HOW TO REMEMBER MORE OF WHAT YOU STUDY
The human brain is an incredibly powerful biological machine.
It starts working from the moment you are born and only stops working just before you sit an exam.
Heard this one before?
This is one of the greatest fears that students have when it comes to learning.
They revise for several hours everyday for months on end. Then as soon as they enter the exam room, their mind goes blank.
Why does this happen?
Exam stress is a major factor, but also bad study habits play a role.
Just because you’re reading for hours, don’t expect your mind to remember everything.
There are many important factors that you need to consider before you start revising.
Here are a few of the best ones to help you remember more of what you study.
Your Mood Matters.
Before you begin your learning or revising session, make sure your in a positive mood.
A negative or bad mood will not allow you to study effectively because you will most likely be focused on your negative mood rather than your studying.
Your brain cannot focus on two things at once.
So if you’re in a bad or negative mood, try changing your state of mind by thinking about something pleasant for a few minutes or listening to your favourite music or song.
Anything that will help you reframe your thinking from negative to positive.
When are you most Alert?
Discover the best time of the day that you feel most alert and schedule your study for that time frame.
It could be just after school, first thing in the morning, or maybe you prefer studying in the evening.
Select a time in the day you feel most alert.
There is really no point in forcing yourself to study if you’re feeling tired or fatigued.
Many people say studying first thing in the morning is ideal because there are very few distractions.
Even though that is true, if you’re waking up early in the morning feeling very tired, you’re not likely to maintain your focus on your studying or revision.
However, if you are a morning person, then by all means go for it.
When you are studying or revising, make sure you schedule blocks of time to study and to take a break.
This usually depends on how long you can maintain focus on a particular topic.
Around 30 to 45 minutes is ideal followed by a 10 minute break.
This is just a guide. You should choose a study time block that is manageable by you.
When you do take a break, go outside if possible for a short walk and get some fresh air.
It will help oxygenate you brain and help release tiredness and fatigue.
Get enough Sleep.
This isn’t necessarily about how many hours of sleep you get, but more importantly, how deep a sleep you get.
Sleep is not just something you do to help overcome tiredness, because during sleep, your brain uses that time, amongst other things, to covert facts from your short-term memory to long-term memory.
Useful for revision, don’t you think?
The optimal level for children is around 9 hours each night, and between 7 and 9 hours for adults.
Although, if you so wish, you could take a 10 minute power nap after each study session.
No more than that please.
Then wake up, take a five minutes stroll, drink some water, and begin you next study session.
