Subjective Tips for Studying Better
Some subjective tips to study better will be given in this post. They serve as a backdrop to make your scheme of study even better, even if you already have another good study to study.
Sleep well to study better still
Yesterday I tried to write something that related some tips to improve the apprehension capacity during the study moments and ended up learning one more lesson, which was hard and cost me the trouble of not being able to do it that day. I did not get a good night’s sleep, so I could not concentrate on what I was trying to do. At that moment, all I needed was just to sleep. Today, since I’m rested, and I had a good night’s sleep, I can say that the first tip that follows is: get enough sleep!
Physical exercises and rest are very important
Health and fitness are of fundamental importance and directly influence the performance of our intellectual activities. So another tip is: practice regular physical activity. But we should not only practice physical exercises to take care of the body; good nutrition is also necessary because, in this way, we will have sufficient energy reserve to be used by the brain when in intense operation. During studies, the brain consumes a large amount of energy from our body. Even when we are at rest, it consumes about 20 or 25% of body energy!
So far we have seen only a few indirect tips, which relate not only to the process of study, but to health as a whole. Let’s look at other tips that are more closely related to study habits.
The best time to study better is your
It is important to find out your best time to study. I, for example, like the afternoon more, both to study and to write, because where I live is quite silent and, therefore, I do not encounter the characteristic diurnal difficulties, such as the noises and other activities that could “steal” the my attention. Generally from 15:00 I feel a good mood; the room temperature is usually good and the brightness of the day is also good. But it is important that each person find that schedule that fits harmoniously in their tasks, in which you do not feel any of the impediments already mentioned: sleep, noise, hunger, fatigue etc.
Once your schedule has been made, take your commitment to study seriously. Experts say that the ideal is to employ about 1 hour a day to study. However, if it is necessary to exceed this amount of time, they advise that a 10-minute break should be taken for each hour studied.
Do you see well?
Another very important thing I learned last week was about vision. Those who see well need not make any effort to read book texts! How long have I been suffering (deservedly!) Because I have not been looking for an ophthalmologist for many years! Then, when I realized that even when I was wearing glasses I could no longer read texts with font size 11, it forced me to go to the doctor. I changed my glasses and felt how good it is to see things that I had even forgotten that they existed! Then, write down this tip as “urgent”: visit your ophthalmologist at least once a year.
Posture is fundamental
Above all, posture is one of the most important points when it comes to studying. It is essential to keep the spine straight. Even if it is necessary to use some shim or the chair’s own back. The tendency of people is to think that by bending it we will be able to make the back rest. But in that way we will be forcing one part of the musculature over the other. It is preferable to lie down and stretch the body, contracting and relaxing the muscles (stretching), than to bend it. Keeping the spine always upright, over time it will be possible to spend growing periods sitting without pain or discomfort.
Anyway, stay on front with your books. Organize all the material you may need during your studies: a dictionary, scratch papers, pencil and eraser. In this way, attention will be diverted from focus whenever it is necessary to make a note or search for the meaning of a word.
Finally, plan which (or which) subject you will study. Lay out a small road map to be completed within 60 minutes. Draw a goal for each day and avoid letting it go.
By following these subjective tips to study better, you will be able to eliminate many of the external impediments that discourage most people when they decide to study. The act of learning is not unpleasant. Usually what makes the moment of study seem an unpleasant act are the extrinsic circumstances, not the act of studying itself.
