How to Motivate Yourself to Study?

1. Try Easy Study techniques:

To motivate yourself to study can become hard sometimes. A simple solution is to ask yourself “how can I make my learning easy”? If you can make your learning styles easy, studying becomes interesting and easy for you.

You have different study techniques like mind-mapping, auditory methods (podcasts, speeches), visualization methods, abbreviations/acronyms, note-taking, etc. If you like visualization, you can learn your subjects through flowcharts, doodling, pictorial mind map techniques.

Study-Tip: Adopt a suitable learning style. It helps in motivating yourself to study.

2. Don't Multitask:

Multitasking with subjects will make your studying hard. Also, if you keep procrastinating, you will end up having too much to study. Avoid these two habits.

Study-Tip: Prepare a to-do list. Prioritize your subjects and study schedule.

3. Identify your productive Hours

Another easy way to motivate yourself to study is, identify when you feel productive and active to take out your books and study.

Study-Tip: Early morning hours are best for studying. Depending on your education (school/college), you can pick the evening study hour time.

4. Try POMODORO technique:

A simple way to begin studying is to follow the POMODORO technique. You manage time and studies become productive.

Study-Tip: Finish one or two POMODORO cycles every day exclusively for studying subjects. Don’t include your assignment and other related works. Spend only for studying.

5. Prepare a “Don’t do this” List:

Prepare a list of things you don't want to do while studying. It can be like getting to pick up things often, looking for reference books, stationeries, checking smartphones, etc. Before you sit down to study, avoid these things.

Study-Tip: Mute notifications during your study time. Give a break to your social media and internet media streams. Make sure you convey your study hours so no one disturbs you.
