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.
1) 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.
2) 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.
6) 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.
7) 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.
8) 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.
9) 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.
10) Know yourself.
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.
