Whether you're in high school or college, just the thought of studying makes you want to get in bed and stay there forever. It can be draining, but here are some tips to help make it a little more tolerable.

1. Whether it's homework or studying, use instrumental music

Even if you don't listen to any music at all while working, I recommend at least trying instrumental music. For me, it helps concentration and makes studying a little more enjoyable. My favorite: Bethel Without Words

2. Don't do it on your bed

No matter how tempting, don't do your homework or study on your bed. You may be comfier, but that just means you're going to get more sleepy and just want to get into bed. Instead, try doing it at a table or desk, although it's not as comfortable, you're more likely to have more energy and motivation to get your work done.

3. Snack

I don't know about you, but I can't concentrate on studying when I'm hungry. Snacks, such as fruit or trail mix while doing your work will keep you from getting distracted by wanting food and help you concentrate on what you really need to be focused on.

4. Don't do it all at once.

Pace yourself and take small breaks in between chapters, pages, etc. If you just keep going for hours, you're going to cram too much stuff into your brain at once and tire yourself out.

Everyone's studying methods are different, so make sure you do what works for you- these are just some things that have helped me in the long run, try them as you please! Good luck this semester- you got this.

Ignorance is actually pretty bliss...

I have been wearing glasses since I was seven years old. When I was young, I loved wearing my glasses. Noticing each individual leaf on a tree or the distinct smile lines on my mother's face was an absolute dream. Now I prefer to take off my glasses at times, despite being considered legally blind. Twinkle lights glow brighter when blurred. It is easier to ignore the graying hairs when viewed in a softer light. All in all, the famous cliche "ignorance is bliss" couldn't be truer.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months.
