  • How can I stay motivated to study during pandemic?

    Are we in a life threatening situation?​

    No, As per current data, global mortality rate of COVID19 is around 5% or only 50 people could die out of 1000 (For India its around: 2.9%). remaining 950+ people will recover with the help of adequate medical care​

    Just imagine you are one among those 950+ people!​

    Nevertheless, make sure you are following strictly all the guidelines regarding COVID19 like hygiene practice, social distancing, staying at home, etc


    What ‘if I get affected’ by COVID19?​

    Follow the guidelines of GOI regarding COVID19 issued from time to time.​

    Be aware of your feelings like guilt, regret etc. These feelings make you feel depressed and affect your recovery rate​

    Focus on your strength to fasten your recovery.​

    Kindly note that what ‘if I don’t get affected’​ (bcz, ‘what if’ is anxiety eliciting thinking pattern!)​

    Watch your emotions: Your fear could escalate your perception of the risk involved and anger makes you perceive the risk less, makes you highly vulnerable ​


    What if one of my parent get affected…​

    Again anxiety eliciting thinking pattern!! ​Drop the thought process​

    If they get affected by COVID19, still I ask you to stay calm and follow guidelines and do as per the medical advice ​

    Remember that you are not alone. The entire Government machinery/medical fraternity is with you or with your parent in the recovery process!​


    Am I doing enough to prevent it?​

    Do as much as possible! Hand hygiene, social distancing…​

    Remember that no human being can change his habit suddenly!​

    It takes lot of effort in terms of being aware of it, stay calm, practice it again and again​

    Stay calm and slow down!( I emphasize stay calm because your anxiety will make you do the opposite, where you touch your eyes, nose and mouth more often!)​

    Feel that you are under control. Feeling of loss of control makes you feel guilty, hopeless and worthless​


    How to improve my immunity?

    It takes time and it is a gradual process!​

    Nutritious food, sleep, exercises, and positive thinking will take time to enhance your immunity​

    Not to worry: Doing some thing is better than nothing! Start now and feel good within yourself!​


    Media attention!​

    We talk about the importance of media in the society, and nation’s development. But the irony is too much of media exposure-especially digital and social media will make you feel distressed​

    The research says that people with the highest exposure to media coverage of negative incidents experienced more acute stress than who actually exposed to the real incidents!!​

    So lesser the media, higher your ability to study!​


    Motivation to study depends…​

    Your performance will be high, if your course matches:​

    Interest (passion)​

    Aptitude (your CET/PESSAT score, approximately)​

    Personality & Discipline​

    Set goals: Both short term and long term​


    Be SMART!!!!!

    Short term goals depends upon:​

    Your goals should be realistic​

    Make your goal as much as specific​

    It must be measurable​

    Some body must have achieved it or achievable!​

    Sufficient time should be there to achieve​


    5R for effective studying

    Read for 45-50 minutes and take break for 5 minutes​

    Recollect - Write down few points/formulas or use mind mapping​

    Reflect: reflect upon a what you have read after every concept or paragraph​

    Revise- after the end of every study period and at the end of the day, every week, etc​

    Reward-Yourself with a compliment, sweets, snacks or anything you like​


    Take it as a challenge!

    Whatever I had given is research based and it will help you a lot​

    If you don’t understand, call me or other counselors​
