tinycards

This is a website + app made by the one and only Duolingo! On it you can make your own flash cards and study ones other people have made! You can take practice quizzes on them and there are individual lessons that help you learn the cards! There is a variety of settings where you can just study the front or back of the cards and not do the typing part. If you have any questions feel free to comment them below!

Quizlet

Quizlet is a super helpful site where, similar to tinycards, you can make flash cards to study, but there are many cool features and different games you can play to learn the information which makes it fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Google

I know a lot of schools use google to help with class work but the different options you have can be super helpful, for example using google forms to make practice quizzes! Google docs is also great for making to-do lists!

Paper and a Pencil

Sometimes the best way to learn is one of the simplest! You can make yourself study spread sheets and other fun projects to almost connect exhilarating art projects to your homework to make it more interesting ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, remember to use the internet as a resource and gather knowledge to avail yourself of a fresh study guide! Doing the research can also help you learn more about the topic than you had already known before!

3. Procrastination

Here is the main helping point on helping how to get past “I’ll do it later.”

Put away distractions (!!)

Making sure any devices other than the ones you are using to help study are put away, and like I said before, find a space where there is nothing to pull you away from your work. Make sure to make the work first priority and get everything done early so you don’t have to worry about it later.

4. Stressed?

Work can be hard, and you have to make sure you don’t bite off more than you can swallow, so here is some ways to relieve some stress.

Take breaks.

By this I mean before you start any work, take some deep breaths, go for a jog around the house, have a quick snack, or take a mental break. If you are tense while starting work you are more likely to feel pressured. Something I like to do is use the Calm.com app. They have a selection of de-stressing activities; the ones I like to use are the college ones because one of them is a 3 minute study break which I find very relaxing.

Time Management

When you become good at managing your time it helps take a burden off your shoulders because it makes sure that you aren’t doing all your work at one time. I would suggest making schedules and lists of when each thing should get done, and make sure to keep an eye on future work coming up so you don’t not have something done.

5. Note-Taking Techniques ๐Ÿ™‚

STICKY NOTES.

Over the years, these have been my saviors for taking some sudden class notes :,) I love using these to take notes, and place them on my binders and notebooks! Also, if you are more of an online note taker there is a sticky-note app from Post It where you can make your sticky notes and put them into boards and other cool stuff!

NOTEBOOKS!

I would suggest keeping around one extra notebook for putting sticky notes in, writing down homework, and writing class notes! Make it something you can just pull out in case of need so you can write down quickly and get back to class! Sometimes the day before a test, I will make myself a mini study sheet in class while taking notes. Also, remember these are just suggestions so you don’t have to stress if something isn’t really up your alley.
