Take Breaks

Having 5 minute breaks every 30 mins (or at least every hour) will help you to recharge and be motivated for the next session! I’m guilty of not taking enough breaks when working sometimes because I want to get everything done as soon as possible but it isn’t healthy to do! If you are feeling unmotivated, take more regular breaks to make your work sessions more manageable!

Find The Time When You Work Best

Finding the time when you are most productive means that you’re more likely to get all of your work done! I find that I work best late mornings and early afternoons so I try and schedule my work during that time! Also, consider if you prefer to work in one long block (with rests of course) or smaller blocks throughout the day!

Change Your Scenery

Changing your scenery for studying or doing blogging helps a lot because there are fewer distractions and you have a fresh mindset to work! You could work in the library if you’re a student or go to a coffee shop (you can also treat yourself to a drink/snack) and do some work!

Time Block Your Week On A Calendar

I’ve started recently doing this using google calendar and it’s so helpful for actually getting work done (rather than procrastinating) because you are treating studying/work sessions like you would with lessons/shifts rather than an extra thing to do! I use colour coding for each type of task/event so I know at a glance what are I’m doing at a certain time in the day!

How To Time Block

First, schedule in all your appointments, lessons, shifts, events etc. for the week so you know when you’re busy and can’t do any work. Then plan when you are going to do studying, chores, blogging, etc. around everything and try to be as specific as possible about what task you are going to complete so you know before the time you are supposed to start doing it!

Do A Little Bit Of Work Most Days

It’s okay to have days when you feel like you don’t want to do any work but just doing a little bit of work is so much better than doing none! It also gives you more time to do other things throughout the day! For example, try to do an hour of work a day rather than three hours in one day and none for the next 2 days! This mostly applies to weekdays if you have a similar schedule each day and it’s fine to do more work at the weekends because you have more time!

  1. I’m so stubborn that when I time block I go out of order because I don’t like that this planner is telling me what to do. So I never follow my time blocks 😅. But I learned that I am most productive when I do whatever I want from 6 am – 12 pm and homework from 12:30 pm – 7:00 pm
