They say you learn time management in college. Well you don’t want to wait until then, so I’ve provided a couple more life-hacks for you all. In my previous post I mentioned a few ways to increase your effectiveness while studying.
- Work standing up.
This one might be a bit extreme, but set up your computer so you can work while standing. This helps me not get too comfortable while I work. I’ve found if I’m too comfortable I’ll be more inclined to get distracted by the vast world that lies just a few clicks inside my internet browser. The slight discomfort of standing serves as my motivation to get my work done. Which leads me to my next point..
- Reward Yourself!
If I have been working for a while and am starting to drag along, then I’ll do something different. Dare I say, do something fun. For example, check out our Book Break series for a short drill you can do between study sessions. If that doesn’t work for you, experiment and find out what does.
Remember that these are just some things that have worked for me. For best results, find what works best for you! Check out part 1 of this series.
Let us know what you come up with. Do you have any tips for other student-athletes?
