*Specifically when you are self-educating*
#1 Change your laptop/computer background to a humorous photo of Keanu Reeves so you start your studies with a laugh.
#2 Study on comfy porch furniture so you soak up the sunshine and bird calls.
#3 Motivational clapping/homeschool hi-fives before writing your papers.
#4 Make Dodie Clark songs your study breaks. ( https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL36142F51F19698FC )
#5 Use The Last of the Mohicans soundtrack as studying music.
#6 Create highly specific school to-do lists, with due dates.
#7 Blueberry tea.
#8 Read textbooks in bed. Read them under the covers before falling asleep and then right away when you wake up. You can almost trick yourself into thinking that it is a book you are so engrossed with that you want to read it as much as possible. Plus, being cozy is nice.
#9 Quote scenes from Persuasion to your laptop. “I am determined, and nothing, you may be sure, will ever persuade me otherwise!” “Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been; but never inconstant!”
#10 Watch this: https://vimeo.com/128292930 “If I am supposed to love God with all of my mind and He commands me to find rest in Him, then shouldn’t Shalom be in my studies too? . . . Rest in God in your academics; seek the Holy Spirit in your studies.”
But for real. Finals Week – Spoken Word by Stefan Vandenkooy will change your life.
