6 Tips For Studying at Home Effectively

After the decision of suspending schools and universities for two weeks, schools have started offering substitutes and online lecturing to carry on with the semester.

Since most of us were pretty excited about this, we’re here to remind you that schools are only suspended not canceled! So, here are some tips for you to effectively study at home and be more productive amidst all the tempting distractions at home.

1. Create a to do list

Make sure that you have all the things you need to do listed in front of you, it’s also important to create a schedule and make sure that you have strong internet connection.

2. Have A Designated Study Area

Find a calm spot at home and turn it to a study corner, make sure it has good lights and vibes so that it can encourage you to study. If you can’t seem to focus at home, there are a lot of co-working places that you can turn to or maybe even hit a library!

Also, try to reserve your bed for sleeping and avoid studying in it!

3. Create a timetable

Create a timetable that you will feel obliged to follow and even include in it time for Netflix and sleep, so that you feel encouraged to finish quickly and enjoy some free time. Set reasonable limits for how much time you spend studying each day, and break your study session up into manageable amount of time.

4. Take online lectures seriously

Don’t take online lecturing lightly and take it for real, close any tabs of social media and make sure to dedicate your internet bundle to online lecturing. Take notes and listen carefully, encourage your friends not to skip classes.

5. Use a timer

If you are someone who get distracted easily, then set a timer so that you can keep track of time and make sure that you’re sticking to the timetable that you have set. Challenge yourself to finish a certain amount in a fixed time, that way, when you take a break, it certainly will be guilt free!

6. Test yourself

Keep testing yourself and study the notes right away as the notes will still be fresh in your mind. Take your teacher’s permission to record the lecture so that you can listen to it repeatedly, in case you missed anything or didn’t understand something during the lecture.

Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox churches have announced the suspension of masses and other services in both Cairo and Alexandria as of Monday and the suspension will last for a month.

The suspension comes in light of the rising numbers of Covid-19 cases among clergymen and churchgoers.

The Coptic Orthodox Church on Saturday released an official statement that says the suspension includes Sunday’s schools, meetings, services and masses, and that priests in each church are allowed one mass weekly with a minimal presence and a maximum of five deacons only.

As for funeral services, they’re allowed to be held but with the participation of only one priest and one deacon and of course the family of the deceased. However, the halls that are designated for mourning services will be closed until the improvement of current conditions.

For Baptism services, the maximum number allowed are four member of the baby’s family.

The statement added that study at institutes and educational centres will carry on but with a reduced maximum of 25%.

As for the dioceses, each bishop get to decide what is most suitable to the health situation in his diocese, in partnership with the congregation of priests.

We urge all worshipers to remain safe and adhere to all the precautionary measures needed.
