Tricks to study
Studying has its tricks. December arrives and as we well know it is a time full of exams and external responsibilities: family, travel, Christmas and New Year.
You already know that as a student residence in Barcelona we care about your study and your social life.
Between us: in this context we know that study moves to a second place in our lives. It’s a responsibility we want to get rid of instead of dealing with.
To do this, we have thought of tricks to study. The goal is to give it the right and necessary time to optimize your study and, at the same time, enjoy your social life. Come on… which is what you like most.
It’s clear you don’t want to spend too much time on it, but you’ll have to. Studying for a long time running is no longer usual. Instead, focus on studying by setting a time limit.
Control the times you dedicate to study and do not exceed 30 or 40 minutes. That said, during that time you have to do it 100×100. This way you’ll see that you’ll keep your mind focused and you’ll be able to assimilate the information much faster.
It’s better for you to study in small bursts of time than all at once. Needless to say, sleep is very important. That is to say, rest well.
It’s better do it in the morning, which is when you’re most active. Then, when you’re done, you’ll have all day for yourself.
Get a routine. This trick to study will be very useful so that you can adjust your schedule and activities outside of study.
Set a schedule to study. For example: between 10 am and 1 pm from Monday to Friday. Set up a calendar with the most complicated topics for the beginning of the week and leave the lightest for the end.
In this way, over time, you will face the end of the week with less pressure and more relaxed. Plus, you’ll feel better about yourself as you’ll see results and the progress you’re making in your study.
Don’t leave everything for tomorrow. Can you imagine getting to Friday with the hardest and most tedious topics to do? Do it on Monday and you’ll enjoy the weekend.
This trick to study will be easy for you. In TheLofttown, the student residence in Barcelona, you will find many spaces designed exclusively for study.
In these shared spaces, order, neatness and tranquillity prevail. These same features should be transferred to your room or personal place of study.
Believe us: order makes study easier. At a certain point having everything in place and structured will make you feel more comfortable and willing to grab your books.
Also, if you are able to, you can rotate and change your study places. Take advantage of open places.
Avoid distractions. We don’t know why we are speaking in the plural, as we are referring to the mobile phone.
Put it silent or face down. If you can, keep it away. Think that this distraction will consume your structured time and, in the long run, affect your weekly routine.
That WhatsApp message and the last post on Instagram can wait 30 minutes. Once you’re done studying, relax, go for a walk and have a drink and eat something.
Like at school: take a little 10-minute break and get back to the hassle.
It’s not much to ask: stay away from the technology and stimuli that may affect you for only half an hour.
Adjust study goals by month, weeks and days. This way you can measure your achievements and feel you’re moving forward. This trick to study is key. Especially for your self-esteem.
Try to set out complete study units according to your needs. You’ll see how good a feeling it is to finish what you’ve set out to do.
You can also create a mind map of the topics and this will help you better remember the topics you are studying.
You now know the tricks we recommend to study. If you carry them out you will see the results and, most importantly, you can enjoy your free time without guilt!
