But also to those of us who want to watch Netflix but feel too pressured to get the work done. It’s important that you continue to do your favourite activities during exam season.

ACADEMIC SUCCESS

Revising or working all day every day with little to no breaks is a recipe for disaster.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″ background_enable_color=”off”][et_pb_row column_structure=”1_2,1_2″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″][et_pb_column type=”1_2″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″ animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”left” animation_intensity_slide=”10%”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.4.2″ custom_margin=”0px||10px||false|false” custom_padding=”0px||0px||false|false”]

You’ll wish that you could ‘just be done with it’ so that you get back to doing your favourite activities. Integrate your education into your lifestyle.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″ custom_padding=”0px||0px|||”][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.4.2″ animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”bottom” animation_intensity_slide=”12%”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.4.2″ background_color=”#de2020″ background_layout=”dark” custom_padding=”30px|30px|30px|30px|false|false”]

FIND A WORK-LIFE BALANCE

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″ background_color=”#f5f5f5″][et_pb_row column_structure=”1_2,1_2″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″][et_pb_column type=”1_2″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″ animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”left” animation_intensity_slide=”13%”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.4.2″ custom_margin=”0px||10px||false|false” custom_padding=”0px||0px||false|false”]

HOW TO DO LIFE

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_divider divider_weight=”6px” _builder_version=”4.4.2″ width=”13%” custom_margin=”0px||0px||false|false” custom_padding=”0px||0px||false|false”][/et_pb_divider][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.4.2″]School isn’t just about preparing you for the working world – it’s also about learning how to do life. Whilst work and exams are important and you’ll have to do both throughout your life – so is living life. Pausing your life for four years or just living in the summer is a bad habit to get into when you’re in such a formative stage of your life. Learn how to incorporate the things you enjoy doing in your daily life and see how you can find a work life balance between the things you need to do and the ones you enjoy doing.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_2″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″ animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”right” animation_intensity_slide=”8%”][et_pb_image src=”https://myperformancelearning.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/antique-blank-blur-269825-768×576-1.jpg” _builder_version=”4.4.2″][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″ custom_padding=”0px||0px|||”][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.4.2″ animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”bottom” animation_intensity_slide=”12%”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.4.2″ background_color=”#de2020″ background_layout=”dark” custom_padding=”30px|30px|30px|30px|false|false”]

REWARD YOURSELF

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″ background_enable_color=”off”][et_pb_row column_structure=”1_2,1_2″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″][et_pb_column type=”1_2″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″ animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”left” animation_intensity_slide=”13%”][et_pb_image src=”https://myperformancelearning.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/adults-award-best-1059118-768×572-1.jpg” _builder_version=”4.4.2″][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_2″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″ animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”right” animation_intensity_slide=”13%”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.4.2″ custom_margin=”0px||10px||false|false” custom_padding=”0px||0px||false|false”]

SELF REWARDS

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_divider divider_weight=”6px” _builder_version=”4.4.2″ width=”13%” min_height=”18px” custom_margin=”0px||0px||false|false” custom_padding=”0px||0px||false|false”][/et_pb_divider][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.4.2″]

Improve your working efficiency and enjoyment but giving yourself rewards for tasks you complete. Revised a chapter for English? Go for a kick about with your friends. Learnt a topic in biology? Watch an episode of your favourite show. These positive reinforcements will also mean that you come to associate learning with enjoyment – allowing you to keep going longer by wanting to do it.

 

Note:

ensure that the frequency of rewards and the reward-work ratio are balanced. Don’t reward yourself every 10 minutes or give yourself massive rewards for little work.

INCREASE PERFORMANCE AND RETENTION

By going to a task after a break you can go in with a fresh perspective and evaluate what you learn earlier and what knowledge is still missing.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_2″ _builder_version=”4.4.2″ animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”right” animation_intensity_slide=”8%”][et_pb_image src=”https://myperformancelearning.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/adult-balcony-beverage-1230665-768×512-1.jpg” _builder_version=”4.4.2″][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
