At this time of year as the end of term creeps closer, it can be difficult to keep up your motivation for studying. In fact, your events and social gatherings are likely to be ramping up, with seasonal events and celebrations on the horizon for the next couple of weeks. As a result, this part of the university term can really drag, and it’s easy to let your motivation slip. But you probably have important deadlines, or even exams to think about before the holiday season. So what should you consider when it comes to staying motivated for the end of term? Well there are several things that you can do to keep your academic year on track, and your student accommodation can really help. As a result, we have produced this guide to the different strategies you can use to stay on track before the winter break begins.
So, how can students stay motivated for the end of term?
To block out the distractions and stay motivated, you should consider:
- Getting more rest- this might seem counter-productive, as you probably have a busy schedule without the added pressure of Christmas parties and shopping. But you need to make sure you get a full 8 hours a night, or as close as possible. A lack of sleep will make you feel even more overwhelmed when you look at your to-do list, and you could end up putting off important study time.
- Making a schedule- the best way to stay motivated is to be organised. A schedule can help you plan out time for different activities, like hitting the Christmas markets, and drinking mulled wine, as well as studying and working on assignments. And if you feel too pressured by a schedule or work timetable, a simple deadline schedule can help you prioritize your study time.
