A study session in general comprises a perfect combination of all study materials and an appropriate time slot for all the subjects. During the study session, we may come across various situations where the student wanders in his study room from one place to another in search of books, pens, notes, or other study materials. This kind of behavior during the study session creates a disturbance and diverts the attention from the study. One has to set up all the things prior to sitting down for study. In this article let us highlight the points about the perfect study session.
A study session is incomplete without a perfect study timetable. A study session is decided and completely based on how the timetable is set up. One must note that a timetable must not be inclusive of only studies and activities related to the course. A perfect timetable comprises an ample amount of time for studies, time slots for every subject, a little extra time for backup, and a few hours for activities such as sports, hobbies, reading newspapers, magazines, solving a few GK questions, some time for daily workouts, etc. A timetable that includes all these elements makes for a perfect study session.
Keep it Organised
An organized study space saves time and keeps studies on track. An organized study space consists of all the study and subject-related books, writing materials such as pens, pencils, notes, geometry boxes, books, and a writing pad. All these must be kept in or near our study space so that one avoids wandering during the study hours. Things that are not related to studies such as comics and gadgets should be strictly kept away from the study table. A spacious study table enhances good concentration in studies.
Divide and Study
We all know that covering the entire syllabus at once is a tough job, and not a sign of good study practices. When a chapter is studied, then it should be divided into a few parts and studied accordingly. This technique helps one to study more in less time and one can understand the concepts clearly. For instance, when a concept of maths is taught; one first has to understand the basic theory behind it, know its applications, and then one can focus on solving the questions of maths. When one is thorough with the concepts, different types of questions can be solved by using reference books related to the concept. Instead of just solving everything at once, answering a few questions on a daily basis helps in remembering the concepts, as well as keeping in touch.
Take a Break
We all know that all work and no play make Jack a dull boy. In a similar way, all study and no breaks can make study monotonous and boring. A tiny break after every forty minutes or so is necessary. During this break, one can relax, do a small stretching exercise, drink a glass of water or just scroll down the newspaper. A bigger break can be taken after two hours of study where one can have a snack, a short nap of fifteen minutes, or read a few pages of a novel. One can take this break when one finishes a target or completes a concept or chapter.
Every person needs compliments, rewards, and appreciation for achievements.
Learners can reward themselves after achieving a few targets like finishing a chapter, solving numerical in Physics, solving a few grammar questions in English, and so on. The rewards may include a small piece of chocolate, an extra fifteen minutes of play, painting, or pursuing a hobby on that day. This helps in achieving more goals and enjoying the rewards.
A study session must be interactive, playful, and with activities. A monotonous study session makes the learning process lengthier and tiresome. One must inculcate smarter study techniques and progress in such a way, that even for prolonged periods of time, it helps in keeping the mind and body engaged while studying. A study session varies from one learner to another and must definitely include time for personal interests, play, sports activities, and hobbies. A session with all these elements is called a perfect study session.
