3: Combine with Pomodoro/Animedoro Technique

Working for long hours without taking breaks can overwhelm you and unmotivate you. 

Set a timer of 25/40/60 minutes where you focus only on your work/study. Then take a break of 5/10/20 mintues where you stop studying and you do something else ( watch a show, go outside, eat, review your distraction page etc...)

Check this to know more about the pomodoro and the animedoro technique.

In the A box write all the topics that you're unfamiliar with ( The ones you'll want to focus first).

In the B box write down the topics you know but that do need revision.

In the C box write the topics that you know pretty well.

You can use the D box for random notes ( Tips, exams etc.)
