MOMS IN SCHOOL: How Moms Can Find Time to Study

Do you find it difficult to set aside time to study or are you worried about starting a new course and finding out that you won’t have the necessary time required to study? These are concerns many moms have and you need to ensure that you can dedicate enough time to your studies, without having to neglect other areas of your life. Below are some of the ways moms can find time to study, even if they already have a busy schedule.

Sit Down and Identify Times When You Are Free to Study
With all of the hustle and bustle of modern family life, it can be difficult to see the wood for the trees. The first thing you need to do is to sit down and list all of the activities you need to complete each week. Once you have this information placed in front of you, it’s much easier to identify the times when you are doing nothing and could put this time to better use.

For instance, there may be a number of times during the week where you spend your spare time watching TV or surfing the net. These are times you could eventually set aside for study once you have enrolled in the course you want to take.

Enroll in an Online Course
Starting a course in a local college or university is not an option for many moms because it takes up too much time. You have to travel to and from lectures, and attend lectures, and you will probably waste precious time in other ways.

However, when you enroll in an online course, this is not the case. For example, if you decide to obtain a health care qualification you have a wide range of online MHA degree courses to choose from, provided by universities like Ohio University. You can complete this type of MHA degree program without ever having to leave your home, which save you hundreds of hours over the lifetime of a course like this.

Study While You Travel
Thanks to the latest online courses and audio courses, you no longer have to stay at home or go to a college or university to study. The latest course formats make it much easier to study when you’re travelling. For example, you can listen to audio files while you drive or view your course on your smartphone if you regularly use public transport or have some idle time to kill while you’re on the move.

Get Help
Before you begin a new course, talk to others who will be affected by this change to your lifestyle and ask them for support. Your partner, family members and friends may be able to help you at certain times when you need to study. Knowing that you have this help available will free up more of your time to study and reduce much of the stress that occurs when you try to combine family life with study.


Studying takes up a lot of time and effort. This is why you should consider each of the points above and find time to study.'
