holy shit brother thanks a lot i didnt see the threadreally helpful thread if you haven't seen it yet
Also pomodoro technique seems legit because you don't want to burn yourself out
thanks my g what are u studying rn?i had a problem with this for a long time. Assuming you eat healthy and get plenty of sleep. This is gonna sound stupid but you just get rid of your distractions and try as hard as you can to focus and you might fail over and over but you will slowly increase the time you can focus. And you also have to do it every day to keep it sharp or else it will start going down. I would litetally time myself and record the times i was focusing on a journal and saw it increase through the months and months. It's a slow process and it's not something you progrsss in a linear path. so it's better to track the accumulative time you focused weekly than daily. If you think about it , if you were focusing on something every day for year your ability to focus will go up. If you are on vacation or days you don't have HW just read books or study cuz it still helps train your focus. Also something big that helped me is not going from a very stimulating thing like watching a movie or playing video games to studying. The studying will seem incredibly boring in comparison. But if you study first without the crazy stimulus in the beginning then it's alot smoother transition. This method actually changed my life, i was actually a loser at school most of my life till i figured this out I Hopefully it helps , grid hard my dog ,you will get to where you wanna be .
For me, I would always motivate myself by telling me it will be worth it in the end.especially those who study stem or something similiar, how the fuck do u push through when its hard and boring and ur unmotivated?
I drink like a redbull but it doesnt work for me anymore
thanks manI have been studying for 3 days straight now after not doing anything for 5 months. My advice is just get through the first 8 minutes, after that you'll get into the flow and it won't feel like torture and after a bit more time it'll seem like time is flying. The first 8 minutes are BRUTAL TORTURE, but if you can get through em you will survive.
