They study for a degree {or just|or simply} {to finish|to end|to complete} their {homework|prep|preparation|school assignment|schoolwork}, assignments and obligations. Some students {want|need|wish} to genuinely study. {but|however} {soon|shortly|presently|before long} they lose their interest {and give|and provides} up.

Earlier {i was|i used to be} {one of|one among|one in all|one amongst|one in every of} the second {type of|sort of|kind of|style of|variety of|form of} students. {but|however} this moment came in my life {when I|once I|after I} {decided|determined|set} {to prepare|to organize|to arrange} for Union Public Service Commission examination (it {is considered|is taken into account} {one of|one among|one in all|one amongst|one in every of} the toughest exams in India).

I {prepared|ready} my mind {in this|during this} direction {and started|and began|and commenced} {studying|learning|finding out}. Suddenly {i realized|i noticed|i spotted} {people that|folks that|people who|those that|those who|those that} study {12|twelve} hours {a day|each day|every day|daily|on a daily basis} for this {exam|examination|test|communication|communicating}.

Making your studies {interesting|fascinating|attention-grabbing} {is very|is extremely|is incredibly} {important|necessary|vital}. {because|as a result of|as a result of} {after|when|once} 2-3 hours {we|we have a tendency to|we tend to} tend to lose our interest and {do not|don’t} {want|need|wish} {to study|to review|to check} {further|additional|more|any}. {and we|and that we} waste our whole day.After {struggling|troubled} for 2-3 months, I started experimenting on {how|however} {we can|we will|we are able to} generate interest or {how to|the way to|a way to} {make|build|create} even {a boring|an uneventful|a monotonous|an ordinary|a humdrum|a run of the mill} study {interesting|fascinating|attention-grabbing}. {studying|learning|finding out} {is something|are some things|are a few things} {we|we have a tendency to|we tend to} all {have to|need to|got to|have to be compelled to|ought to} do. {there is|there’s} no {alternative|various|different} to being educated.

Trust me, these tricks, that I {me|Maine|Pine Tree State|ME|American state}ntion here helped me {a lot|tons|plenty|heaps|loads|a great deal}. {now|currently} I {can|will} study 11-12 hours {in a|during a|in an exceedingly|in a very} day with {much|a lot of|abundant} interest. {you will|you’ll|you may} {know|grasp|understand|recognize|apprehend} this through {5|five} steps that I mention below.

Step 1. {lessen|reduce} your Burden of {a long|an extended|a protracted} {syllabus|course of study|program|programme|curriculum|information|info}

Long {syllabus|course of study|program|programme|curriculum|information|info} or {piling|pile|spile|stilt|column|pillar} {up of|from|of} books {will|can} {always|invariably|continuously|continually|forever|perpetually} distract you and {lessen|reduce} your interest. {so|thus|therefore} here {you need|you would like|you wish} {to work|to figure} {smartly|well|neatly}.

First and foremost, {read|scan|browse} your {syllabus|course of study|program|programme|curriculum|information|info} {thoroughly|completely|totally}.
Divide your {syllabus|course of study|program|programme|curriculum|information|info} in {small|tiny|little} {parts|elements|components} – monthly basis {and then|then|so|and so} weekly {and then|then|so|and so} {daily basis|day to day|everyday|commonplace|daily|routine|usual|each day|day after day}.
This way {you make|you create} {a plan|an idea|a thought|a concept|an inspiration} of study in your mind and set a target for yourself.
Focus on {daily basis|day to day|everyday|commonplace|daily|routine|usual|each day|day after day}, topics {which|that} {you have|you’ve got|you have got} {scheduled|scheduled |regular} for that day. {focus on|specialise in|specialize in|target|concentrate on} {completing|finishing} those on {the same|an equivalent|a similar|identical|constant} day.
Rewards {you will|you’ll|you may} get {after|when|once} following these steps:

Your mind {generally|usually|typically} gets {prepared|ready} {when you|once you|after you} {make|build|create} {plan|arrange|set up} by yourself of {completing|finishing} things and it starts acting {accordingly|consequently}. {psychology|psychological science|science|scientific discipline} says, your mind {always|invariably|continuously|continually|forever|perpetually} pokes you or reminds you {about|concerning|regarding} things {which|that} {you have|you’ve got|you have got} planned for yourself.
It will {remove|take away} the {heavy|significant|serious} burden of {syllabus|course of study|program|programme|curriculum|information|info} and {make you|cause you to} {more|additional|a lot of} {focused|targeted|centered} {to complete|to finish|to complete} your daily schedule on time
It works like this. {when you|once you|after you} {know|grasp|understand|recognize|apprehend} that it’s your duty {to buy|to shop for} vegetables for home {every day|a day|each day|daily|on a daily basis}, you {get ready|prepare|make preparations} for market and {think|assume|suppose} “come on let’s {do this|do that|try this} {first|1st|initial} and be free”.

So it {also|additionally|conjointly} happens {when you|once you|after you} {plan|arrange|set up} your studies.

