What Is Your Best Study Time?
Every person has own time when studying feels like doing something very easy. It is called best study time. Don’t be surprised if you find that your best time to study is at night or just before the morning, you are not alone. There are tens of thousands of people learning just like you. It is completely normal to study during your best time even if it is commonly avoided.
On the other hand, sometimes it can pose problems on you, your parents and professors.
For some people getting up early in the morning is the most productive time. Others say that they often stay late to study because they can get the most out of the materials. The majority of students claim that the night is the most productive time. As surprisingly as it may sound, a survey by American Thoracic Society supported this fact by examining the grades of 280 students. The participants demonstrated better results during the tests that were taken between 11 and 1 pm. This way they could study most of the night and sleep longer in the morning.
Early Morning Headache
No matter how good the grades you are having during the tests after 11 pm, this can be a big problem. Most schools and colleges start their lessons early in the morning and you have to get up even if you studied just a couple of hours earlier. The benefits of studying during the night can be easily ruined by lack of morning sleep because of the school schedule. This, in turn, might undermine your chances for good grades and affect your overall performance.
Let’s review several tips on how to maximize your time to study:
- Some people in their 20 and 30s still don’t know whether they are morning or night persons. The results might surprise even you. Just get up early in the morning and try to study. If you have done better than you usually have, you might as well be a morning person. And you can stay late at night and study. The best result confirms the best time to study for yourself.
- If you have confirmed that you are a night person, some people like your parents might have something against it because they might appreciate the traditional way of studying. Just have a talk with your parents and explain them about the situation. Have the science data help you during your negotiation.
- If the best time for studying is known and confirmed, make sure you are getting most out of it. This means that there should be no distractions during this time, such as TV, cell phone and computer.
- The time to go to sleep should be clearly established and followed by.
- You should not waste your time on Facebook, texting with friends and playing video games. Figure out a time to do it when you are not occupied with important studying subjects. For example, you can do it in early evening just before getting to books.
