Study Skills

This page contains some links to study skills approaches I find useful.

Bullet Journal (5 min)– a way of maintaining productivity – not forgetting to do things – setting priorities – being mindful about your habits (good if you want to change things). Similar to Getting Things Done (8min) but a bit snappier!

Pomodoro Technique – helps reduce procrastination – the idea is to work for 25 min with no distractions (turn off phone etc) then 5 min break. More details in this video (it’s for medical students but useful for other students and writers too).

Strict Workflow is a useful add-in to the Chrome browser that is based on the Pomodoro technique and it blocks social media (or other websites) to stop you mindlessly scrolling rather than working.
