My tips for studying at home.

Hi readers,

So as some of you know, I’m currently an Open University student. When I began studying from home, I struggled a little to adjust. Here are some tips and opinions I’ve come up with that helped me study.

Chose a designated space- A space free from distractions, and gets you in the mindset of studying. I find having everything I need in that space helpful.

Create a schedule- I like to know how long I need to spend studying. A routine allows me to use my time wisely.

Take regular breaks- Give your brain time to rest.

Remove distractions- I try to go somewhere quiet where disturbance is low (easier said than done)

Join groups- I learnt so much by joining WhatsApp and Facebook groups of people, who are studying the same as me.

Believe in yourself and work hard- Whether it’s online or in a school. Have the confidence in yourself. Try the hardest you can and be proud.

Have fun- I know how stressful studying can be, but I try to enjoy it as much as I can.

How do you guys like to study from home?

Thank you for reading.

Take care Lauren x

The point about joining groups is very interesting. I recently heard about “accountability buddys”, something I always tend to run away from but after years of boosting ultra independance I am slowly realising that the ultimate goal is attaining an “Interdependance” spirit. Thats when we can accomplish our greatest things. (The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” Stephen R. Covey (pg 49))

I’d add to the list Prayer –
I’ve set myself up in the loft where I can get sunshine (especially during winter) so I want to soak up the rays when I can for that vitamin D. And then it’s quiet, because my husband is working in our room, and both teenagers are in their rooms – we’re all working at home, during COVID, so there are chances for distractions, but when they happen, they are good breaks. Like running a load of laundry and then I’m back to my quiet time with God and studying the Bible.
