You don’t want to fall behind. But how do you keep up on those days when you’re out of your typical routine?
Whether you’re traveling or on vacation your daf learning can take a hit, then when we’re back and a few days behind, we find ourselves highly unmotivated to catch up. We’ve all been there (if you haven’t, then please tell us your secret!), so this is our top 3 tips to make sure you don’t miss.
- The daf comes first. The most important thing is to learn the daf first thing in the morning. If you leave it for later, you’ll only remember late at night when you are exhausted after a full day.
- Listen to a shiur. Learning the daf yourself can be hard, but it’s much more difficult when away without the proper structure or chavrusa. There are incredible online sources for the daf that you can see here.
- Have your own gemara. Make sure to travel with your usual gemara, a PDF of the daf on your phone won’t cut it. Even if you are near a shul that has a gemara, bring your own. Theirs may be an old print, or simply not what you’re used to.
