If you are a working Student and somehow landed here, I request you please read at least 70% of this post, I promise it won’t take more than 2 minutes…
Why am I asking you to at least read 70%, not 100%? Research shows most visitors don’t even read 25% of the article… 2nd I have been a working student so I think this post might help a little.
Now let’s back to the topic… how to study when you don’t feel like studying!
As we all know A focused mind is able to learn and save more. But what to talk about concentration and focus while we are not even ready to sit with books. Sometimes we literally don’t have any motivation to study, or don’t feel like studying,
This is a natural thing that happens with most of us. So don’t feel bad. You are not alone,
We all go through situations when we don’t feel like studying, or just procrastinate. Usually, this happens when we are tired(mentally), or when we lack self-belief or lack of interest in the subject. These are some of the main reasons which distract us from the studies.
Simply, if you lost the track and don’t feel like studying, then First, you must distinguish between feeling like you just can’t be bothered to study and feeling like you’re burning out.
There’s a difference between feeling a bit tired, bored or unmotivated and actually feeling exhausted.
If you are actually feeling exhausted, or If you are sick or there are some medical emergencies or some trouble in your family, in these cases you may ignore the studies for some time or some days (depending on the need of the study) as it’s also important to look after yourself and your family.
But If you are just a little bit tired, bored, or unmotivated then follow the below hacks to return back to the track and start doing the study.
# Study Little and often
“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” – Robert Collier
When we think of doing any big task, like finishing a whole chapter or Memorizing full formulas. It seems very difficult and requires lots of hours,
Being working students, we have very limited free time for self-study.
Generally, we like to spend those free time doing things we actually love, like going out with friends, Gaming, or Watching.
What happens, When we lose studying habits for any reason, we then need to form that habit again. We often sit with study materials but don’t study, and perhaps may not, unless we divide the big task into small pieces.
When we divide a big task into small pieces then the same thing becomes easier.
So first divide the big task into small pieces and tell yourself that all you need is 30 minutes for one subject or for memorizing one formula.
By doing this, not only will you have more motivation to start the task, but you will also try to get them done in that time block as fast as possible, make sure that you only spend those 30 minutes studying.
First select any big task you want to complete, for example memorizing 30 vocabulary words.
Then divide that big task of memorizing 30 vocabularies into small pieces like memorizing 5 vocabularies in 30 minutes, then 10 vocabularies in 45 minutes, and next time 15 vocabulary in 1 hour and so on.
But you must start. Even if you are able to do or complete the first little task, you will be motivated to complete the next task and so on.
# Motivate yourself towards study
Sometimes due to lack of inspiration and motivation, we lose interest in studies,
If this is the case, try to find the reason behind your procrastination. and inspire yourself, or find someone(on YouTube/medium/Quora or in the family) to trigger your interest in sitting with those books which you want to read.

# Exercise for refreshment
Do light exercise or small activity after every 1 or 2 hours of continuous sitting to help you relax and re-energize.
You can go for a talk with your family or friends, or play games or watch some short videos. and then come back to work. It will re-energize you and will help you to focus better.
# Avoid distraction
There are many things that distract us while studying, and the biggest distraction is definitely the cell phone. so think about what you can do to minimize the distraction.
You can put your phone on vibration mode or Silent but I think putting the phone’s data off during study time would be a good option among the above.
I personally put my phone’s data off sometimes and keep the phone away from the desk.
You can do that too If it works in your case.
# Reward Yourself every time you complete your tasks
Yes, you heard right reward yourself every time you complete your tasks.
A reward doesn’t need to be big, it can be as simple as watching your favorite video, or playing a game. or eating a favorite snack. do try this it relay works.
Do implement the above ideas honestly. Hope this will show some light…
but don’t research for the next tips or ideas on google/Bing unless you apply this.
First, apply this, and if the above tips don’t work then,
You must search on google/Bing how to study when you don’t feel like studying or how to study when you don’t want to.
and one more thing do not check other posts on this blog because you may distract.
You can definitely remember the blog name IntellectualGyani.com and can come again after completing your tasks.
