Give your next study sesh a boost with these four unconventional tips
Let's face it: In many parts of the country, there’s nothing all that conventional about school right now. Still, you have to get your work done, so now is a great time to think outside the box about the way you study. It’s always good to introduce new study skills that might help freshen up your routines, so read on for four little-known strategies that *really* work.
Rewrite your notes on big whiteboards
Nothing screams inspiration like a big glossy whiteboard waiting to be doodled on...or studied on? Vamp up your study session by creating large visual aids. It'll force you to focus on the most important info, and you can hang the boards in your room so that you literally can't help but look at them.
Film yourself teaching it to someone else
Pretending that you're the teacher will boost your confidence...even if the person that you're teaching is actually imaginary! Plus, if you film or record yourself, you can play it back multiple times so that the info really sinks in.
Incorporate your study materials into dinner conversation
Talk to your family and friends about what you're learning—you can even ask them to ask you questions about the content. You may even jumpstart a good convo where your mom, dad or older sib offers extra info about the topic you're studying.
Work out while you study
Whether you bring your notes on the treadmill or listen to a YouTube vid you watched in history class while you practice yoga, blending studying with fitness can help you focus. While your body's moving, your brain will be, too!
