You can create a study room Empty You can create a study room

1. You can create a study room
The physical cues that differentiate'study-time' from'relaxation can be lost when working remotely. On campus, packing up your materials and returning to work cues your brain to switch from work to rest. We must learn to disconnect from our home. The best way to learn how to switch off from home is to use environment cues. These cues can be used to help us identify when to work' and when to relax. You can do this by setting aside a space for study.
Even if your space isn't large enough, you can still create one. It might be at one end or on the bench. Or somewhere similar. This is your dedicated study space. Your focus will be on study and related activities while you're in this space. Your brain switches off study mode when you leave the space. While it might take some time to teach this distinction to your brain (learning takes time), science supports the effectiveness of this technique.
Avoid having your study space located in your bedroom. Bedrooms are intended for rest, sleep and not work. If you're unable to keep them apart, then make sure there is a separate area for studying. Another way to visually separate work from rest is to use visual cues such as draping a blanket or sheet on top of your work area once you're done.
It is also important to keep any electronic devices, whether tablets, phones, or computers out of your bed. We teach our brains that bedrooms can be used to rest and relax, which encourages better sleep patterns. This improves our ability to concentrate, focus, memorize, and learn. All of these are important aspects when we study!
2. Take frequent breaks
Study is an essential part of your daily life. However, it's only a part of your whole life. It is crucial to cultivate all aspects your identity. Researchers have demonstrated that having high self complexity - that is, participating in a wide range of activities that you then use as a description of yourself (e.g. soccer player, avid reader, baker, gardener, artist, etc.) - This helps you to be more resilient when faced with difficult situations.
Relax and re-energize your brain by taking time for other activities than studying. You'll be amazed at how efficient and effective studying becomes when you have a good night's sleep and a short break.
3. Set up a routine
Routines offer predictability and control over the environment. Predictability can help us feel in control. It also helps us manage worry or anxiety. Reduced anxiety can allow us to use energy that would have been spent on managing these emotions for studying. It's a win for everyone!
Another benefit to routine is the fact that it literally changes your brain. By engaging in the same behavior repeatedly, neural pathways are formed. These neural pathways get stronger and more efficient every time we use them, which is when we repeat a certain routine. These settings are automatic and become our default settings. It is easier to learn new information when you spend less effort on repetitive tasks.
4. Stay Connected
We are all part of the University of Tasmania family. Connected and working together strengthens communities as well as those within them. We can share experiences, our resources, help, and be helped.
You should take time to get to know others in the community. Researchers have demonstrated that students who actively engage in the university community can be more resilient to challenges and feel more satisfied with their studies. Connection with others is key to our resilience.
Even if it's impossible to meet with your peers in person, you have the option of catching up online, by phone or via discussion boards. Email is another option. These catch ups may be university-related (e.g. These can be university-related (e.g. study groups) or informal (like meeting up for coffee even if it is virtual! ).
5. Utilize the available resources
It doesn't mean that you have less access to learning materials if you study from home. These resources exist because students use them. We want to help you get the most from your studies.
For more information, visit the student portal.
We are aware that the study experience is only a part of your overall experience with us. There are many services available to support your safety and health.
This applies to all forms and types of study.
6. Divide the tasks into manageable parts
The thought of all the tasks needed to complete a unit can seem overwhelming. It can be difficult to know where you should begin when you have multiple tasks due in different units. This is why studying can seem overwhelming. Writing articles like these do not always help students solve their homework problems. Instead, they seek out tutors and writing services. GlobalHack gives you an example of a review and user feedback.
Feeling in control means breaking down the 'to-do' list into smaller chunks that are easier to manage. You won't be able, for instance, to write an assignment in one sitting. It is better to break the assignment into smaller tasks.
This allows you to celebrate your accomplishments. This can help you keep motivated even when you are working on larger or longer tasks.
