Comfortable study time and space
The fast or slow memorization of the lesson depends a lot on the space and time of learning:
Space: It is best to choose a large, airy, quiet place, but do not be too quiet because it can create tension and easily cause drowsiness. It can be a garden, a private room, etc. You can memorize the lesson in a position: Standing, sitting, lying, walking back and forth…, as long as it makes you feel comfortable, but avoid constantly changing positions, This causes a feeling of distraction and fatigue, easy to lose interest in studying and interrupted thinking.
Time: Right early in the morning, the mind will be very clear, memorizing the lesson is easy but forgetting is also very fast. You may know it right away, but by noon or afternoon it will be difficult to recall. The evening takes a little longer, but in the morning you will remember very well and the memory lasts longer. The most suitable time to study is in the evening from 20 pm to 24 pm. It should be noted that just focus on studying from 45 minutes to 50 minutes, then take a break from 10 minutes to 15 minutes, so it is easier to focus on studying.
Record the main content over and over again
Perhaps many of you feel very depressed as to why I keep studying but I don’t memorize it or I study it the day before but forget it the next day. If so, try it by taking a paper and pen to record several times the main ideas of the lesson content.
Researchers at Princeton University and UCLA show that the method handwritten notes will help the brain enhance listening and the ability to identify more important concepts.
Because when having to absorb too much information, people often tend to distill and record the most important knowledge with short sentences or keywords. In particular, when you need to re-learn with these brief information, you will force the brain to recall and thereby deepen the knowledge.
Repeat many times
We often remember the names of our loved ones and never forget them. We can correctly name the things we use every day, precisely because these words are repeated over and over again. Why is it easier to learn a mother tongue than a foreign language? The main point is that we use our mother tongue every day and foreign languages are rarely used, so it is difficult to remember and does not form a natural reflex. Some people go abroad to live, always have to use foreign languages, so they quickly become fluent.
Memory is repeated many times called “muscular” memory. Regular mental training will help you have a good memory and form a natural response to the memorized problem. “Muscle” memory is the best secret to learning a foreign language.
Understand the problem you need to memorize
Surely there are still quite a few of you who are struggling to study but you do not really understand the problem you are studying. In other words, you are “rote learning”. You can memorize the content but you will also quickly forget it because you do not fully understand the core content of the problem. So if you want to deepen your knowledge, it’s very important that you do it Understand what you need to learn
You will remember things well that you understand clearly. If you read many times without understanding something, use “coercive” memorization, that is, just memorize the content and then slowly learn what you remember. You can ask friends, teachers to explain or you can search in other documents until you understand those knowledge. Do not rush to doubt this method, practice and feel the effect.
Why do you know how to ride a bicycle and never forget? It is cycling that must use muscles. Practice while studying to create a sense of excitement. Study chemistry, physics, do your own experiments.
Learn geography and biology Draw the chart yourself, draw the anatomy. Combined activities will improve memory efficiency. As long as you are positive and independent, you will find yourself remembering better than those around you.
Draw mind maps
Draw mind maps It is also an effective way to help you remember longer. You should present the lesson content in the form of diagrams with shapes and colors depending on your preferences and rich imagination. The types of mind maps you need to use in learning are: chapter mind maps, outline mind maps, paragraph mind maps.
Our brains encode visual memories many times better than written ones. Associating words with images makes it easier to remember. Especially, with social subjects such as literature, history, etc., reading and imagining images in the brain will quickly remember information.
Create a comfortable mind when studying
Have you ever studied in a feeling of fatigue, boredom, anger, or in a “jumping to the feet” style? This not only makes you learn the lesson long, but also can not remember it for a long time. The reason is due to the influence of psychology when studying. To fix this, please Make yourself the most comfortable when studying, don’t put pressure on yourself or study for the purpose of “dealing.
Don’t study when you feel tired, angry, distracted, or in a hurry. When your brain is relaxed, it will be like a sponge and naturally absorb information without effort. If you feel stressed, your brain will literally reject knowledge as well. You are only wasting your time if you force yourself to sit down and study while your mind is focused on other things.
Eat well and rest well
Your brain only works at its best when it’s given the nutrients it needs. That’s why you need a suitable diet to help you remember longer. The foods you need to provide your body with: fish, eggs, grains, green vegetables, foods rich in omega 3, …
In addition to diet, getting enough sleep is equally important. There are many friends who are close to the exam and often stay up very late to study. But staying up late like that makes your mind less clear, creating a feeling of fatigue. Therefore, the learning efficiency will not be high. In short, to be able to remember for a long time, you need to pay attention to your diet and get enough rest.
Underline important keywords
If your lesson is too long. If you think you can’t remember all of them, then Underline important keywords. From those keywords, you can develop ideas for the lesson. By underlining important keywords, you will learn the lesson quickly and help you remember it longer.
In the process of recording the knowledge you learn, you should filter the main ideas to underline so that when you open the book, you immediately remember what you have learned, this helps you learn the lesson very quickly and remember the lesson very quickly. long. Beneficial in getting to the core of the lesson.
Remember and summarize what you have learned
The principle of this secret is that when learning, ask you to go through the lesson a few times, and then close the episode, trying to remember what you just watched.
This method we can apply simply like this, for example: After opening a certain knowledge content you read about 2 times, the third time re-read the core and finally close and try Try to pull out what you just read in your head. Doesn’t mean you read the whole thing again, you remember the core issue.
