Happy Anzac Day

How is everyone spending the long weekend?

I will be studying, as I have been doing for the past few days – hence the lack of posting. Sorry.

No one had any hot study tips for me. But does anyone have any tips on how to stay motivated and focussed? I would much rather be doing something else and I am very easily distracted.

I’d be no help on the motivated front – let me know if you need help with procrastinating – I’m world class at that.

Classical music is meant to help – as long as you don’t know it well and hum along instead of studying.

Libby – thanks for the tip – I will give that one a go.
Mattt – I am a world class procrastinator too. If only there was some kind of world procrastinating championships – who can spend the most time achieving nothing?
Hammm – hope kyck is madddd

Well your weekend is over now but something that I found good was to set yourself small managable tasks to complete before you can leave you chair. When it is done, get up and do something or eat something for a reward (maybe a really nice coffee or something). After no more than 10 minutes, get back into the next task. For me, saying I’m going to study for hour after hour solidly doesn’t work. Small chunks are good and then have an extended break to go for a swim or tennis or a run or something to reboost your energy (and your mind) ready to get back into it!
