A dark-skinned man wearing a black shirt is in front of a white background. Text insert appears: “What were some of the top tips from both of the student panels?” He signs.
Want some “top tips” for success? Here’s some advice from other students!
Join online deaf support groups. You can find a few on Facebook.
Reach out to your friends and classmates to form a group page where you can gather to share, give support, and stay motivated and accountable to each other in order to get through the semester.
Manage your time well to get through your tasks. Schedule your time in a way that works for YOU. You could meditate, practice mindfulness, read a book, exercise, or whatever else fits your needs!
Fitbit, Apple Watch, or other smart watches will automatically notify you, reminding you to stand up and move around. Go ahead – stand, stretch, and then get back to it.
You are in front screens every day! The light from computer monitors, tablets and phone screens can cause eye strain, headaches, and discomfort. You can use special glasses that filter out and reduce blue light so you can stay productive.
Also, make sure you have time to disconnect from all your technology to take a breather and move around until it’s time to get back to work.
Set some goals for yourself. Maybe you have a project to finish, homework to do, or some other task; could be a small thing. The point is – set a goal, work hard to complete it, and then when you’re done, celebrate by enjoying yourself.
And make sure you incorporate good sleep and good food, then take one step at a time.
