How To Stay Focused On Your Studies
At university, you’ll have plenty of reading and homework, so it’s important to have the right organisational tools to help you focus and hit those deadlines. Award-winning freelance journalist Alice Clarke says, “I’ve worked from home, essentially writing essays for 15 years, and my biggest tip is to get a big calendar whiteboard so you can keep track of deadlines. It’s easier to see them all written out, and satisfying to wipe them off the board when completed.”
Her next best tip is to create a ritual when you sit down to study, like making a cup of a particular flavour of tea and then turning on your desk lamp. These little things can help train your brain to know that it’s time to study and reduce distractions.
It’s also important to make sure you have the right technology. “While a good worker doesn’t blame their tools, they also make sure they have the right ones to begin with,” says Jason Tavoletti, The Good Guys Buyer - Computers, Printers & Monitors. “A good 2-in-1 laptop, like the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex, gives you the freedom to take notes and write essays comfortably and with the flexibility you need. Pair that with a Norton 360 Premium subscription to keep your new laptop protected.”
