  • Hi everyone!

  • A lot of you guys know I took my Step 2 a few weeks ago and since taking my Step 2 I've

  • been doing my medicine sub-i.

  • So sub-i stands for sub internship and that means that as a fourth year medical student

  • you work under the intern or the first year residents and you really learn how to act

  • like an intern, and work like an intern so that you can be prepared when you start residency next year.

  • So I've been doing this at a hospital that's kinda far away.

  • Obviously traveling this far can be very tiring and even you're not traveling far if you have

  • a long day at work, or if you're studying at school, it's very tiring and when you come

  • home the natural tendency, I think is to kinda like just lie down on your couch and watch

  • TV and eat your delivered food or whatever.

  • But I know that it's very important to be productive even when you come home.

  • So I thought of a few ways that I can help all of us be a little more productive after

  • a long day at work or school.

  • So tip number 1 is having a routine or having an idea of exactly what you're gonna do when you get home.

  • So like I said before when you're home it can be really easy to lie down...personally

  • that's my tendency I can lie down and just go to sleep and never get back up.

  • So instead, what I like to do is I like to change into my workout clothes and head out

  • to the gym or go out for a run.

  • For today.

  • I'm going to go for a run and it's getting dark pretty soon so let's head out.

  • So tip number 2 is setting a goal outside of school.

  • Because a lot of us are students when we think of goals, we think in academics or in terms

  • of careers it doesn't necessarily have to be that way.

  • So for example, a lot of people wanna be fit and they wanna stay healthy and they wanna

  • be active but if that's all you're saying it's really hard to do something about it, especially

  • when you're home from school or work when you're tired and you don't wanna do anything.

  • So for me, I'm training to run a half marathon in December and setting that goal has made

  • it a lot easier for me to actually get out and run when I come home from the hospital

  • and I'm tired but that's a goal that I wanna achieve so I go out and do it.

  • It doesn't necessarily have to be fitness oriented it can be anything else.

  • So it can be music oriented, it can be knitting or art or any hobby that you wanna pursue

  • so setting a goal definitely makes it easier to actually get up and do something when you're tired after school.

  • Now that we're back home, tip number 3 is having a clean and organized work area.

  • Have you ever had those finals week where your room was spotless because every time

  • you sat down to study all you wanted to do was to clean your room because you didn't

  • wanna actually study.

  • That happens to me every time!

  • So what helps me stay focused is having an organized clean area where I can have my computer

  • up and my books out and I can just focus on studying and not be attempted to clean my whole house every time I come home.

  • Tip number 4 is have a big picture goal.

  • What I mean by that is you should have something in mind that you wanna accomplish in your

  • after school or after work hours.

  • Not something that you can do in one day but something that you can work on for a long period of time.

  • It can be something general getting a good grade in a class or it can be something like

  • working on an application or working on a big project.

  • So that might entail doing something like making a big to-do list.

  • Like I said, not something you're not gonna accomplish in one day but something that you

  • can work on a little bit everyday . So for example if your goal is to do well in class.

  • You might be making a flash card that you can do a little bit everyday or you might

  • be reading a chapter of a book that you're learning everyday or if you're working on

  • project you might be making a list of things that need to be done by working on one or two items every night.

  • For example if I were studying for an exam, I would do a little bit of flash cards everyday

  • so that I can remember the material better and I'm not cramming right before the exam.

  • My final tip for today is going to bed at a scheduled time!

  • I think something that happens to a lot of people is... night time feels like an infinite

  • amount of time so a lot of the times, people wanna push things back.

  • So instead of doing work right-away you say "I'm gonna watch this TV show and then get

  • to my homework" or "I'm gonna go out to eat or I'm gonna do this and this with my friends

  • and then get to my work" but what ends up happening is you end up sacrificing sleep

  • and you end up going to bed later and later every night.

  • You guys all know that sleep is very important and I really think that you should think of

  • sleep as part of your active learning process.

  • So what I like to do is I like to go to bed at a certain time.

  • It depends on the rotation what time I go to bed.

  • But I make sure that I get enough sleep.

  • Usually around anywhere from 7 to 8 hours a night.
