So you’ve been ignoring it all month but the midterm is tomorrow and you need to get down to business the night before and finish studying it all! We’ve all been there before, and I know how hard it is to actually start studying once you’ve settled down to do so. Here I thought I’d share some tips to keep your desk clean and organised, so that you can optimise your study space and study a bit more effectively.

Remove any items that distract you: Whether it’s at the library or in your room, make sure you don’t have any distracting items (eg: phones, iPad, etc.) near or on your desk. We all know how that ends up. I prefer the library or common study areas instead of my room, so you only bring study material.

Make sure you have all your supplies: Remember to have all your study items like pens, markers, sticky notes, clock, etc. handy so you don’t get distracted looking for them.

Atmosphere is important: Study in an atmosphere that is tidy, brightly lit, well ventilated, and not too noisy. If you’re in your room, motivational notes or study schedules help.

Always keep water: Make sure you have a bottle with you as it’s important to stay hydrated if you’re going to be studying for a while.

Take short breaks: Don’t overwork yourself and remember to take a deep breath every now and then, and look away from your computer screen/ book at regular intervals to focus at something far away to relax your eyes. If needed, keep your snack breaks quick and try not to work on an empty stomach.

Hope that helps. Add oil for the midterms ya’ll!

你也曾昏昏碌碌過了一整個月才想起來期中考試就在明日。考試前夜,你需要安頓下來複習完所有內容!我們都有過類似的經歷,我也知道安定下來開始真正投入到學習中有多困難。所以,我想我可以分享一些保持桌面整潔的小貼士,或許可以幫你改善學習空間,並且提高學習效率。

清理一切可能分散注意力的物品無論是在圖書館還是在房間,必須保證桌面及其附近沒有可能分散注意力的物品,如手機、iPad。如果不清理,結果如何,我們都心知肚明。相比自己的房間,我更傾向於選擇圖書館或者其他公共學習區,因為只需攜帶學習資料。

確保帶齊所有必需品記住,帶齊所有學習用品,比如:鋼筆、記號筆、便利貼、鐘錶等等。如此便不必分散注意力去尋找它們了。

學習氛圍的重要性最好在一個整潔明亮、通風良好和不會太吵的環境下學習。如果在自己的房間,勵志便條和學習計劃可以幫到你。

隨身帶水確保隨身攜帶一瓶水。如果你要學習一段時間,必須保證體內水分充足。

途中休息不要超負荷地學習,偶爾做做深呼吸,把目光從電腦和書本上移開,看看遠方,放鬆放鬆眼睛。如果需要,可以迅速吃一些小零食,盡量不要餓著肚子學習。

希望以上內容可以幫到你!期中加油!!
