Q: How can I study to my full potential?
Identify what time of the day you feel more focussed, less distracted and you can concentrate, such as in the:
3. Early afternoon
4. Late afternoon
5. Early evening
6. Late evening
(Choose from 1-6 your preference of studying during the day).
Keep a diary and record days/times you want to study. Manage your time by limiting how many minutes/hours, such as 10-20mins, 30-45mins or 1 or 2 hours you want to dedicate to study each day or every other day. The minutes/hours depend on your concentration level.
Eat a healthy breakfast full of fibre, drink no caffeine and eat fruits with plenty water throughout the day. Lunch & dinner should include dark green leafy vegetables and other vegetables that you like, but more dark green. Also, try to eat before 6pm-7pm.
Try not to study too late in the night because resting your mind and mental well-being is very important.
You can use skimming and scanning to read books fast.
Identify the topics in the book you want to focus on.
Have a notebook, pencil or high-lighter to hand.
Notebook: to note down things that you understand, highlight key things you do not understand and research these things to obtain a clearer understanding.
The use of note taking skills is useful, instead of using words throughout your notes, you can use symbols and numbers associated to words as well as abbreviations.
If one chapter is too large, read 1 or 2 paragraphs at a time during the time of day that you prefer to study.
Always identify key topics in each chapter in the book that you want to focus on.
If you are tired, DO NOT STUDY. Rest and do something else or nothing at all.
