How To Improve Studying Skills
The main thing is your desire based on your motivation. Try to remember some phrases about education you ever heard: “Education is an essential part of our modern life!', “Everyone has to study hard to get a good job in future', “This man is poor and unhappy, because he has skipped lessons'… What do these statements mean for you? Probably, nothing. They are too general and far from reality.
- So the task number one for you is formulating your own motive force. When you clearly realize your aims, there will be no serious difficulties in improving your studying skills.
- Read the thoughts of clever people. Their examples can motivate you to improve your own studying skills. For instance, Aristotle said: “The educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead' and “The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet'.
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Going to the gym make you more vigorous and spirited, so you won`t get tired too quickly while studying. Eating food containing enough vitamins and minerals is also healthy for your brains.
- Make a schedule of your day. Remember that it would be better to make a shorter list of the tasks and do all of them, than to write a great amount of tasks beyond your strength and get the needle because you don`t have enough time.
How To Improve Learning Skills During The Direct Studying Processes
- Don`t be at pains to learn as much as possible. Instead of it try to understand the material.
- There are people with visual, auditory and kinesthetic types of memory. Define your type. In the case of kinesthetic memory type, it would be better for you to write the information you need to learn. Different bright pictures, schemes and diagrams will be useful for those people who prefer see everything. If your type of memory is auditory, it is strongly recommended to ask somebody to read the text for you (or you can read aloud by yourself).
- Don`t digress while studying. Turn off your mobile phone and shut off your TV. Ask the members of your family not to disturb you during the studying process.
- Relax at least once an hour. When you need to rest, make a short (5 – 10 minutes) time-break. You may drink a cup of coffee or do the exercises during this time (the last variant would be better). Your organism will thank you for such warming-up.
- Learn the material in order. If you don`t understand something, there is a high possibility that you have some gaps. Read the previous theme.
- Have to learn too much information? Don`t be afraid! Your fear shackles the strongest desires. Making a schedule will solve the problem.
