GTG- College Edition

Here is a list of genius tips for studying, comparing, and concentrating.-GTG College Edition

According to the US Department of Education, women are the majority on college campuses now. College is a great time in your life to master certain life skills and explore who you are without judgment or guilt. It can give you a sense of accomplishment and independence, and you can make some really great friends along the way.

Here is a list of genius tips for studying, comparing, and concentrating.

Let me know in the comments if you already practice these. What other techniques do you use?

Study Tips

  1. Keep yourself happy, and healthy by eating lots of delicious fruit and crunchy vegetables.

2. Get lots of mind-clearing sleep

3.Snag yourself a quiet area and a comfortable chair for at-home study sessions.

4. Clear distracting clutter from your desktop/laptop as well as your at-home study area.

5. Turn your phone notifications off/low while studying, to avoid distractions.

6. Treat yourself to study breaks. Walk or play with your pets. Go outside and get some fresh air. Grab some juice.

7. Make sure you have someone you can call for academic and emotional help when studying gets too overwhelming, or you need help with a particular subject. (Never be ashamed to say you just don't get it.

College Pressures A vast majority of the population would argue that high school and College are the best years of your life. One thing I feel we don't talk about as a society is the internal and external pressures many of you will face while attending College. You will indeed meet many different people from all walks of life, and you will experiment and puch the boundaries of what you were taught by your parents. If you are lucky, you will find out who you are on so many different levels. Organization and time management can be integral in assisting to relieve some of the Univeristy stress. The majority of pressures college students face are, *but are not limited to; Anxiety( social, general, panic attacks). An unrealistic family expectation. Sudden Depression-lack of motivation, hopelessness, being overwhelmed, low self-esteem, homesickness, loneliness. Relationship difficulties (Long distance, communication issues). You must practice self-love to the fullest while attending College. When I say self-love, a lot of you think I mean going to a spa, or getting your nails or hair done, or shopping. When in reality, at different times in your life self-care can look like many different things. At this time, since you are a student. Your self-care has to be concentrated in self-discipline and getting the proper amount of sleep. All those stressors I discussed are set on by lack of sleep, and not taking the proper amount of study-breaks. Self-love will always be about making the right decision for yourself at that moment. By attending College you are already taking that step. It is a new experience and no one can blame you if you get caught up in the social aspect of it, but there is also a wonderful benefit and joy in finishing something you started and having the self-control and mindset to push yourself to do it. Congratulations on your journey. To bigger and better!
