UNI LIFE | Concentration, Studying + Procrastination Tips

I am in the middle of summarizing topics, reading texts and studying for exams. If I am not being consequent, then I will get very easily distracted and will procrastinate until I am tired and don’t have any energy left for the actually studying.

That is a very bad habit/characteristic of myself and I am constantly trying to work on it.

I asked you a few times now on my Instagram if you have any tips and wow, I was flashed  by all your comments and helpful tips. That’s why I wanted to write them all down and share a list, YOU created.

I hope you like this post and that it will help a lot of us!!
