coffeebreak #1

While you’re reading this you either have a cup of coffee or tea while sitting in front of your desk OR planning to do so in the next hour. I’m a coffee lover and while I’m drinking my coffee many thoughts cross my mind that I preferable would like to write down. That is what I’m going to do here on my blog … my #coffeebreak posts ☕️ 😍

Stay focused in year 2016

As my younger brother had to study more than usually the past weeks, he had difficulties to concentrate fully on his studies. I tried to help him and showed him what I’m usually doing for concentrating and more efficient studying. 🙂 Here are my top 3 suggestions:

  1. Drink 

Ahmm… NO! not that kind of drinking! 😀 I love coffee as you can see .. but it doesn’t need to be coffee… anything you like to drink might help you to focus on your work and NO I don’t mean caffeine that may push you to be more efficient. Before I start with my work I always make coffee or tea and place them right next to me. It might sound weird but the fact that I have the drink next to me is a motivation factor for me to start easily. It is somehow a sign that lets me know ‘and now you have to focus’. Gently drinking next to my work calms me down and let me feel more relaxed. ☕️

  1. Take a time out

Taking a short walk or taking naps help your brain to revise what you’ve learned. I am a big fan of naps. Naps are like medicine for me. Doesn’t matter if I’m exhausted, stressed, sad, angry or somehow involved in an emotional way, I always take a nap and afterwards I feel like I’m new born. 😎  I guess many of you already know that but I think it’s always worth mentioning it. 😀 As I am too lazy to take short walks, I usually open the windows for like 2-5 minutes and take a brake. At the beginning even my brother laughed at me because he didn’t believe me at all but then when he tried it out many times he told me that I was right . 😀 Nevertheless, the most important thing is that you give yourself some time to recover from your work and studies. We are just humans. 😉

  1. Listen to music

I don’t think there are people outside who don’t like to listen to music. Everyone has a different tune preference, classical music, jazz or whatever but I’m sure all of you love to listen to your favorite artists whenever they have the opportunity to do so.  I love to listen to Sam Smith, Shawn Mendes, Rihanna or even to listen to some random relaxing music on YouTube. 🎼It makes me feel more relaxed and studying doesn’t seem that boring anymore. Classical music has been shown to reduce anxiety and tension. (Whereby I have to say that it depends on what I’m studying. If I have to study something by hard, I prefer a quite area for studying.) Music can also be distracting for some people; if you for example feel like singing along instead of working! :p

That are my Top 3 suggestions for you on how to focus better on studies and work… but nevertheless, everyone has own preferences … so let me know which approaches you’re using! 😀 … So let’s start to work, work, work, work, work,…
