Every bit as important as the physiological factors we've just discussed is psychology. In this final section, we look at some methods for improving your productivity by harnessing the power of the mind.
1. Adopt a positive mental attitude
It's difficult to overstate the power of a positive mental attitude. Adopt a positive outlook on your studies, try to see the interest in everything and envision a favourable outcome to each bit of work (for example, imagine how pleased your teacher will be with your essay after all the hard work you've put in).
2. The power of routine
Getting yourself into a routine of eliminating distractions and studying at set times of day will help high levels of productivity become habit, making it less effort. If your brain expects to be studying at a particular time of day, you'll find it easier to get into the right frame of mind for working productively.
3. Strength in numbers
From time to time, organise study groups with your friends who are studying the same subjects as you. Not only will you learn from each other by comparing notes and interpretations, but it also eases your burden because you're not always having to motivate yourself to study alone.
4. Reward yourself
Don't forget to reward yourself for all that hard work at regular intervals during study periods; for instance, you can have a bite to eat at the end of a chapter. This gives you something to look forward to and helps strengthen your motivation to work productively.
