Hello friends! I’m Sandy here to share my best study tips with you all as part of Back to School week. I came up with 10 tips that always help me study more effectively. I’m a no-nonsense bear, so let’s get right into it!
Take cute notes
I know for some people this can be overkill, but, for me it really helps. So when you’re in class, you write down notes quickly. Then after class, you copy the notes down in your notebook in your best handwriting. Writing down your notes twice can help engrain them into your brain.
When there’s something you need to remember, try to arrange the thing in a memorable way. As you can see here, in order to remember the planetary order you can make an acronym. Here’s one I learned: My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas. It helps me remember that the order is Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto.
Develop healthy habits
It can be tempting to stay up all night studying before a test. But I think that getting a good night’s rest is even better. It’s also important to eat somewhat healthy and not skip any meals.
Do the hard work first
Get the hard stuff out of the way first. I do my math problems before English, to kind of save English as a reward. Also, you’re fresher when you start studying versus when you’ve been working for a couple hours.
Get fun school supplies
It always motivates me to get new school supplies. It’s like a magic studying hack!
Snack while you study
Sometimes…having something to much on can help you focus. Or at the very least it makes studying more bearable.
Scratchy clothes definitely won’t help you to focus. You need to dress comfortably, but also cute! Whatever your style is. I love cardigans personally.
Get a study buddy
Another person can definitely help keep you accountable. It’s especially awesome if you can get someone who is in the same class as you so that you can help each other better. But any study buddy will do!
Make a schedule
It doesn’t have to be the same every day, but make a list of what work you need to get done and try to follow it.
Change your enviroment
If all else fails, change your enviroment. Sometimes we get bored in our workspaces and could just use a break. Change your scenery! Study in another room, or even outside. I definitely think this could help.
I hope you enjoyed! I also hope that these help you guys.
