7 Tips to improve your study!

  1. When you’re studying, it helps to keep in mind your reasons for doing all this hard work, like a course or career you’re working towards. It can help to have something in your study space to remind you of your goals. You could decorate your study space with inspirational quotes or photos of people you admire and family members you want to make proud of you.
  2. None of us are superhuman, so it’s important to realize that you can’t maintain an optimum level of concentration without giving yourself some time to rest and recover from the hard work you’ve put in, taking regular short breaks not only help improve your focus, they can boost your productivity too.
  3. You’ll study better if you take care of yourself. Make sure you eat well and get enough sleep and physical exercise. Don’t reward yourself with too many sugary or fatty snacks or push yourself to study late into the night. It’s also a good idea to make sure you drink lots of water when you’re studying.
  4. Most of us have a preferred way of learning. Get to know you’re learning style and study in the ways you learn best.
  • Auditory learners learn by listening. If you’re an auditory learner you could try reading your notes aloud and discussing them with other people. You might like to record key points and play them back.
  • Visual learners learn by seeing. If you’re a visual learner you could use colours in your notes and draw diagrams to help represent key points. You could try to remember some ideas as images.
  • Tactile/kinesthetic learners learn by doing. If you’re a tactile/kinesthetic learner you could use methods like role-playing or building models to revise key points.
  1. Your attitude has a big impact on the level of study that you get done and the effectiveness of your learning process. If you keep saying that you can’t do it and won’t commit to the idea of learning, attempting to study is only likely to become more difficult. Instead, focus your mind on positive outcomes and on how you can use your own individual strengths to achieve them. When you think positively, the reward centres in your brain show greater activity, thereby making you feel less anxious and more open to new ideas.
  2. Find a comfortable and quiet place to study with good lighting and little distractions (try avoiding your own bed; it is very tempting to just lie down and take a nap).
  3. Learn the general concepts first, don’t worry about learning the details until you have learned the main ideas.
