Study Tips Pt.1


We all sat in class with eagerness and anxiousness building up inside of us. We were waiting for the teacher to walk in with the results from the previous test. When she walked in, the loud noise turned to whispers.

I felt pretty good as I did well on my test. As the teacher gave out our answer papers there were smiles that came on people’s faces and some heads went down. I was part of those whose head went down. After a few such happenings I started to wonder what went wrong and why it kept going wrong.  

A few things that we should take care of while studying is our environmentnote taking and study method.

In this post I’m going to talk about our studying environment.

1) Adjust the Lighting and Ventilation

These two factors give a sense of refreshment to our brain and helps us to think effectively.

2) Cool the Colours

Colours play a very big role in the active functioning of our brain. Studies show that colours like green or blue will keep you inspired and focused. Bright colours like yellow orange, etc can easily irritate you.

3) Organize the Room

This actually saves you a lot of time because you wouldn’t have to spend time finding the books you need for studying. Keeping your room organized will help to keep your mind alert.

 4) Cut the Disturbance

It’s good if you can study in an environment where there is not much disturbance (by disturbance I mean music, texting, etc.) because no matter how much you try, at some point our attention will switch to what is happening in your surroundings. And if the things around you is much more pleasing than the book in front of you, then you will have a hard time bringing your attention back.
