How often have you read about upgrading your time-management system by using the Pomodoro method?
Probably more than 100 times. I've dealt with learning how to study for over 6 years., and these are my go-to time management hacks.
🔰 Try these 3 time management tips to stop procrastinating and start studying

I look out the window while riding the train. I let my mind wander. Working the whole day, the brain deserves a break sometimes.
When I then come back to do focused work, I feel refreshed.
I am much more relaxed, unlike when I try to fill every spare minute trying to do something productive.
🏳 #2. Stop with the To-Do List. Instead, write down one single to-do item and do it. Cross it out and write down the next to-do item.

✍ #3. Go back to paper and pencil. On the computer, open Microsoft Word.
There are certainly great tools to help you study; however, these frequently distract us from our actual tasks.

- Use breaks to relax.
- Shorten your to-do list.
