Today has been a good day.
Currently I’m on study break for my exams, im in my 3rd year at the moment so this is my 5th time doing University exams, and it’s oddly satisfying, the calm I feel approaching such a big event. Alot of my friends are stressing and worrying doing all nighters studying. And I’m looking after myself getting good sleeps, working hard doing minimal study and still getting good grades, which is super satisfying. As I used to be the exact opposite, stress and anxiety ruled my exam prep, and exam times were always tough.
Recently I’ve been waking up early and heading into uni for a 9am start, and not coming home till 6pm, oh course I don’t study for the whole 9 hours, that’s crazy. But I do attempt to spend the larger portion of the time studying.
I decided to start analysing my days a little to compound my efforts, I’m already working quite hard, I just needs work a little smarter.
At the moment I’ve been experiencing a little bit of resistance towards study, so tomorrow I’m going to work on:
- Putting my phone on do not disturb while I study.
- Going to go to bed early and get a good sleep, so I’m well rested for tomorrow.
- Break my days into chunks so I’m not studying for hours on end, kind of like classes.
- Give my self praise when praise is due, weather it be for long periods of hard work and focus, or grasping a hard topic. Reward myself with a break or a snack. The grind doesn’t have to be unenjoyable.
So tomorrow is a new day, and I can’t wait to see how I handle it. Tomorrow is another day to prove to myself that I can do this 😊
My heart is beating and I’m still breathing, t
