Studying Tips

‘Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.’~ Steve Jobs

Hi! Welcome back to my blog today I'm gonna be posting studying tips. Many people are going to be studying and getting ready for Pre's (Pre examinations) and Mocks over the next few weeks before their all important Junior Cert (15-16 year old)/ Leaving Cert(17-19 years old) so I decided why not post some studying tips for anyone who is having tests or exams.

Tip 1~ Do A brain Warm Up

Just like muscles your brain needs to warm up, doing a quick mental activity such as counting backwards from 10.

Tip 2~ Pay Attention In Class

This one is pretty self explanatory is you pay attention and look over your note when your supposed to that's half the work!

Tip 3~ Make A Study Timetable 

If you have a lot to study its a great idea to create a study timetable and stick to it! That way
you don't need to worry about forgetting topics or subjects and cramming information last minute.

Tip 4~ Make Study Cards Or Flashcards

Writing the main points and key words of a chapter on a sheet or on flash cards is a great way to re-jog your memory before an exam or test.
*Using different coloured pens helps distinguish different points.
*Highlighting also helps you to remember the points.
↬If you do small tests once you finish a chapter on a topic i.e.  A history test on The Reformation. Make the flashcards then and keep them in a small folder so when the end of year exams come about you don't need to worry about making loads of flashcards last minute.

Tip 5~ Read aloud

Studies show that if you read or recite facts aloud there is a higher chance that you are going to remember it.

Tip 6~ Take Breaks

Studies also show that taking a short break after 45-50 minutes is a good idea as your focus and concentration will become harder after this time, anything past 1 hour and 30 minutes simply does not get remembered.

Tip 7~ Go Outside

Studies show that going for a brief 20 minutes walk before a test can help boost your memory and brain power to help you do preform better. You should also go for a walk while on a study break.

Tip 8~ Eat, Drink Water and Sleep  

Its pretty obvious but still it is very important part of studying and increasing your memory. 
Sleep; For example if you stay up until two o clock in the morning studying the next day you will be exhausted and more than likely not be able to remember anything or focus on remembering anything else.
Drink Water; it is said that drinking water increases brain power.
Eat Omega 3 Fatty Acids; Oily Fish, Walnuts, Peanuts and Pumpkin seeds is shown to help memory functions and control learning throughout the day.

See ya! ~💖Tori xx
