One Trick That Will Help You Accomplish Your Goals

The New Year was just around the corner…. Umm… 3 whole months before!!!

Who doesn’t love fresh beginnings? Whether it’s a new day, a new session at school/ college/ university, a new designation, a new job, a new course or whatever… beginnings refreshes you (kind of). One feels more productive and enthusiastic at the beginning. Beginnings have the power of making it all look so nice and easy.

When you have to begin a day, you plan for it to make the most of it. An ideal day is the one where you get it all done and still have plenty of time for relaxing, recreational activities and just enjoying the life. But usually the day ends up as the one where a moment of silence is one where you just fall upon your bed at 2 am. Period.

What It Feels Like To Be A Teacher

“Teachers are so lucky na…?”

“They don’t have to spend sleepless nights preparing for the tests.”

“They spend their time getting dressed up and loading us with more and more homework and loads to learn and practice for tests.”

“They enjoy life and don’t let us do so. But why? Are they crazy?”

These and many others are some of the thoughts we have towards our teachers from a very early age.

As we move towards maturity, we do realize that they don’t hold grudges against us neither are they our enemies but still we hook up to the fact that they just don’t understand how difficult it is to be a student! Or they have forgotten!!

Exam Preparation Made Easy

Exams are the bane of a student’s life. During exam season you find questioning the person who gave the concept in the first place. Students are full of innovative and creative ideas about examining an individual’s intellect without the exams. Just ask any student during his/ her exam period and you’ll be surprised!

Many researches that are not in favor of exams are remembered with facts and figures by students than the actual material they are required to remember for their exams!

Are exams really so bad? Should they be banned? What other measures shall be implemented? Let’s keep this discussion for a later time and focus on the ‘dreadful’ exams and how to combat them peacefully. (Yes, it’s possible)

Accept The Reality

Accept that no matter how much you hate exams (or that subject or the teacher) you have to appear for your exams and it’s the only way that you are credited for your intelligence (or lack of it). Prepare yourself for giving the exams and performing your best in them. Use positive self-talk. Be realistic and focus on your studies.

Set Up The ‘War’ Zone

Think of them as a war and be prepared to win over the enemy. Prepare a spot in your home, equip it with your study materials and necessary stationary that you will be needing during preparation and get ready to spent most f your day in the war zone. Keep your guides, notes, and other study material in an organized way in the place so you don’t have to waste time looking for a pen or some piece of paper during your devoted study time. Keep water within easy reach and sip on it from time to time to stay hydrated and active. You know we all get sleepy even at the sight of books! Keep snacks within your reach if you prefer munching while studying but don’t spent time munching rather than studying. And choose your snacks wisely.

Dedicate ‘Chunks’ Of Time For Studying

Allocate enough time in your schedule to cover up all the material. You may feel like ‘darya ko koozey me band karna‘ but you have to endure it. If you haven’t prepared the year round (or half-year for mid terms) you have to put in larger amounts of time into your studies to cover up everything. Stay focused and be fully concentrated towards learning and grasping the material instead of cursing and bad-mouthing teachers, books and exams.

Focus On The Hard Topics

Reverse plan and focus first on the difficult subjects so you can cover them with a much-needed relax state of mind. Go for understanding and learning, rather than rattay maring.

Practice Problems & Diagrams

No matter how highly you think of yourself, do practice formulas, problems, equations and diagrams. Sometimes a point gained here and there can be a lifesaver!

Don’t Prepare ‘Importants’ Only

No matter how lucrative it seems, don’t ever fall prey to preparing the ‘importants’ only and leaving the rest to fate. Remember “Allah helps those who help themselves”. So please give ample time to each section and prepare well.

Don’t Fall Victim to Over/ Under Allocation

Some students focus too much of their time and energy on one topic/subject/ area and then haphazardly prepare others. Don’t fall victim to over allocating or under allocating your time and energy. Plan carefully.

Social Media And Tech Will Still Be There

Rid yourself of distractions. Be smart and avoid your smart phone like plaque. Social media will still be there after your exams. Focus on studies rather than socializing, sharing and being tech-savvy.

Eat well & Sleep Well

Eat and sleep well to ensure proper health and active brain. Stay active. This will rid you of ‘boredom’ you fell during exam preparation. But don’t overdo on sleeping and eating. Remember time is precious and eating and sleeping well doesn’t require a lot of time.

Good luck for your exams!

6 Benefits Of Hobbies That Shall Not Be Ignored

Hobbies are our interests in varied fields that keeps us nourished. Since very early times we are advised to pursue at least a hobby or two. We enjoy our hobbies but with time we lose track of them, getting too busy in everyday lives.

To emphasize the value of something we shall know it’s benefits. Here are some of the numerous benefits of pursuing a hobby.

Hobbies define your future and your interests. Everyone is eager to know about their passion. Your passion is your hobby. You fill up your leisure time with something that relaxes you and that you enjoy. This is your hobby. Your passion.

5. Gives A Break.

Who doesn’t need a break at times? Tiredness, stress, tension, all work no play makes us groggy and not so pleasant to be around with. This increases the loneliness and makes us more irritated than we were before. The solution? Get a break with something you enjoy. Or put around in other words, enjoy taking a break. Do something you enjoy solely for yourself and it will refresh you and you pursue your hobby. Hobbies to the rescue!

6. Earns Money.

30 Ways To Use Post-It Notes

I LOVE Post-It Notes!! Who doesn’t? I don’t know of anybody who does not use them. And there are many who just love ’em. I had a stock of the post-it notes in multiple colors and sizes. Still they are never, ever enough. There’s always room for more to stock up on!

A unique low-tack pressure-sensitive adhesive allows the notes to be easily attached, removed and even re-posted elsewhere without leaving residue. Originally small yellow squares, Post-It Notes and related products are now available in an array of colors, shapes and sizes.”
