@Ben-RO I use Pomodoro as well! I have the worst sense of time so it also helps me keep track of time

 

@RevzZ Hey!! I think I've seen that talk, I definitely remember the monkey and dark playground thing

Hi everyone! 

 

I'm more a learn by reading person so obviously... I read stuff. I don't find writing and rewriting out heaps of notes super helpful for me, but I know it helps many. I just take their beautifully collated notes and read/learn from those. It's not cheating, it's being "resourceful"! Smiley Happy

 

Also, it helps me to be organised, plan ahead and write lists of what I need to do. Being able to see in front of me what I need to get done helps me feel less overwhelmed when it feels like a lot of things in my head, and being able to tick things off as you go feels amazing!

@Ben-RO Yes! I've done the Pomodoro method too! Although the 5 minute break sometimes extends itself haha

I've been struggling with study lately, but usually I like listening to nature sounds or classical music to keep myself calm. I find it hard to study at home with so many distractions so I tend to go to the library. Regular breaks for short walks and healthy snacks are super helpful too

@j95 Hahaha well hopefully you learn some useful stuff here! 

 

And welcome @lokifish and @Randomness!! I'm definitely a list person, especially with bigger tasks or assignments that take a while. You feel so accomplished when you finish a bunch of small things, rather than stressing over one big thing

Yeah I've tried pomodoro too but 5 minutes is way too short for a break Smiley Tongue 10-15 minutes works well for me Smiley Happy

Ooh so we have a few list makers, and some people aren't Pomodoro fans, some are!
