New Year Is Best Time To Improve Student Study Habits

Setting realistic goals is one technique for improving study habits.

Starting a new year and a new semester should include a new year’s resolution to improve study habits like procrastination, cramming, multitasking, and organization. Here are suggestions on how to improve study habits: 

The Pomodoro technique is a beneficial study habit. This technique allows a timer to be set for 25 minutes to complete necessary work. As a reward, a five-minute break is taken. Depending on the workload it can be repeated. The Pomodoro technique can support students’ productivity by motivating them during a burnout session. 

Finding resources to study for tough classes is an essential aspect. Asking questions is the best resource for students who have difficulty studying. Websites including Quizlet and Khan Academy have a variety of resources on many topics. 

Feeling distressed after cramming assignments and projects can feel unmotivating. Freshman counselor Ms. Lu says, “Maybe we’re waiting until the last minute to do it because it is a lot to handle right now…” 

Motivation is a vital aspect when completing work for school or extracurricular activities. Using self-affirmations before and after completing a task can help with productivity and the feeling of accomplishment.  “…When we set realistic expectations for ourselves and break things down into smaller pieces it helps us stay motivated, then we can say ‘Oh yeah I did this small piece of it,’ and check it off the list,” Ms. Lu continued. 

Facing obstacles when studying can feel challenging. Once it is faced by using resources and solutions, hopefully, you can feel a little bit of relief.
