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

December 12th: How I deal with Christmas stress.

Hi readers,

Christmas can be a stressful time, so here are some of the techniques I use to combat that stress.

1. Start early- It saves a lot of worry before the big day.

2. Get in the Christmas spirit- Watch a Christmas movie, create some Christmas crafts or listen to some Christmas music.

3. Talk with family/friends- Keeping in touch is very important at the moment. Speaking any concerns to those I trust always seems to make me feel better.

4. Try to focus on the positive- It can be difficult sometimes to see anything positive, but I find trying to focus on something positive can help my stress.

5. Enjoy the moment- During Christmas time, it seems as though I’m trying to one thing to the next.

Thank you for reading!
