Panic mode!!

So today the panic set in.

Currently Im studying for my childcare qualification, whilst simultaneously studying for a degree and working. Im not naive in knowing that so many people juggle all these things plus more. All i can say is hats off to you if you’re managing all of the above!

My childcare qualification was something I had started whilst working in a preschool, however I now nanny privately. I have to say this has changed the dynamics of my studies dramatically. Working independently looking after multiple children means I no longer have that constant support network of fellow colleagues to fall back on or simply ask for a hand. Its also limited the amount of free time I have to actually sit down with my head in the books.

Today the sudden realisation of how little time I have left hit me like freight train. I sat and thought ‘you’re going to fail this miserably’ and couldn’t shake the feeling of already being disappointed with myself.

I had my usual morning workout which sedated some of the panic. But the nagging feeling of failure was lingering still. So, I got down to it. I set myself up with my books, laptop, and a large cup of tea…ready to put my brain in to gear!

(Woah…dirty screen šŸ˜•)
It took a good hour for me to get into a rhythm, but I managed to complete quite alot in the 5 hours I spent on my work. Sometimes I forget that actually my mind works well under pressure, its just the overall anxiety that sets me off balance.

I need to find tips and techniques for motivation and time managment when it comes to studying. How do you manage your focus? Any wisdom welcome šŸ˜Š

  1. When I’m trying to focus or get something done I like to listen to good music that doesn’t have any lyrics so I don’t get distracted. Also, I will set little goals as I go along depending on how much I need to get done. Lastly I’ll take a few minute break every 20-30 minutes to give my brain a rest to keep from overloading. I hope some of these tips work!
