1. THINKING / MEMORIES
You can only think focused on ONE thing at a time.
Focus on what you are going to learn - what the teacher is telling you or what you are reading without thinking about anything else.
We remember pictures easier and better than we remember words. Try to remember in pictures! Create images in your mind of what someone is telling you or of what you are reading.
The brain does not have the strength to be fully focused on anything for very long.
Set a timer of 25 minutes. Work focused until it rings. Immediately interrupt the call and take a five minute break. Continue working again for 25 minutes.
Structure up, schedule your studying.
3. SPREAD OUT
We remember better and longer if we spread the study over several days than studying everything in one day.
Instead of studying a lesson for 40 minutes in one day, it is better to divide the study into 10 minutes on four different days.
Study the same factual knowledge in several different places and in different ways.
