Good organisation really aids focus and concentration. Some people love being organised when it comes to working and studying, but others find it pretty tricky. A well-known quote, “tidy room, tidy mind,” describes how our minds are clearer when the space around us is also clear and organised.
To organise yourself, you’re going to need a few things, such as:
- Your revision books
- Notepads, paper and other writing materials
- Folders, files and ring binders
- Timetables and revision plans
If you can, clear out the entire room you’re using and set it up specifically for revision purposes. Label your items, use colour coding, create a ‘desk map’ or inventory of all your stuff. Do whatever you can to streamline the space towards revision.
If you’re not naturally organised then don’t worry! Get someone who is to help you. Once you’ve organised your setup, the next most important thing to do is to maintain it. File your notes each day, update your revision plans and timetables and keep on the ball when it comes to time management.
The less you stress about the whereabouts of your notes, books and stationery, the better you can focus!
