it takes both hard work and hard play, in my opinion.

I put in 20 hours studying this weekend. Ended Sunday with some time in the hot tubs drinking vodka with a splash of soda water for color for a few hours.

Set time goals and meet them, then enjoy some downtime so you can do it all again the next day.

Thats the way to do it...

I dont have a laptop...so tentative test center is my work place.... most of the time i doddle around, browse the forum. Usually at home i chill with TV.

however i am procrastinator... sleeping and day dreaming keeps me busy when i am stretching my cerebral muscles on Verbal.

This. Busting some @\$\$es (especially in PvP) helps me to get my stuff together for some reason.

I understand you, sometimes it is very difficult for me to focus. I start a timer for 25 minutes, and I try to learn all those 25 minutes without being distracted. When 25 minutes have passed, I take a break for 5 minutes and then again mark 25 minutes. helps me a lot. I also sometimes read essays click here other students, it helps me with inspiration and gives me more strength.

I just started college; 2nd semester, and studying is probably one of the harder things I've had to figure out. As someone else mentioned you could try rewarding yourself. I also make a schedule- like I'll say I'm studying for 30 minutes and then I'll stop, go get food or socialize etc, and get back to it. I've found the most productive studying happens when I give myself long ish breaks

How to Overcome Laziness in studies?

I know most of you are lazy when it come to so called "Studies". You always try to avoid studying by wasting your time unless and until a time come when you have no option but just to face it any how.

Frankly speaking i also don't love studying because it doesn't create any interest or excitement to attract towards it.

So what's the solution to the most critical question "How to Overcome Laziness in studies?"

Not to be tensed more, here i will show you step by step ways to overcome laziness during studies.

First of all you need to find a time for "When" to Study. So our first step is as following,

Step 1 :- "Study at morning to overcome laziness"

It is been said when you study in early morning then you don't feel to lazy to study.

That doesn't mean to wake up at 4 and start studying better to complete your sleep fully and wake up probably at 6:00 or 6:30 am.

Do all the morning activities and start your study at 7:30 to 8:00 am.
Try it for month or two then see it really working or not. If you find it right and you are not feeling lazy during study then Bingo!!! you have made it.

If you don't, then try it for more 3-4 month see the results again. You will definitely get somewhat improvement in the result.

Let us move to the next step probably "Where" to study also matter in overcoming laziness

Step 2 :- "Your location of studying"

Is it really matter on which place or location you are studying?. Well it does, the surrounding atmosphere of yours plays a major role on your study.

Just tell me one thing, you will either love to study at the place which is near to the garbage or dumb.

Or you will love to study at the place where you are surrounded with all the natural greenery and a small beautiful sitting arrangement in between.

Definitely, 100% of us will choose the second option as simple as that.

Because somehow what you feel in you is indirectly connected with the work you do or which you are going to do.

If your surrounding is amazing and healthy then your laziness for study will automatically reduces and will come to an end.

Let move to the third step which is "How" to study? which is also a part for overcoming laziness.

Step 3 :- "Your body posture while studying"

What this actually means is that what's your posture of studying whether it's laying down on bed, hanging on your sofa set, on chair or floor.

Whether you are on bed or chair your body posture should be straight. (as shown in the picture)

Your back portion should be as straight as an arrow but not to put more effort on your back in order to make it straight. A slight bend matters very little.

By making it in your regular practice, you will automatically adjust yourself is such a posture without been forced by your brain.

This will also help you not to feel asleep while studying or any kind of gesture of being lazy.

So, Body posture will also make a little effort to overcome laziness while studying.

Let's move to our fourth step "How" much to study for not getting bored.

Step 4 :- "Study less but study smart"

Well continuously studying for 4-5 hours does make a sense rather than to count "How many hours did i study?" one should go for quality study. Better to study 2 hours than 4-5 hours but wisely and smartly.

Giving yourself a little break also helps you to overcome laziness while studying.

Take a break for 10-15 minutes then further continue studying. This will maintain a great deal of interest and a long duration for studying.

Remember, don't just study so as to get marks in the examination. Learn something from it and see what changes you can make to improve your life more and more better.

So study less study smart can also decrease your sleeplessness.

Lets move to the last step which is our fifth one "How" to make study more interesting

Step 5 :- "Connect study with some characters"

What this actually means is that, If you feel that it's getting more and more boring just change your way of studying.

Make it as a story, assigning different different characters to each of them accordingly which you wish to be.

Let me explain you in little deep, suppose a little boy is studying numbers 1,2,3,4... in math and he is not loving it all.

So what to do in such situation to make it more interesting for him to remember. You just need to assign a cartoon character to those 1,2,3,4 numbers.

Give number 1 to Doremaon, number 2 to Nobita, number 3 to Sunio.....etc

What will really happen is that when the boy connect those numbers with the cartoon characters which he love, he remembers it more easily and effortlessly without any pressure.

He will learn the numbers easily because whenever any cartoon character name been spoken then he will automatically remember that particular number which has been assigned to it.

So, this is also one way to overcome laziness during studies.
