As we promised, here is our new blog post on the topic
“HOW TO GET YOUR LIFE BACK ON TRACK AFTER A MAJOR HIATUS”
So, first things first, let me tell you what I actually mean by this major period interruption from studies…
Sometimes, very critical situations come up in our life like the loss of a dear one, mental or physical issues which causes us to lag behind our usual coursework and activities concerns. These predicaments are beyond our control and the only thing that we can do is developing some effective strategies and coping mechanisms to deal with them like a BOSS!
No matter what we cannot be put down in our academia by these glitches and hitches in life.
So here are some tips that you can try to alleviate your learning-centric scenario.
- Account for the period of your lag: Open up your calendar and then mark upon the days for which you skipped your notes and check which part of the topics you failed to attend classes or couldn’t understand and make two separate lists for each.
LIST 1:“Notes not written & Assignment due-”.
LIST2:“Topics not understood and exams or due dates approaching”
2.Ask for help: Call up a friend or talk to them in class.Tell them that you need help from them and lend their class notes which you should return to them within a day (remember they need to study too so be careful and don’t hold up their notes just photocopy it or scan it and return it to them).
You can also meet your class teacher or professor and ask them to guide you. Trust me they will be more than happy to help you.
- Be regular henceforth: Be regular in your college or school for the remaining time period and don’t lag behind on the recent notes.
3.Clear your doubts: It’s very likely that the time period when you were in your ordeal/unable to work/ focus or attend classes- you will find those topics hard or unable to conceptualize or understand. Seek you classmate’s help or go directly to the teacher or professor teaching you ask them when they would be free or available to clear your doubts.
4.Stay on top: Don’t let your recent works remain pending. Try to go through the new sections of concepts being taught in the present classes without fail. And if they are based on the previous concepts, ask your friend to explain it to you so as to be able to understand the current topics better.
5.Era of Internet: We live in an era of the internet and with so many video lectures and tutorial channels available on various platforms like YouTube, Khan Academy etc.one can hardly not find what they are looking for. So, the concepts you find a bit tricky and even your friends are unable to explain them properly to you, before going to your professor try to YouTube or Google them.See if you can form a basic idea of what the topic is so that you are clearer about your problem area and can properly explain what’s that you are unable to understand to your teacher or professors.
6. Acceptance: Last but not the least, accept your life and the misfortune you have been through and know that it’s not the end of the world.YOU CAN ACHIEVE ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING!
Try as much as you can to stay POSITIVE. Any nervous breakdown or negative thoughts would only worsen your spirit and in turn, harm you more by keeping you from doing the task at hand. Such phases keep coming and going, and YES, do not forget to share your problems with you friend and family because only they can guide you and help you in much more ways.
With this, I hope you’ll do great and have a speedy recovery from any crisis or breakdown or any low point in your life!
