Studying tips

Sunday, July 5, 2015

Hey Readers!

Below the cut are some tips from yours truly on how to stay focused while studying. Make sure to leave some feedback and share this post with your friends!

  • Write everything down!
And I mean write it! It's easy to get lost in your own thoughts when your eyes are glued to a computer screen. Instead of relying on notes that are typed up on your laptop, try writing them out in a notebook when you're studying. Chances are that rewriting things will help you really learn what you're focused on, and it gives you the opportunity to add any information to your notes if needed.
  • Take breaks!
Take it easy! I, myself, am guilty of waiting for the last minute to study for major tests, but spending hours reading the same things over and over isn't going to help. According to an article in, small diversions can help dramatically improve an individuals ability to focus on tasks. My suggestion is to take at least fifteen minutes every hour to clear your head and take a breath.
  • Watch funny videos on YouTube!
In my experience, this is the best advice ever. If you have nothing else to do on one of your study breaks, then give this tip a go. It's a good distraction for when you feel like you're about to pull your hair out, and the videos aren't long enough for you to lose track of time. My personal favorite kind of videos to watch? Why, the ones with babies in them of course!

  • Stay hydrated!
And fed, for that matter. No one can really focus when they have food on the mind. Make sure you've got a bottle of water and some small snacks nearby to satisfy any kind of food craving while you're trying to get work done. 
  • Find your perfect spot!
Some people need to study in dead silence, some people need music in the background, some people need a certain kind of lighting and some need a buddy around them. Take a few minutes to plan out where you're going to go before diving into a huge study session. The more comfortable you are, the easier it'll be to concentrate on the material in front of you.
