Exam season is here and while it may seem intimidating for most, remember that it is possible if you put your mind to it and grind. Remember that sometimes, the most difficult of problems are within your control and this exam season, Malta Daily and PwC are here to help! Here are 5 ways to beat procrastination during exam season:
1. Recognise your capabilities
When it comes to study, mindset is the first thing that you must consider and understanding what you are capable of in a limited timespan allows you to maximise your studying possibilities. Set targets & limits and get the most out of your studying.
2. Set daily goals
Setting goals every day is one of the best time-management decisions you can take. Laying down what you will be tackling on a day-to-day basis allows you to focus on the subject at hand whilst setting realistic pre-exam timeframes.
3. Time your breaks
A mistake made by many is the failure to take breaks. Trust us when we tell you that 12-hour non-stop study sessions or coffee-fuelled all-nighters are not the key to acing your exams. Instead, take short 10-to-15-minute breaks and increase your productivity by up to 45%.
4. Make short lists
Write. It. Down. When it comes to studying, we cannot stress enough the importance of writing. Whether it’s shortening your notes or writing down a to-do-list, shortlisting your tasks will reduce scrambling & stress.
5. Nourish your mind & body
Rest. Eat healthy. Move. Hydrate. Celebrate small goals. Improve your mind-body connection. Nourishing your mind and body will boost your energy levels and give you more juice to invest into your studying.
