Set those timers and get to work!
Bwogline: Sandra Lindsay, an ICU Nurse in Long Island, was one of the first Americans to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Monday. The second dose of the vaccine will be given to Lindsay in 21 days. According to the FDA, in people that are 16 or older, this two-dose vaccine has an efficacy rate of 95% (CNN).
Study Tip: A timer changes your study situation from an output-based goal to an input-based goal. You can’t always control the amount of work you get done but you can control how much time you put into a task. Setting a timer for 30 minutes releases the pressure of a full night of studying and makes it much easier to just start if you trick yourself into thinking it’ll only be a short time. Usually, after those 30 minutes, you get into the flow of work and don’t want to stop!
Music: Two great albums to study or focus to are “The Social Network” soundtrack by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross and the “TRON: Legacy” score by Daft Punk.
Procrastination Tip: Make a list of all the content that you want to catch up on over break! Shows, movies, books, and even music! There are so many amazing things that have come out this year and you probably haven’t finished watching The Queens Gambit or listening to Rico Nasty’s new album even though everybody is telling you to.
