|How To Study Effectively
Study is invariably one of the things that a lot of us will have to do at some point in our lives. The key way to begin studying effectively however, lies in following simple and concrete foundations to get the momentum going.

3. Organize Your Study
Make sure you know what you are studying, and exactly why you are studying it. You need to have a clear objective in your mind to get the most from it. Know the consequences which will happen if you don't study, and also know the rewards if you do study. The rewards from study are higher grades, and a better future.

If there is a difficult task to do, don't just jump into it straight away. The reason why it is difficult in the first place, is because you weren't familiar enough with the basics. So learn the basics fully first, before attempting difficult tasks.
6. Take Breaks
There are certain do's and do not's when it comes to break taking. The reason you take a break is to allow your brain to take up the information its just taken on, so that you can move onto the next task. You do this by stopping your work, and relaxing your mental activities for 10-15 minutes.
7. Do Not Memorise What You Need To Learn.
You should instead be learning and understanding the concepts at hand. You only thing you need to learn are formulas and functions (for mathematics and related topics). Everything else should be learned and understood. If you are forced to memorise, you are not actually understanding the information.
8. Clearly Understand The Link Between One Topic And The Next.
In a subject you are studying, there will be lots of different topics. When you understand the links between topics, you begin to understand how things are put together for everything in the first place. You can therefore understand topics better that way and study more effectively as a result.
9. Use Brain Boosting Supplements
Brain boosting supplements are an effective way to increase your rate of learning very quickly. If your objective is to cram before an exam, take supplements which will increase your short term memory. Also make sure that you take a multivitamin to ensure that your brain has enough nutrients to recover from each study session effectively. To know more about all the different supplements you can take to boost your brain, go to our Nutrition Modifications page.
10. Use Any Genius Intelligence Brain Harmonics Audio Whilst Studying.
Use it at the very start of your study session, and for a maximum of 1 hour per day. It will put your mind into a specialised and sharp state of mind which will help you study effectively for the whole study session.
11. Make Sure You Get Good Sleep Every Night
Get a good level of sleep every single night, and establish a routine of sleeping at the same time every night. This is because during study times, the brain needs time to re-arrange itself and the information presented to it correctly.
12. During Study Times, Make Study Your Only Focus.
In other words, you will need to sacrifice your other commitments such as sports, social clubs, TV, newspapers etc. Basically, everything should be sacrificed simply for the sake of study. When you only have one focus for your mind, your mind will specialise to help you study effectively. It might be difficult to let go of certain things due to them being habits, but you must realise that if you are sitting school or college exams, studying effectively is critical to your long term success.
What To Expect
Study sessions can sometimes be tiring and stressful, especially if we have not done all the work we were supposed to. We should therefore focus solely on our studies when it comes to exam time. Lives can be made or broken from the results we receive in exams, so it is of utmost importance than we learn to follow the steps above and succeed in our studies.
