Study for 30 minutes at a time:
If you have problem in concentrating for a longer period, try to study for at least 30 minutes in one go. Setting small goals and then achieving them, this process helps in boosting the confidence. It makes you realize that yes; you can set a target and then achieve it. In this way, you will be able to see the result of your hard work and eventually, you will be able to concentrate for a longer period and find motivation to study.
Break in up:
Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day. So, if you are planning to cover a huge chunk of your syllabus at one go, then forget about it. Chances are, you will end up with anxiety because, let’s be real, you can’t read and memorize everything in a day. So, for effective learning, break your syllabus into smaller chunks. Cover it piece by piece and make notes. In this way, you will be able to retain what you have learned.
Set a timer:
Set a timer according to your reading capacity and just do it. Do not pause your timer and get into another work, until and unless it’s too compulsory. This will help you in keeping track of your study habits and you can become a better planner. When you will see yourself completing your timers and finishing targets, you will definitely find motivation to study.
Take a break:
Ok, let’s be real. You are a human being and not a machine. Even if you are not tired, your brain is. You need to give your brain a break in order to work it effectively. If you will force too much upon your brain, it will stop absorbing information. And when this happens, even if you keep staring at your book for hours, nothing will retain in your brain. So, take a break. Get some fresh air and listen to your music. Let the brain recharge and then get back to your books and study.
Sit at a desk:
You should develop a habit of sitting at a desk and reading/studying. This has many advantages. Number one is that you cannot lay down on it and sleep. It will prevent you from sleeping. Studying in bed makes you lazy and you eventually end up sleeping like a baby. Also, sitting and reading keeps your mind alert and helps you in effective learning.
To do list:
The pleasure of ticking off an item from your to do list is unbeatable. When you make to do lists, there are very less chances of missing something. And even if you miss some targets, they will be in front of you, staring at you and asking why you haven’t finished them. In this way, you will be able to check where you missed and improvise your study strategy.
So, these were some basic study tips and study hacks for effective learning which can be very helpful for beginners. These study tips are helpful in preparing for any major exam, be it school, college or competitive exams.
