How to Maximise Productivity When Studying

How to Maximise Productivity When Studying

It's exam season. *Shudder*. And many of us a busy studying for exams that we're told will 'define our lives'. A large proportion of us are probably reeeaally stressed and actually, despite all that stress, may be feeling we're not at our most productive, contributing further to that all-encompassing stress. Or at least a few of my friends and I are. And since you don't allow yourself to have anything (at all) better to do than work and revise during the months of May and June, maybe more, you end up searching frantically for ways to boost your productivity and motivation and just to get off twitter and do some work already!! Yeah, I've been there. I am there! Hence this blog post... So, without further ado, here are the techniques I've used over this last month or so that have actually been helpful to me in improving my productivity:

Pure Happiness and 'Me Time'

This last Sunday, just gone, was my designated 'me day'. I had the house to myself for a glorious 12 hours with nothing of great importance on my to-do list. If it were possible to have too much 'unconventional' fun, I think I would have hit that threshold on Sunday.

MMXVI - My Year in Words

This time last year, I was feeling incredibly reflective about the year gone by. As I said in last year's version of this post, 2015 was both the best and worst year of my life.

And that really is a great thing.

2016 in 16 Songs

Music is so underestimatedly emotive - it can transport you back in time in an instant and make you feel exactly how you felt back when you used to listen to that song on repeat. So when I saw a little while ago that Spotify had automated a playlist entitled "Your Top Songs 2016", I (re)embarked on the emotional rollercoaster that was 2016... Like, woah.

to the GCSE Student Post Mocks

How did you find your mocks? From what I remember, they were kind of a little scary and pretty different from anything you've done before. But that's okay - I promise. The whole point of mocks is to prepare you for what it will be like this summer.

One Year Ago Today...

On this day, exactly one year ago, I had probably the most terrifying night of my life. I was just going about my evening as I did everyday when suddenly I realised that I had no idea what I was living for. The thought struck me hard and for quite a long moment, I wasn't sure if I could trust myself with my own life. And that is one of the most terrifying feelings in the world.
