Each one links through to posts in the site going into more detail about how I use these tools. You can also check out some of my favorite college study supplies.
Productivity & Time Management
- Easily color code individual calendars.
- Customize your view beyond daily/weekly/monthly. I like to look at 2 weeks at a time.

- Meal planning and organizing recipes.
One of the ways I have created some time in my week is by automating some of my shopping through Amazon Prime. I quickly can order items and receive them in two days. Students can use their .edu email address to get a Prime account for half price (affiliate link)!

This free tool makes it so quick and easy to work on memorization. I love this site because it is very easy to get started and create a set of terms and definitions. BONUS: Create your notes in question/answer format and you can turn those into a Quizlet. Once you’re set up there are a ton of ways you can work on the set including games you can play, traditional flash cards, and a customizable test mode (my fav).
Use the Pomodoro technique to help optimize your focus and make study sessions less painless. Study in smaller sessions and give yourself breaks/rewards to keep your motivation going.

If you want to change your life, you have to change your thoughts. This is my favorite free podcast. Each week Brooke shares ways to manage your minds to create a life you are passionate about. I listen every week and do the work on my own thoughts.
