#WellnessWednesday: Setting goals for studying at home

It’s #WellnessWednesday again, and we’re glad it is because otherwise, we’d have no idea what day it was.

The days in lockdown are passing in a blur and it’s all starting to feel a bit too much like Groundhog Day.  

If you’re trying to study at home, it can be hard to set boundaries. Days drift into evenings, weekdays drift into weekends (and you drift back to the sofa…). So how do you carve out time for keeping up with your studies, exercising, and giving yourself some downtime when all your activities are taking place under one roof?

Planning is key. Write down what you want to get done each day, and allow time for relaxing and other activities as well. And tell a friend: you’ve got a 75% chance of achieving your goal if you’ve shared it with someone. Our friends at Fika have got these tips:

Although it may sound restrictive, planning your time actually frees up headspace. You’re giving yourself permission to take the time you need for each activity, knowing that you’ve got time scheduled later on for the other stuff. Check out what Aaron has been doing:

“Past me told me what I’m doing today, so - let’s do it.”
