Hey all, since the current state of things seems to be looming closer and closer to a full lockdown (and many of us will probably have to start studying at home), I thought it'd be a good time to start a thread on any tips/suggestions/stories on your learning experience from home.

Feel free to share any tips! Personally I work the best at my school library/any public library and I'm probably going to struggle with self-control when I know I can take a nap at any moment. o(* ̄▽ ̄*)o Anyways, hope you are all staying safe!

1. Don't study on your bed.
Why not. I tend to do that sometimes :p

Like when I'm really stuck on a question I'll just walk around or lay down on my bed and just think real hard. I find when your laying down all your energy can be put into just thinking which helps me problem solve better.

Ideally you need to keep your bed just for sleep as otherwise it can create problems sleeping for you in the future.

Honestly I struggle greatly with studying at home, even during HSC (2017) and I still have the problem today... PC games/youtube and nintendo switch and phone are all too easily accessed

EDIT: I remember Cold Turkey being a decent computer app to block stuff. Studying through facetime MIGHT be useful with friends ONLY IF you guys don't just chat/gossip the entire time

In HSC I only studied in home but my bad habits led to sleeping late a looooot of times so I was tired most of the time... These days I try to study at WSU (the one near parra station) or at uni when I can but I still study at home sometimes with a lot of distractions.

Same!! I just can't focus at home because I normally study outside (library/cafes). If I used app blocking stuff, I find myself just wandering around looking for snacks. Then I pick up a book or something as a form of procrastination that doesn't make me feel trash about myself 😂
