KI Health promotion
Physical activity is essential for physical health and wellbeing as well as psychosocial health.
Keep physically active, ie take walks, work out or do yoga at home!
Tips for studying at home
- Plan - make a schedule, to-do lists- for what you are going to do when. Plan your week, your day. Plan when you are going to have breakfast, when you are going to study, when you will be taking a break, including lunch break, plan your physical training and when you will socialise.
- Set realistic goals and pat your self on the shoulder when you have achieved the task.
- Get your priorities straight, do the difficult and complicated things first otherwise it is easy to get stuck on trivial and as it turns out, time consuming matters (also known as Parkinson’s Law of triviality)
- To avoid the temptation, leave your mobile phone off when you study.
- Work during the morning, even students tend to be more efficient in the morning than during the evening or at night.
- If you find it hard to concentrate use the Pomodoro-method
- Challenge your self to get new good habits, start small, maybe one push-up a day before breakfast every day, or a walk before you go to bed at night, try to make it into a routine, expand on it.
- Be nice to your self and be nice to your future you. Take care of your self now, eat, sleep, work out and study.
