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

23rd November: My first time attempting flow yoga.

Good evening readers!

This weekend I had my first try of flow yoga. It was an online class and some parts tested me.

It’s like regular yoga but quicker and more flowing movements. It did work my core and strength.

I think I worked off a few calories from it. I never expected yoga to be that fast.

Luckily the instructor had clear and easy it instructions.

Would you give flow yoga a try?

Thank you for reading.

Stay safe Lauren x

November the 5th: Happy fireworks night!

Hi readers,

Hope everyone is having the best fireworks night possible. This year I believe there are no firework displays. So unlike last year, I will be enjoying my fireworks night at home.

Firework sales have gone up this year according to statistics. I’m just hoping everything runs safely. I’m expecting to be looking after my dog all night as she is petrified of them. Bless her hopefully won’t be too bad for her and other animals.

Thank you for reading.

Stay safe everyone Lauren x

November 1st: Optimistic Sunday’s, feeling Christmasy and the start of no spend November.

Hi readers!

There’s always something about the beginning of the month, that makes me feel optimistic and theirs a fresh slate. Trying to keep positive after the news, that the UK will be going into another lockdown for four weeks.

My family ordered a brand new Christmas tree this afternoon. It has aided me to get into the Christmas spirit early. It was from Argos at £18, I believe is a very reasonable price.

Also, another exciting thing is I’ve decided to partake in no spend November. I’m known to spend a little to much at Christmas every year. So this year I want to focus on what’s important, and it’s not materialistic items, I will keep updating on how I’m getting on.

Thank you for reading! Hope everyone has the best November possible considering the circumstances.

Stay safe everyone Lauren x
