Every individual has phases of studying where they feel boredom or dislike towards studies and keep slacking off their time doing things they enjoy the most. Students often continue to do things that interest them rather than studies. It happens sometimes that one develops a dislike for a particular subject, or concept just the complete concept of studying because one is unable to understand it completely, thus disliking studies entirely.
Different students have different learning abilities and techniques and methods of learning and pursuing studies. If the students are being taught in the way they like, then they may enjoy studies as a fun activity and not a burden or compulsive activity. Studying in a comfortable atmosphere, with the people one likes, or even starting with topics of interest can help in developing an interest or even love for studying.
If interesting study methods are included in the school, then students might not lose interest in the first place, and they would look forward to attending classes, taking part in the competitions, getting good grades in the exam, and much more. Hereunder are a few tips as to how to create interest in studies :
- Including extracurricular activities alongwith studies
- Snacking and sipping alongwith studies
- Relating studies to the real life
- Changing the point of view towards studies
- Making studies a creative concept
- Developing games or quiz related to studies
- Taking frequent but short study breaks
1.Including extracurricular activities along with studies
Including extracurricular activities like creating art out of the content to be learned and remembering through that art, acting out a skit or playing with characters can also help to remember a lot of names for the subjects like history, creating games and playing them along with studies with the contents of study can also be of much help. Thus studying can also become a fun activity with the help of such fun extracurricular activities.
2.Snacking and sipping alongwith studies
Snacking healthy food items like fruits, nuts, dried fruits, salads and all sorts of nutritious snacks can be much helpful in nibbling along with studies and spending that time pleasantly also promoting energy levels. Sipping a hot or cold beverage while studying, can refresh both mind and body as it retains oxygen levels in the body which boosts up the energy level and provides new strength to study. Snacking and sipping along with studies boosts energy levels, stabilizes blood glucose, and stimulates metabolism.
3.Relating studies to the real life
Finding the relevance of what one learns and where is it helpful may boost interest in that certain subject or topic. Once one finds relevance of what is being taught to the real-life necessities then one can easily enjoy that subject. For example :
- Relating certain physics logics to real life tricks like creating live working models. Like for understanding refraction of light one can creat a model using a prism and a beam of light.
- History classes can help in understanding popular ethical books, events in history and much more.
- Watching certain educational documentaries and movies to understand certain subjects or topics.
4.Changing the point of view towards studies
In order to love something, one needs to be affirmative about it and develop a keen interest. Reframing a mindset about studies can also help in loving it and having fun while studying. One has to initiate or take an interest in studies then and then only one can love studies. Changing attitude towards learning may help in loving it, for example rather than considering studies as a compulsive burden one can change the viewpoint and view it as an opportunity. Instead of thinking “have to” one can think “choose to” as a change of point of view.
5.Making studies a creative concept
Making study a creative concept can be a very modest way of conducting information. Creative concepts always capture everyone’s attention. One can paint, make songs, make a skit and act out the concept, or even make tunes and rhythms out of the study content.