Step 2. {find|notice|realize} {the right|the proper|the correct} Time {to study|to review|to check}

  1. {after|when|once} dividing {syllabus|course of study|program|programme|curriculum|information|info} {choose|select|opt for} {the best|the simplest|the most effective} time for studies.

For example: I {generally|usually|typically} get distracted in evenings {because|as a result of|as a result of} {people|individuals|folks} and friends {come|come back|return} {to visit|to go to} home {mostly|principally|largely} at {this time|this point|now}. {this period|this era} {is mostly|is usually|is generally} for snacks, tea/coffee and chit-chat. {so|thus|therefore} {this time|this point|now} {will not|won’t} {give you|offer you|provide you with} peace, {which|that} {is quite|is sort of|is kind of} {required|needed} for studies.

Utilize {this time|this point|now} for social media. {this way|this manner|this fashion} {you make|you create} social media {time slot|slot|time interval|interval}, {like you|such as you} have {made|created} for studies and {you will|you’ll|you may} not get distracted {during|throughout} study time.

  1. Divide your study time in sessions.

For example:

1st session would be – in morning (time {you can|you’ll|you’ll be able to} decide)
2nd session – in afternoon
3rd session – in night

  1. {now|currently} divide your {daily basis|day to day|everyday|commonplace|daily|routine|usual|each day|day after day} {syllabus|course of study|program|programme|curriculum|information|info} (in {first|1st|initial} part) in these sessions.

(One {advice|recommendation} I {can|will} {give|offer|provide} to you is {make|build|create} {every|each} slot for {3|three} hours. {because|as a result of|as a result of} at a stretch, one {can|will} sit {for three|for 3} hours. {make|build|create} it a habit.) – {you can|you’ll|you’ll be able to} follow {this advice|this recommendation} if {you are|you’re} {preparing|getting ready|making ready} for competitive exams like UPSC, SSC, CAT, GMAT etc.

Step 3. Time {tracking|trailing|pursuit|chase|following}
This is {the most|the foremost} {important|necessary|vital} trick one {can|will} use. It helps {to keep|to stay} {tracking|trailing|pursuit|chase|following} study time, session wise {or you|otherwise you} {can also|also can|can even|may also|may} track it hourly. Here {you can|you’ll|you’ll be able to} use a time {tracker|hunter|huntsman}.

The best {part of|a part of} time {tracker|hunter|huntsman} is, it {gives|provides|offers} you graph on weekly basis and {you can|you’ll|you’ll be able to} compare your today’s actual study time {with your|together with your|along with your} previous one.

This way {you keep|you retain} yourself engaged in studies and improve yourself {every day|a day|each day|daily|on a daily basis}.

The best time {tracker|hunter|huntsman} I got is Toggl.com. There {are|ar|area unit|square measure} {other|different|alternative} time trackers too like clicktime, dashable, clockify etc.

I am attaching below {my own|my very own} Toggle {tracking|trailing|pursuit|chase|following}.
Step 4. {relaxing|restful|reposeful|quiet} mind
It’s {very important|vital|important} {that you|that you simply|that you just} relax your mind to regain energy.

Use {evening time|night time|already dark|getting dark|dark} for {relaxing|restful|reposeful|quiet} and rejuvenating your mind {completely|utterly|fully}. {this will|this may|this can} {give you|offer you|provide you with} {more|additional|a lot of} energy for your next study session.
Take power naps of {half|[*fr1]|0.5} {an|Associate in Nursing|AN|associate degree|associate} hour to rejuvenate your mind for next session.
This trick {also|additionally|conjointly} helps some people: {to take|to require} {10|ten} minutes break {for every|for each} {50|fifty} minutes of study. (but {personally|in person} I feel distracted by this trick)
Sleep well for 7-8 hours.
Drink {plenty of|many|lots of} water {in a|during a|in an exceedingly|in a very} day and {also|additionally|conjointly} {during|throughout} your study sessions.
Step 5. Neat and Well {organised|organized|unionized|unionised|union} place
This is also a trick to increase your interest in study. If your books are well organised according to your plan and study table/place is neat and clean you will find that the place attracts you for studies. And you will feel more positive vibes around yourself.
Make another list of your ‘completed topics’ and stick it near your ‘to do topics’. This will make you feel that your target is not far. Also it will give a satisfaction that you are completing targets on time.
The list of ‘completed topics’ will increase your interest to do more.

Every student has own strengths and weaknesses. While you are preparing your plan, keep your strengths and weaknesses in mind. Do not make unrealistic plans, which you cannot complete on time.

For example: If I know that I can complete only 3 topics in a day, and I make a plan to complete 5 topics per day, I won’t be able to complete my target and rest 2 topics will become a burden for next day.

In this way I have 5+2 i.e. 7 topics to cover in a single day to keep me updated with plan.

These topics will never get completed and here you will lose your interest slowly. And finally you will come out with no plans in your hand. You may also lose interest in studies because most of the topics are left behind.

So plan according to your strengths and weakness and act accordingly.
