Rowdy holidays are behind and the suitcases are unpacked. All you have from those days are your funny photos and gifts, and now, your duty is to study hard.
Your schedule is the first thing to start with after the holidays. Just rewrite it properly in a diary or a notebook. Make sure your notes have all needed notations, such as the professors’ surnames and the exact names of your subjects.
It’s much easier to learn when you have the motivation and good reasons for studying. You can do a kind of anti-auto training: just imagine what will await you if you fail your exam. Do it in order to have healthy excitement and confidence that you’ll realize your plans. Don’t dramatize too much, there is no need to make a big deal of it. If you are an impressionable person, you may fall into depression.
Unfortunately, not everyone can boast of good memory. You should find the most suitable way for you to absorb knowledge. Some people perceive information much better visually; others do it better by ear. Preparation for labs or exams can be much easier if the information settles in your head well. If you a visual learner, you should highlight the main ideas in your notebook with color, hang colored stickers, compose algorithms, and do everything that will simplify your knowledge absorption.
The more effectively you use your time, the more effectively you study. All that time management stuff makes sense. Prioritizing on a daily basis is a great thing to do. Thus, you’ll avoid unnecessary waste of time on things that matter nothing.
So often, it may seem impossible to start learning hard and that nothing can help you. Even the image of your parents' gifts or your well-paid job are helpless with your lack of desire and motivation to study. In that case, the only thing left is to start learning in spite of all terrible factors.
Of course, to return to study mode after vacation can’t be an easy thing to do, but still, you can manage it. It’s all about your desire and strong will!
