6 Easy Tips and Tricks to Make Lockdown Work for You and Your Grades!

  1. ROUTINE MATTERS

Develop a study routine. Plan your afternoons and weekends so that you can cover all your subjects weekly or even bi-weekly. Add a schedule to your digital calendar so you get alerts on your phone or computer when it’s time to move on. The more structure you put in place the easier it will be to stick to!

 

  1. IS IT STUDY OR WORK?

 Understand the difference between school work (completing tasks and exercises) and study (intentional review of concepts, developing study scaffolds and testing). It’s important to make sure you’re doing both study and keeping up with your school work and content. 

 

  1. KEEP IT MOVING

Exercise. Daily. Keeping active improves alertness. 

 

  1. HAVE A KIT KAT

Take breaks. Often. Generally even older people need a break every 45 – 60 minutes. Take 5 – 10 minutes to refresh, stand up or move. Change your scenery (even if it’s looking out a window or moving to a new location in the house) Have a garden? Great place to study!

 

  1. WAKE UP ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BED

Rest. This is different from breaks between study periods. Ensure you get enough sleep. Sleep deprivation impairs learning and so is one of the most important things you can do. Be sure to practise digital hygiene – keep screens and devices out of your bedroom if you can. Don’t look at screens at least 60 minutes before bed (Or if you really need to, because 60 minutes is asking A LOT – make sure you use a yellow filter).

 

  1. COMPLETE THE LOOP

Get Feedback. Even the highest achiever can improve. Find a peer or a tutor who can give you feedback to help improve your learning and performance.
