Weekly logs are helpful when creating study plans. These add a more in-depth study schedule in order to prepare for exams and assignments approaching in the coming week. Write due dates underneath the day the exam or assignment is due. Split your studying, by chapters, over a course of a few days to a week in order to maximize study time and efficiency.

Create daily logs to allot specific times in the day to accomplish your goals. Set small and precise goals throughout the day, such as reading a chapter or outlining a paper. Make sure to give yourself a few minutes to relax by implementing a healthy study break such as yoga, exercise, meditation, or eating a healthy snack. This can help increase creativity and lower anxiety and stress levels during finals!
