“If you do not think you are studying properly you need to up your game. This is important to you but you are feeling like you are either not living up to what you could do or living up to what you must do to get the life that you want.

To solve this follow these tips:

1. Plan out as much as you can. The best first step is to get busy. We all know the famous saying “Either get busy living or get busy dying” and this holds true for every area of life.

Make your schedule so packed with activity that you do not have time for anything outside of it. DISCLAIMER: That does NOT mean to pack your schedule full with study time or productive activities. You need your rest and relaxation as well, but plan it!

A packed schedule will get you to do what you want, when you want, for whatever reason you want. This is your schedule, your plan, and you are free to make it the way you desire. But having it will remove distractions and stop you from wasting too much time.

2. Use your sleep. Psychologists have discovered that you remember more if you sleep on it. During Rapid Eye Movement Sleep, or REM sleep, our brain transfers information in our short-term memory to our long-term memory.

And studies have shown that if you take a longer nap, or go to sleep right after studying, you will remember more for a longer time. The naps should be at least 90 minutes long to get you through a full sleep cycle.”

I am a teacher crazy enough to nickname my students´ textbook Tom and my students´ workbook Jerry. Yes, I feel crazy enough to refer to our MOODLE space as Moe (the barman at the Simpsons), the bilingual pocket dictionary, D. I (di ai) and the customized worksheets on grammar, vocabulary and stuff, P.Pa.
