Before you begin, take time to get yourself in the right frame of mind. Yes, this means taking a break before you study! Go outside for a change of scenery, do some stretches, or spend some time sorting out your study space – whatever you think will help clear your mind before you hit the books (or computer!).
When you’re ready, make a plan of action. It can be hard to get started when you feel overwhelmed by the amount you have to do, so try breaking it down into mini-tasks. The best part is crossing them off as you go – it’ll motivate you and give you a well-deserved sense of achievement!
