Why You’re Not Enjoying Learning

A good start would be to identify why you aren’t enjoying learning. This is important because it could only help you at the end. Here are some of the reasons why you might not enjoy learning:

  • Your Course is Not a Fit – Maybe it is time to face reality and stop fooling yourself. You might not enjoy studying because your course is not a good fit for you. It could be because you are forced to do subjects that you aren’t interested in. 

  • Wrong Learning Method – Many people do well in crowded or noisy classrooms. Others work better on their own, or they get easily distracted in class. It is all about finding the learning method that suits you. It could be classroom, online or distance learning
  • You Don’t Feel Challenged – Maybe your course is too easy. It could be that you’re feeling as if you’re not learning anything new. This could make you feel like you’re wasting your time and money. 
  • Hard to Focus – Chances are you have a lot on your mind. It could be that you worry a lot about your job, your family and financial responsibilities. This could make it hard for you to focus and fully enjoy your course.

Join a Community 

If you’re having a hard time getting the swing of things, it might bring you comfort knowing there are others out there like you. You can find and connect with them online. A good place to start is with forums, online study groups and Facebook

Create Real Life Scenarios

Maybe you aren’t enjoying the course or learning, because you feel disconnected from it. So why not work on making it more relatable. You can do this by creating real life scenarios. This way you could understand your coursework better. 

Watch Youtube Videos

If you love to binge watch tutorials on YouTube, why not make it part of your learning experience. The tips you will learn online will be useful and you will absorb information doing something you love. It’s a win!

Gamify Your Learning

Take things back to the days where you were young and loved learning as a child. Find a way to gamify your studies to make things more fun. You can do this by creating quizzes and board games. 

Use Online Resources

Technology and online resources are there for a reason. Don’t listen to people who say ‘this generation has it too easy’. Learning should be accessible and you don’t have to visit the library or go through other obstacles to access information online. 

Get Productive With Apps

If you are constantly on your phone, why not use it to be productive instead? There are many apps you can use to help make learning fun and easier. Whether you are struggling with productivity, organising or keeping track of your studies – there is something for everyone.
