Waking up at 4 am to study?Watch
Hi guys! I'm planning to wake up at 4 am every day now (starting tomorrow) to study for my GCSES as I have about 28 exams coming up within the next couple of weeks. Do you think it's sensible? I've just realised I'm wasting my time when I wake up at 12pm, feeling groggy and more keen on doing something else. I just feel that waking up early in the morning will give me extra time to study. Has anyone done that kind of thing before?
It's completely up to you, entirely depending on how your personal body clock works. So why not try it out? If it works, great. If it doesn't, then you should try waking up a bit later. For me, anytime the sun's up is a bad time to study, but, as I said before people are different.
Tips for waking up early: (which seldom work on me, but hey)
1. Open the curtains. The natural sunlight will work better at waking you up than you might think.
2. Drink loads and loads (not too much though) of water before you go to sleep, so when you wake up you'll need to go to the loo, which will at least keep you up.
3. I know it sounds obvious but get enough sleep. Don't expect to wake up at 5 and go to sleep at 12.
That's all I got for ya. Good luck!
The most important thing is to find a compromise between work and fun, too much or too little work is demotivating. Make sure you're still having an hour or two of what you would consider "fun" a day, it really helps motivation
It'll also depend on how much sleep you need and what time you'd be going to bed at.
That's what I do; revise during the night and sleep during the day just because I'm more alert that way and there are less distractions at night
"Wake up a 5 tomorrow!" *sets alarm clock*
*alarm clock goes off*
*frantic hand waving to turn the damn thing off*
"Oh for goodness sake! It's 11 already "
Rinse and repeat until you realise it's stupid.
Get a good nights sleep and wake up at 8 or something. It'll be much better.
