10 Helpful Study Tips Supported By Science!

the science of studying
Life can get hectic sometimes and the stuff we read doesn’t quite stick to our brains as much as we’d like. Here are some great tips with scientific explanations tips that will make all that precious information memorable when it’s time to ace that test.

Study Enviroment1) Change your environment.

Studies show that when you change the location you study at, your brain forces you to make new associations with the same information which helps it stick better and helps you remember.

Read out loud2) Read it out loud.

When you read text out load you are activating two different parts of your brain because you are seeing the information and also listening to yourself say it.

Get Fit3) Get fit.Reach shows that if you do aerobic exercise for about 30 minutes a day you can really improve how your brain processes information. A little run on the treadmill might make you a little smarter.

Listen to Music4) Listen to music.Sometimes when you are stressed out you can’t study. Music helps alleviate that stress so your brain can concentrate. Classical music has been shown to dramatically lower tension.

No Internet5) Try studying without the internet.The internet can be a endless loop of distraction. If you can just turn off your phone and internet during your study time you might be able to zero in on what you’re trying to learn on instead of watching cat videos.

Omega 36) Fish Oils and Nuts.

There are certain fatty acids called Omega-3 found in fish oils and nuts that help give your brain a helpful boost and sometimes can lower tension which will help you focus.

Write it out7) Write it out not type it out.

Some researchers have found that our brains tend to store information better when we write our notes out by hand rather than typing it.

Meditation8) Meditate on it.

When you’re planning on a big study binge it’s best if you take a few moments to clear your thoughts. By calming yourself you are increasing your attention span and it will make your study session more enjoyable.

aromatherapy9) Stop and smell the roses.

Aromatherapy can be beneficial before a big test. Breathing in some essential oils will relax you right before that big exam and will help you clear distractions and think straight.

The biggest tip is you’ve got to know what works for you. Maybe you need to study with a partner or eat some brain food. Just experiment on what feels right and what makes you feel comfortable and it will help all that information stick.
