Honestly, everyone goes through phases that makes them an unfocused student. Here at James Clemens, we are in the final 9 weeks. I’ve some tips below on maintaining your good grades and being healthy before summer!

 

1.Make sure to set aside time for sleep. When I was a freshman, I prioritized other needs over sleep and it truly made me a worse student. My tip for you is to always get 7 hours of sleep or more in order to focus on classes during school.

2. Snack! Snacking is honestly one of my secret hacks to staying focused in class. Eating food in class constantly gives me some energy and lets me feel like I’m getting a reward for working hard.

3. Exercise and drink lots of water. It’s really rare to hear people saying this, but exercise and water can have A HUGE impact on your ability to focus. When I started working out more this week and drinking more water, I have been doing more work and studying. For the people that absolutely hate exercising, I suggest exercising while watching a TV show. For those people that claim to be “too busy” – you can always exercise while watching a quick Crashcourse video on YouTube.

4. Listening to music while studying. For me, listening to music while studying allows me to focus on my tasks, like homework.  By doing something I dread, like homework, with something I love, listening to music, I’m able to quickly finish work.

5. Taking breaks. I love taking breaks often and this helps me recharge and feel energized again. It is important when you take breaks that you stick to 5-10 minutes. If you don’t time yourself, you will soon find yourself distracted and not doing work like you are supposed to.

Try all these tricks out for 2 weeks and let us know what happens in the comments below!
