Written by: Nnadozie Joseph

|Edit Article

Some students experience the overwhelming effect of sudden sleep while reading. Some find it very difficult to read for an extended period of time without losing focus and interest, while some will read very well but tend to forget all they have acquired within a short passage of time.

Are you a victim to any of the above mentioned problems?

If yes, the good news is that there are solutions to each and every problem mentioned. No matter how dull or inactive you think your brain is, the fact still remains that your brain is far more better and higher than any man made computer and could retain more information than any computer.

Knowing and applying the right tips while reading will help you to retain and recall the information you have acquired.
Your brain is like an athlete. And athlete exercise regularly to improve his skills and performance. Likewise your brain, the more you exercise it, the more you improve its ability and capacity. We have short term and long term memory.
Whenever information is acquired, it can either stay in the short term or long term memory. This information could easily be lost if no effort is applied to move it to the long term memory.

Listed below are various study habits
These are vital study secrets every student must know if successful acquisition of knowledge is to be accomplished, they are outlined below.

1. Develop a good study Habit.
For information to be retained as a part of long term memory, it must first be acquired. Most people have a poor reading habit. There is no short cut or magic involved when it comes to acquiring information except you develop a good reading habit.

Don’t let fear of reading for hours discourage you, remember, it is not a matter of how many hours you covered while reading but how often you read. Consistency is the key. Some people choose reading as a hobby. They were not born with it, rather they developed the habit over a period of time, and now instead of seeing it as burden, to them it is an enjoyable activity. Likewise you can develop such a habit for reading.

2. Choose the best time to read.
Everyone has a particular time frame they tend to read and understand information easily. Some people tend to understand and retain information easily if they study early in the morning between 1am – 3am or 4am – 6am, while others choose to study between 8pm – 10pm in the night.

You do have your own best time. Scheduled your reading time to match. Utilize any time frame that work best for you. But remember, you can also read at other times because the essence of reading is to acquire knowledge and retain information.

3. Make a Time Scheduled.
Every individual have to make their own time schedule. You can create a study schedule table and paste it where it is easily accessible, make sure that you stick to the scheduled time. The truth remains that you choose to study for only 2 hours each day.

1 hour for reading, 30 minutes for meditation and the remaining and the remaining 30 minutes for note making. You can buy an exercise book as your memory lane book. Whenever you study, write down the important points in your personal exercise book, this will save you time, stress and energy.

During examination period, instead of reading your textbook or school notebook over again, you can easily do revision with the exercise book where all the vital information is. With fewer points to review and retain, you can easily remember the information you have acquired in the examination hall.

4. Avoid Distraction.
Do not let any activity interfere with study time, and try as much as possible to study in a quiet environment with nothing to distract your attention like television, music, or any ongoing activity in the vicinity.

Do not study when you are tired, weak or when you just returned from school with the fan turned on, it can easily cause you to sleep off in the middle of your study. When you are tired, the best thing you need to do is to take a nap or siesta. When your body is better rested and your mind is sound, you will get the best out of your study.

5. Avoid the wrong type of food.
The problem of finding it difficult to concentrate while reading may be increased by eating the wrong type of food before reading. If you had just finished doing a hard work and you want to read, heavy meals like complex carbohydrates should be avoided because they slow down digestion rate.

The same advice goes to someone that is probably tired. The reason is that your brain requires a constant supply of energy to stay alert and focused when you are reading. If you eat a heavy meal, the attention given to your brain will be greatly reduced, more energy will be utilized to digest the food you ate and this will probably cause you to lose concentration or sleep off. Eat light, easy – to –digest meal when you are good to study except you are fully rested.

6. Eat Food that Improve your Memory.
There are natural food that can improve your brain power and help your memory to assimilate more information while studying. Foods like walnuts, cashew nuts, oily fishes like salmon and sardines, avocados, tomatoes, olive oil, coconut oil, asparagus, blueberries, eggs, broccoli, kale, spinach, almonds and pumpkin seeds.

7. Do not Hate any Course.
Granted, because of variation and individual differences, some courses may be very easy to understand while others may not. A student could easily develop hatred for a course if the course is difficult and if the course principles have no application in his activities.

At other times, the teaching method of the lecturer may even reduce or totally kill your interest for the course, but the truth is that you don’t have to develop hatred simply because you don’t like the lecturer or because the course is difficult.

Try all you can to develop an interest for the course. Remember, if truly you dislike the course in question, then try all you can to pass that course in examination so you can avoid a carryover and repeating the same course next year.
