Tips on how to study when you are not in the mood:
1: Write a worklist for your study
This is my key point and a very interesting thing, which can push your mind to study. Now what exactly you have to do?
Well, if you don’t want to look at your books now then take a pen and a blank paper and write all the topics and subjects which you have to study now.
You must be enjoying it while making this list. After making it, think your list like a goal or target which you have to complete now, and start studying. I am sure, this will motivate you to study now.
One more thing, when you complete any topic from the list then, make a cross(❌) on the list because making a cross on the list will show you, you’re completing the list and your target.
2: Make your room studying likable
A proper and dedicated place for study really matters for making your mood to study.
So, where you study and as I said, Is your surrounding supports you to study?
If you don’t have a proper place to study then somewhere you don’t feel like studying. So find any corner of your home that should be distraction-free where no one can disturb you.
Even if your phone is not a part of your studies keep aside your phone while studying. It can grab your attention.
Note: If you study at home then instead of studying on the bed or couch, use a study table and chair. Using a study table and chair will not make you feel sleepy and bored although it can make your mood to study.
But if you already study according to this tip then look at the next tips.
3: Think about your dreams and the benefits of studying
This is quite stressful but a really helpful tip for you. And I think you might have understood what I want to say.
If you’re studying today it means you want to fulfill your dreams and want to have a bright future. And as you know this all thing you can get when you’ll study effectively.
So take a 5 minutes break and visualize your dream and the benefits of studying. This will definitely motivate you to study and become serious.

4: Change your way of studying
If your mood still doesn’t change then you should change your way of studying.
At this time, maybe you might have to read a book but you can learn that topic on your phone or laptop too by reading articles on Google or watching it on YouTube.
Isn’t it a good way to learn and understand a topic?
In my opinion, it’s an awesome way to study and understand any topic when you don’t want to read a book. But make sure you should not get distracted by notifications or any other videos or something while studying.
5: Don’t study a boring or hard topic at that time
Now it’s a very important point that I have already mentioned in my reasons list. (Check now in the above bullet points)
There is no brainer if you have to study a seemingly boring subject or a subject in which you’re weak then you will not willing to study now.

But in any case, if you have to study that subject now then learn first how to study a boring subject and make it interesting.
