What are study habits?
Study habits that will make you a better
Would you like to know what study habits will make you a better student? Perfect! Here are 10 study habits that will help you learn smarter and more effectively.
1. Set a goal
Before starting to study daily you must be clear about what you want to achieve with all this. Being clear about your objectives and your motivations to undertake this path will be the key that will lead you to achieve your goals, that will keep you motivated and that will make you avoid procrastination.
2. Good planning is essential
Having a correct planning is essential if you intend to achieve a goal. It is your road map, the base that will make you follow a certain path and that you do not stray from the course if adversity arrives.
3. Study every day at the same time
To get a good study habit it is recommended that the study is always done in the same periods of time. This will make your brain end up assimilating those moments as study time and be more predisposed to understand the information in this time interval.
4. Avoid study binges
Studying for long periods of time without a break is counterproductive to your memorization. The best way to study is little by little, with small sessions of time well spent. In short periods the brain assimilates much better the information to which you expose it. It is proven that it is better to study ten sessions of one hour than one session of ten hours.
5. Rest is a priority
Many times, either because we have little time to study or because we have started studying too late for an exam, we substitute hours of sleep for hours of study. But you have to keep in mind that no matter what happens, you should sleep between 7 and 8 hours.
6. Always study in the same place
It doesn't matter if you do it in the library, in your room or at your aunt's house, the one in town. The important thing is that you always study in the same place, as it will help you avoid unnecessary distractions. When you are used to a place, the stimuli of the place are part of the routine, so you do not hear noises, nor are you distracted by the environment. Having a suitable place to study every day will improve your concentration and, therefore, your performance.
7. Set small goals every day
Setting yourself a small goal every day will help you concentrate and be more predisposed to study. If you know that today you have the goal of learning the periodic table, you should not get up until you have achieved it. Setting small goals will help you stay motivated, increase your concentration and prevent you from getting distracted.
8. Learn to teach.
One of the best habits you can acquire to improve as a student is learning to teach. This means that you must introduce an oral presentation of what you are studying into your routine. You should approach it as if you were explaining it to someone else to make it more effective. It does not matter how much information you have studied today. If you do it every day and incorporate it into your routine, it will give you a clear vision of the knowledge you have on the subject, it will help you mentally structure, assimilate and internalize the information you have studied.
9. Forget mobile devices.
No smartphones during the study. Yes, what you hear. Nothing. Even if you don't want to admit it, mobile devices are a constant source of distractions. If you are one of those who cannot live without your smartphone nearby, you should put it in airplane mode during the time you spend studying. In addition, you can also take advantage of your mobile to use some apps created especially to help you with your routines, such as Forest App.
10. Reward your effort daily.
Just as you have set small daily goals that you must meet, you need to reward yourself with something after achieving your daily goal. A big prize is not necessary: a coffee, a couple of pages of that book or a walk with your dog can be the prize. Doing something you like every day after achieving your goal will help you stay motivated and create a good study habit.
