🩺 As a pre-med, medical student, and now a resident doctor, I often need to do work during the evenings after a busy day at work. Whether it’s studying for board exams, creating content, or conducting research, it’s important for me to make the most of the time I do have! Here are some ways I stay focused:
✍️ Create a schedule: Making a schedule or to-do list for the night can help you stay focused and on-task. Prioritize the most important tasks and set a specific time frame for each task.
✍️ Take breaks: While it’s important to stay focused, it’s also important to take short breaks to prevent burnout. Use breaks to stretch, take a walk, or do something that relaxes your mind and body. This can help you return to your work feeling refreshed and energized.
✍️ Set up a dedicated workspace: Having a designated workspace can help you get into the right mindset for productivity. Make sure your workspace is comfortable, well-lit, and free from distractions.
✍️ Use time management techniques: Time management techniques like the Pomodoro technique or time blocking can help you stay focused and productive. These techniques involve breaking your work into smaller, manageable tasks and working on them for a set amount of time. This can help you stay motivated and make progress on your tasks.
✍️ Eliminate distractions: Distractions can quickly derail your productivity, especially at night. Try to eliminate or minimize distractions by turning off notifications on your phone, closing unnecessary tabs on your computer, and working in a quiet environment.
