4th December 23

Prepare to sprout the best study tips this Christmas and keep your motivation soaring! We all know that studying during the festive season can be challenging, but fear not, because at learndirect we are here to help you keep your Christmas spirits up while hitting the books.

Remember What You Are Working For

First things first, let's talk about keeping the drive alive. It's easy to get distracted by all the twinkling lights and delicious treats, but remember why you started studying in the first place. When you find yourself feeling overwhelmed or tired, take a moment to think about how your hard work now will improve your future and open doors to new opportunities. Visualise yourself succeeding in your exciting new career path and let that drive you forward.

Mince Pie Motivation

Set clear goals for yourself and reward yourself with mini celebrations. Let's talk about mince pie motivation! Treat yourself to a delicious mince pie after completing a study session or reaching a milestone. It’s a winner in multiple ways, it will let you feel festive, satisfy your sweet tooth and be a reminder that hard work pays off.


Jingle All The Way

Studying over Christmas doesn’t mean you miss out on all the fun. Why not jingle all the way through your study sessions with a festive playlist? You could even turn this into a festive challenge! Every time you hear a Michael Bublé Christmas song, complete a question from an online quiz on the topic you’re studying!

You can even add some extra holiday cheer into your study routine by sipping on a hot chocolate while you revise. While hitting the books during the holiday season can be challenging, it's important to keep your festive spirits up!

Make Time For Fun

Remember, all work and no play can make studying feel like a chore. So, schedule some time for fun! Take breaks to enjoy your favourite holiday treats, watch a Christmas movie, have a mug of mulled wine or even go ice skating with friends. Balancing work and play will help you stay motivated and energised.

Wrap It Up!

Lastly, know when to wrap it up. It's important to set realistic goals and not push yourself too hard during the festive season. Listen to your body and mind - if you're feeling burnt out, give yourself permission to take a break. Remember that rest is just as important as study time.

Sleigh Those Exams

So grab your textbooks, put on some cheerful tunes from your festive playlist, and tackle those studies with enthusiasm! With the right mindset and a sprinkle of holiday spirit, you'll sleigh those exams in no time! Remember, even though this time of year is filled with joy and celebration, it doesn't mean you can't excel academically too. Happy studying!
