I believe I must start by stating that the popular Pomodoro Technique isn’t as
effective as people think. For those who don't know, this technique includes setting
25-minute work intervals with short breaks in between them. I tried using this
technique for a couple of weeks, and failed miserably. More Related Questions

 Ask New Question

(I spilled the Pomodoro Sauce. For good.)

Instead, a better style of work would be the “Flow Technique.”

At school, students like me are always given homework which might not hit our
appeal. However, other tasks, or usually those that are chosen by the student – such
as extracurricular activities – are of our appeal.

So, once I get home and start doing my homework, I don't set an alarm. I don't stand
up every hour to make sure my “blood is moving,” or that “my mind is able to focus
better.” I don't “set an alarm very 30 minutes to make sure I'm drinking a certain
amount of water.”

I sit down and start working. Done. When I feel like I want to stand up, I do so.
When I feel like eating, I do so too. Essentially, this technique involves reaching
FLOW as fast as you can by completely immersing yourself into the task at hand.

For those who don't know, FLOW is “the mental state of operation in which a person
performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full
involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity.”[1]

In fact, this psychological phenomena can be expressed in a graph – which I hanged


in my room:

Often times, the greatest option in life is to aim for activities and tasks that reach the
highest level of challenge and your highest level of skill. In this graph, that would fit
in the FLOW category – where both your skill level and the challenge level of the task
are high. Consequently, by working on achieving flow while doing your tasks, you are
much more likely to go through a 10+ hour-session of work successfully. I've done it
some times.

Here's a video explaining more of the psychology behind this:

Flow, the secret to happiness

Also, you should definitely watch THIS one as well.

Still, many of the tasks that schools provide are viewed as uninteresting and useless.
Therefore, it seems like flow is impossible to occur, since the challenge level is always
disproportionate to the student's learning. However, it is not!

Whenever you reach the Relaxation or Apathy section in the graph above, flow can
still be reached due to the amount of importance you give to it. You can do
this by creating a dependence on your work. I do this by thinking that every single
task has to be prioritized equally. You may do it a different way, though. Again –
working styles are created by the individual, which is why the Pomodoro Technique
might not work for everyone.

Overall, the “Flow Technique” is much more likely to assure one's productivity when
working, as it helps people to construct a bigger sense of focus in their lives –
something so elusive nowadays that not even “Pomodoros” are able to solve.

Cheers!

Study Management

Energy and Activeness

Sleep

1. Study Management:

(a) You can choose late night study or early rise in the morning whatever suits you.
You should not force to yourself to follow any particular pattern.

(a.1) Read Silently or aloud Keep Changing if other not work.

(b) Priorities Study: Start your study on every day with very important chapter.
Anything you want to understand very difficult point, or want to remember very
important chapter.Early morning time is best for Maths or Science.

(c) after 2-3 hours morning study you can complete your 'daily routine work’s.

(d) Flexible: Be very flexible, observe your mind. If any time you feel uninterested
or uneasiness with subject, then CHANGE the subject. Do not force yourself
otherwise this feeling may increase and your energy may go down and the whole day
may ruin.

(e) During study never stuck on any question or point for long time. If you
will do, then it may drain your energy, your mind will start stressing. Once your
mind’s waves are disturbed it may hamper your all day's study. Instead mark this
point to take next day in morning schedule.

(f) Brain Game: Now you may feel little bit uncomfortable. After 10-12 hours of
study. Give your mind and body rest. Play 5-6 min any simple Brain Game not
more than this. It will do muscle exercise of your Brain. It will help in relaxing your
mind and generate concentrate again.

(g) your last schedule of the day should be finished with Revision.

2. Energy and Activeness:

(a). To maintain energy level and activeness in body and mind for whole day and
without losing your efficiency and productivity; you should take proper nutritional
and protein diet. Milk,soybean, cereals, dry fruits, vegetables, fruits. Take break in
each hour of study and productively utilize to Relax, Recall, Retain and Re-
energize

(b) To keep energy level take interest in study, enjoy your study, use creativity and
mnemonics and don't take burden of study.

(c) Smartly schedule your study

(d) Don't eat too much at one go instead consume all your proper diet in 6-7 meals.

(e) Take healthy and nutritious breakfast: like milk, nuts, fruits, sprouted

(f) If you need take light meal or fruits or milk as per body your requirement.

3. Sleep: first you have to curtail your sleep in such a way that it increases your
efficiency as well. Sleep very comfortable so that next morning you will feel fresh and
energetic. You will be able to concentrate on your study.

“ Smart Sleep Management System”

4,5 and 6 hours sleeping Cycle: I used to sleep one night for 4 hours, next night 5
hours and then 6 hours then again starting with 4 hours.

Eating habits: Avoid oily foods, junk food, fast foods, and other eatables with zero
nutritional value like cold drink chips chocolate ice cream.......

In this way we take more calories than what we need.

To digest all these food, we need more energy (yes food give energy and also consume
energy.)

In digestion process oxygen is required. And our mind also need proper supply of
oxygen. (Oxygen in blood circulation and not environmental oxygen)

So when we consume lot of calories oxygen supply to mind become weak and we start
feeling sleepy.

Here's an experiment that I did on MYSELF for my mid semester exams. This
experiment has by far the best study results ever ( that is speaking for myself ).

Aim: To concentrate on studies without distractions.

Apparatus :

1. Relevant book for the subject.

2. One notebook.

3. Class notes.

4. An empty room. ( literally empty, or as close to it as possible).

5. A study table and a chair.

Theory :

All one needs to do to fully concentrate on studies, is make a grand gesture.

“You are the master of your fate,The captain of your soul” because we
have power to control our thoughts. Thoughts are powerful things when mixed with
definiteness of purpose,persistence and BURNING DESIRE. Start your day with
the thought of achieving the goal and bam you won't understand how fast time
passes. Be determined and be clear what you want in life. 10hours is nothing. I have
seen toppers studying 14–16 hours a day. Trust me or not but they have same brain

The key to the best system is consistency and having fun with what you are doing.

First, have a positive attitude.


Know that the material that you are learning is not impossible and that you can do it.
So many people have learned it before you, also thinking they couldn’t do it, but they
have done it and have realized it was not as hard as they were making it out to be.

Second, be prepared.
Find what you need to make sure that you don’t have to leave once you start
