Well, no matter in which institute you study, which teachers are teaching you self study is a must. Without self-study quenching for success will lead only to nowhere. Here are a few self-study hacks or you may say smart tips which I followed or came to know about during my JEE days:-
I read an article about this which said that when we study on the bed, then our brain gets a signal that we are here to sleep as this is what beds are made for. But instead, we are there to study, so eventually, in that confusion, the sleep signal wins and we feel drowsy.
Never study in front of a pedestal fan or a cooler as the wind coming from it will make your eyes dry and you will start feeling drowsy. Pickup your time that is if you are a night owl or an early riser. Study accordingly.
If you feel lethargic while studying then you can opt for a power nap. It will help you regain your virility. *Pro-tip- If you want to ensure that you don't sleep for more time than required during a power nap, then sleep while holding any object in your hand in such a way that it falls off the bed as and when you lose your grip over it. The moment that object falls down is the time to wake up (taking your phone as the object might blow your sleep faster than anything).
Avoid eating rice or so if you intend to study after your meals as it may lead to sluggishness.
You may use Mnemonics, can break in story form or just write it numerous times to learn anything by heart.
The problem is we used to get motivated very quickly but at the same pace we lose it too. For a constant reminder, you may put a note wherever you look often(like on the wall in the front of your table). Like the quote below is an awesome example:-
The biggest distraction is your phone. To overcome you may download an app named Forest.
Make good, effective and short notes. One may use different colour pens too. We guys forget frequently so your notes should be made in such a way that revision would take the least of the time.
Dude, have faith, have confidence in yourself because, “Having a low opinion of yourself is not 'modesty.' It's self-destruction.” I just love this line by sir Bobbe Sommer. ~THANK YOU~ Sarthak Srivastav
