Should you study in the morning or at night?
Life gets busy. You may have a part-time job, play in a sports team and belong to a club like guides or venture scouts. It's hard to fit it all in, and then when something exceptional comes along, like a camp or a weekend sports festival your studies somehow drop to the bottom of the list.
What do you do when all your free time is taken up by things other than you studies? Well, one thing you can do is change the time of day when you do your homework or revision.
One reader came to me with this very dilemma. This is what she said:
” I sometimes have choir concerts or scout camps at the weekends so when I have to move my study hours to fit them would it be better to study later at night or earlier in the morning?”
Well, I made a video to answer this question.

A word of warning!
Whatever you do I don't want you start sacrificing your sleep for your studies or for anything else. Sleep is sacred – it's what helps to keep your mentally and physically healthy and it does wonders for keeping your mind sharp and embedding what you've learned the previous day. So, whatever you do, don't start depriving yourself of sleep in order to fit everything in on a routine basis. If you can't get enough sleep because there's too much going on in your life that's a sure sign you need to cut-back and focus on your priorities.Sleep is sacred - it keeps you healthy, keeps your mind sharp and embeds what you learned that day Click To Tweet
If you're struggling to balance your studies with all the other things going on in your life, and have that healthy situation where you're hitting the grades you want but you're also able to chill out and relax at the end of the day or do the things you really want to do at the weekend, then maybe you should consider working with me.
