Studying Tips and Tricks

Oh my gosh, second quarter has gone by so fast!!! I can hardly believe that exam week is coming up. Hopefully some of you can relate to being totally stressed out and all over the place when exam week comes around… well luckily I have some tips and tricks that can get you through the week! These totally work and are super easy!!

CHEW GUM- I’m not completely sure how this works, but when you chew gum your mind can focus better and you can concentrate more!! In my school we aren’t allowed to chew gum however when you are studying this is great!!!

COLORFUL NOTES- Next time when you are jotting down notes make them colorful by using colored pens or even using some colored pencils! Next time when you have to look over 30 notes it won’t be so bad! Taking colorful notes is super important because when you read them over it will be fun and more eye catching instead of everything blending together into one boring blob!

TYPE/REWRITE ALL OF YOUR NOTES- Trust me, I know what yo are thinking…,”why would I make more work for myself and rewrite¬†ALL of my notes!” This helps you remember what you learned! How it works is when you take the time to process and rewrite your notes it registers in your mind. Trust me I don’t want to do the work either but this is so helpful!!

STAY ON TOP OF YOUR EXAM DAYS- All you will need for this is a whiteboard! For better results I would recommend putting the whiteboard on the back of a door, so you won’t forget to check it! Put down what days all of your exams are and what you need to do in order to study!! This is a super way to stay organized and on top of things!!!

I really hope you guys enjoyed this tips and tricks video! Comment down below what blogs you want me to post next! ūüôā

Resolution Tips and Tricks

Oh my god it’s already 2016! It seems like everything is going by so fast! ¬†I’m not sure about everyone else but for me, here’s the drill… I make a list of resolutions and a month later I have totally forgotten about them! Well here are some tips and tricks to help you!

Inspiration Board: The whole point of an inspiration board is to fill the board with pictures that remind and motivate you to keep up with your resolutions! It can also remind you of your 2016 goals throughout the year!                                                    Materials:

  • Canvas (some kind of board)
  • Pictures of your goals (ex. goal-exsercise picture- treadmill)
  • Pushpins

Directions: Print out the pictures of your resolutions and pin them to your board! Voila! The inspiration board is super easy and is super cute! This is the way to go if you need to be reminded of your resolutions!

Fitness Sticks: The idea of the fitness sticks is to have the jar pick out what workout you will do instead of copping out and doing a super easy workout! This will push you and also help you accomplish your goal of exercising more!                                                                                                                                                     Materials:

  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Mason jar (any kind of container/jar)
  • Marker

Directions: On the popsicle sticks write out different workouts you could do! Some examples are 20 pushups, 10 crunches, 50 jumping jacks, or a 30 minute jog! You put the finished popsicle sticks in the jar and that’s it! This is optional but you can also decorate the jar to make it look more colorful and also make you want to pick from the jar! This is so so easy and affordable for everyone and the best part is that you are exercising and challenging yourself!

Junkfood Dump: This isn’t exactly a craft but this is so helpful!! Although this may be difficult it’s time, get rid of all those tempting cookies and sugar foods! This will make it easier for you to eat healthier, so when you are craving the junkfood nothing will be there for you to eat!! ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Materials:

  • trash bag
  • commitment

Directions- Go through your pantry and fridge and dump out all the junk food! That’s it and trust me it works!

Sticky Note Mayhem: Pretty much put stick notes all over your house reminding you of your resolutions! All you will need is some sticky notes and a marker and start writing!!!

I hope you guys enjoyed my tips and tricks! Comment down below which one you found to be the most helpful!!
