Study hack

24 Hours Vancouver - - EDUCATION -

If check­ing out of so­cial me­dia is a con­tin­u­ous chal­lenge for you, con­sider set­ting lim­its with an app like SelfCon­trol.

SelfCon­trol works by block­ing dis­trac­tions such as Face­book, Twit­ter, and In­sta­gram on your lap­top or phone.

You can pro­gram SelfCon­trol to block th­ese ap­pli­ca­tions for a set time pe­riod so that you can fo­cus all your at­ten­tion on the task at hand, whether that be reading, study­ing, or com­plet­ing an es­say.

This tool can be very use­ful when you’re strug­gling to get into a com­fort­able study ses­sion.

GETTY IM­AGES

Oc­to­ber can be one of the busiest months of the year for stu­dents, but there are ways to man­age ev­ery­thing.
