Online Learning: Look after Yourself

Healthy Mind and Healthy Body

Keep your body healthy

  • Eat healthy food
  • Sleep at least seven hours each night
  • Try to get up at the same time every day in the week
  • Exercise regularly
  • Get out, even for a quick walk, every day

Healthy mind

  • Have a routine
  • Set your learning objectives the day/night before so you have a plan for the day. The objectives have to be SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound). For more information on planning check the Place and Time section. 
  • Take regular breaks – they help concentration!
  • Enjoy your studies ant take interest in what you are learning!
  • Try to maintain a positive outlook. The more positive you feel, the better you will learn, then more positive you will feel, and better you will learn... it's a virtuous cycle!
