Do you need to maximize your study time? Do you need to apply strategies to learn better? Getting to more focus on the study is the key to being able to apply all those strategies that you surely know. Study techniques are nothing if the focus cannot be boosted.
Emphasizing the promotion of the focus of the study is important for those who make work and/or family compatible with the study or who study again after many years. It takes a lot of willpower and a lot of discipline.
But, also, it is necessary to learn to isolate everything that has nothing to do with the study to focus on it. The techniques of more-focused discussed below will help you increase your motivation for studying.
Filter the information you receive:
We live in a world saturated with information, from political, economic and events news to cultural news, film premieres, and gossip through the news in our immediate surroundings. And, of course, social networks and other mass media.
All the information that surrounds us bombards us and causes us to dissipate our focus. So it is essential to filter all these information you receive to be more focused.
If you want to be more focused on the study you have to take steps to filter the information you receive and clear your mind. You should isolate yourself from receiving external information to the same extent that you need to focus.
That will mean not attending social networks, watching television or listening to the radio, reading magazines and newspapers and all those distractions that help you procrastinate.
Focus on your goals:
Remember every morning that they have great reasons to study: your goals. You study for something and something. And you will only get it if you study.
Every time you study, you are taking a step towards your goals. Think every morning: how am I going to move towards my goals today? Forget what you feel like doing at that time, and think about what you can enjoy when you achieve your goals.
Study before bed:
Some research assures that sleeping after studying can improve the memory of what has been previously studied and consolidate learning. This has a lot to do with what we explained in the previous point. Reading before bedtime can also work wonders in strengthening long-term memory.
But this does not mean you have to steal hours from sleep. It has been shown that depriving yourself of sleep to learn significantly decreases the learning obtained up to three days later.
Eat well and exercise:
To be more-focused it is essential to eat well and exercise. Studying does not mean that you have to forget about the health of your body. Eating well, avoiding excess caffeine and, of course, alcohol is essential to perform in the study. Foods rich in essential fatty acids are good brain foods, and they seem to help stimulate memory and memory.
Exercise is also good for the brain since an extra supply of blood and oxygen to the brain is achieved, which can improve brain function.
