I'm starting to get back into the routine that I made for myself. Here's what I've learnt and how it's helped.
Waking up at the same time each day every single day, especially on the weekends. I often sleep in on the weekend and I felt that my whole weekend became rushed as I would spend most of my time doing nothing. I find that when I wake up at the same time as I do for school days on the weekends, I am more productive.
Telling someone about your plan and what you are going to do. I have been telling my parents and being upfront and honest about how much work and revision I do each day. Not only does this keep me accountable but because I know my parents are aware of what I am doing, I work harder. Recently, I've been telling my mum to chose a couple subjects each weekend and I would revise both subjects for around an hour.
Using a timer and time-lapse. I'm not the type of person to take breaks as I get a "spur of the moment energy" to start doing revision and If I stop I know I won't start revision again. I'm trying to incorporate 5 minute breaks every so often to just relax and not go on my phone. I use the app forest to measure how much I study overtime and time-lapse myself working. After I have finished all my work, its really satisfying to see a video of me fully focused on my work.
I don't know if this will help anyone, but this has really worked for me.
I will try to stay more consistent and write more often!
