Scheduling Study Time
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Are you a morning person or a night owl? Do you growl at anyone who talks to you before 11 A.M.? Do you droop about 3 P.M. but then get a second wind? These factors are all important as you consider when to study. Along with the million other things you have to do each day, you need to schedule some study time in addition to homework time.
 
2     When deciding on a study schedule, take a look at your whole day. Some of it is already scheduled for you. For example, you know you have to be in school between the hours of 8 A.M. and 3 P.M. It takes you an hour and a half to get ready and get to school. You don't get home until 3:30. So, from 6:30 A.M. until 3:30 P.M., your day is pretty busy.
 
3     What else do you do during the day? You probably eat lunch and dinner at certain times. Is there a special TV show you like to watch? You need to schedule study time around these activities.
 
4     Next, consider when you are most alert. Can you get up extra early and study before school? If not, you'll have to study after school. But are you burned out when you first get home? Do you need just a little break from school work? Maybe you're so tired, you need a nap. You need to take these things into account when scheduling your study time.
 
5     How much sleep do you need every day? Most people need between seven and nine hours each night. Sleep time is part of your daily schedule. It is not a good idea to study right before bedtime. You will probably not be very alert. If you are struggling with your studies, worry might keep you from falling asleep.
