Make Space and Clear Your Mind
Start your study in a clean space or an organised chaos (which we think everyone has their own way of working), with all the essentials you might need and remove any distractions (put your phone on silent or better yet flight mode!)
Find a space that's calm and away from the main happenings of your house so as not to be interrupted. If you’re working outside of the house, be mindful of where you are such as distractions & sound.
TIP: Always pack headphones, this is the easiest way to transform any space that you’re in - drown out distractions and really focus.
Time away from working or studying is actually beneficial in being more productive. Make sure to drink lots of water, take meal & snack breaks, do some stretches or take a 10 minute walk.
You’ll find after just a 10 minute break you're energised and ready to put in another few hours of study rather than pushing through and burning yourself out.
At By Fable, we enjoy using apps like Pomodoro or Flow to get us going for the day. With so much time we spend on the screen, it's important to look out to nature to rest your beautiful eyes while you're pondering your next move...
