Top 10 Study tips

 

We’ve scoured our brains and the internet for the best study hacks to help your brain remember information quicker and easier and ultimately help you do better in your exams.

 

 

Study the past, if you would divine the future.

 

1. Walk Before An Exam

It’s been proven that exercise can boost your memory and brain power. Research conducted by Dr. Chuck Hillman of the University of Illinois provides evidence that about 20 minutes exercise before an exam can improve performance.

 

 

 

2. Speak Out Loud Instead of Simply Reading

 

Although this may make you look a little crazy, give it a go! You will be surprised how much more you can remember when you’ve said it out loud. Warning: Don’t try this in a crowded library!

 

 

3. Teach What You Have Learned

The best way to test if you really understand something is to try to teach it to someone else. If you can’t get anyone to listen to you explain the Pythagorean Theorem, why not teach a class of stuffed animals!

 

 

4. Reward Yourself With A Treat

There are many ways to integrate a reward system into your habits so you learn how to study for exams more efficiently. Here’s a simple way to motivate yourself to studywith Gummy Bears:

 

 

5. Draw Diagrams

Drawing diagrams will help you to visualise information which would be hard to describe. This creates a visual memory in your mind which can be recalled in an exam. You may even be asked to draw or label diagrams such as the human heart in your exam so get practicing!

 

 

 

 

6. Create Mental Associations

The ability to make connections is not only an easier way to remember information, but it’s the fuel of creativity and intelligence. Steve Jobs famously said “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something”.

 

Mind Maps are an easy way to connect ideas by creating a visual overview of different connections. Read more about the benefits of using Mind Maps to learn here.

9. Take Regular Study Breaks

When your brain is working, you need to take regular study breaks to help your brain absorb more information but also to keep you motivated and focused when you are working. Take a short break after 45-50 minutes study as your focus and concentration will become impaired after this period, anything new after 1 hour 30 minutes does not get assimilated.

 

 

 

10. Listen to the Correct Type of Music

Educated people have higher wages and lower unemployment rates, and better-educated countries grow faster and innovate more than other countries. But going to college is not enough. You also have to study the right subjects.

Success doesn’t come from Motivation, It comes from Inspiration. International Women’s Day 2018: “Pink Auto initiative ” shows way, makes travelling safer.

 

International Women’s Day 2018: Pink Auto initiative shows way, makes travelling safer... Inspiration is a chain of remarkable changes. One inspiration gives rise to another and the chain continues.

 

 

Pink auto, the first such initiative in the northeast, is the brainchild of social worker Kusumbar Choudhury, who is also the Bongaigaon city project manager of the National Urban Livelihood Mission (NULM). It was formally launched in January this year. Choudhury said that the project can be termed as a success. “Now, besides providing safety and security to the women passengers in the town, these women have also set an example of a dignified living,” he added. Choudhury came up with the concept after a woman passenger faced harassment while travelling alone in the town.

 

 

 

For most of these women, widowed or separated from their husbands, this is also a means to assert their financial independence. “It’s great to be doing this work. It has given us a better platform to earn a dignified life. Our earnings have increased. I’m happier to bear the expenses of my household and save something for my daughter,” Saraswati Sahoo, a widow and one of the women auto drivers, told TOI.

 

 

Sahoo lives with her daughter and her husband’s family in Bongaigaon town. She would earn very little and barely make ends meet. “Now, I earn around Rs 600 or more in a day,” she says.

 

 

 

 

 

Though these women have been doing their new job with pride, they have to overcome numerous challenges, including disparaging words from their male counterparts. However, they have not allowed that to get in the way. “Very often, our male counterparts would discourage us. But we have accepted the challenge. I tell them we are doing our work,” says Sahoo, laughing off the hostility she faces on a daily basis.

 

 

 

 

According to officials, the pink autos are fitted with GPS and electronic meter. They also have protective grille to ensure safety of commuters. The transport department has also inscribed women helpline number 1090 and police control room number 100 inside and outside the autos, which can be dialled in case of an emergency. The auto also bears the name, address and contact number of the driver.

 

 

 

 

Women can hire pink autos from Metro stations at Sector 15, 16, 18, Botanical Garden and at Wave City Centre. They will also be available at Sector 37, Sector 125 near Amity University, Sector 12-22 and at Sector 82.

In Greater Noida, commuters can find these autos at Knowledge Park, Jagat Farm and at Surajpur.

 

 

 

 

Rachna Yaduvanshi, ARTO (administration), Noida said that the transport department received applications from 52 drivers. “We moved these applications to the RTO Ghaziabad for final permit. Of the total applicants, 25 have been given permits. They will start plying on Noida roads from Monday,” she said.

 

 

Because you are women, people will force their thinking on you, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go. Don’t live in the shadows of people’s judgement. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom.

It’s that time of the year again! The exam time! The CBSE exams for class 10 and 12 will begin on March 9, 2017. The exam dates were delayed this year due to elections in five states, Goa, Punjab, Manipur, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. With less than a few days to go for the exams, the pressure on all the board aspirants is topping all records. We bring you 10 quick health tips to beat the stress and make the most of these last hours.

 

 

Exams & grades are temporary , but education is permanent .

 

1) Eat Right

This has to be the most important one. With the pressure mounting each day, as your exam day nears, the biggest blunder you might be committing is neglecting food. Regular intake of food is not only essential for healthy mind and body balance, but a good diet can also help you strengthen your concentration power. Avoid junk food, it tends to slow you down, apart from inducing several other health consequences. Eat plenty of green vegetables and dry fruits. Fish, sprouted grains, fresh fruits also help in releasing tension and focus better.

 

Dr. Ritika Samaddar, Dietics, Max Hospital asks the children to refrain from junk food, she also suggests giving heavier meals during the day and a light supper. ‘Eating a heavy dinner will be difficult on your child’s digestive system. You want to give your child enough fuel for the entire day, hence give energy dense food items in short intervals throughout the day,’ noted Dr. Samaddar.

 

The Doctor further suggested opting for carbs that are derived from fresh fruits andvegetables and cereals – these are helpful to the brain. Omega 3 fatty acids – found in most nuts and seeds like almonds – are also very good for the brain, and a handful of it should be consumed on a daily basis.

 

2) Meditate

 

Meditation not only increases your concentration, but also combats the pre-exam jitters which often undo all your hard work and preparation. Keep your face upward, your palms open, kept on the lap facing upwards. Breathe gently. Do this for 10 to 15 minutes a day, ideally early morning. If done daily, you would also witness a considerable hike in your memory retention

 

 

3) De-clutter and Arrange Your Study

 

A cluttered study space, can never result in a clear inflow of thought. We understand, how at this point you are going through every book and cluster of notes for the best possible preparation, but sparing 10 minutes to clear and organise your table would only help in better information retention. Also check all your notes are in order, and that you have all the handouts in place before you start off with your preparations.

 

 

4) Take Breaks

 

This might sound blasphemous at this crucial juncture, when you are possibly cramming answers even in your sleep. But this is crucial. Your brain anyway is going to reach a saturation point in about two to three hours of constant study. To ensure your brain is able to absorb and process new information, you need to give yourself breaks regularly.

 

 

5) Get Adequate Sleep

Your brain is not a machine. Period. For that matter, even machines need some time to unwind and refuel themselves for better functioning. Sleep deprivation can bring in several health repercussions, especially when coupled with stress. Your brain needs time to assimilate the information you have gathered during the day and a good slumber of 8 hours ensures that it happens smoothly.

6 )  Drink plenty of water and fluids 

 

Keeping yourself hydrated is most essential in these times of stress to ensure your energy rates from dipping. Keep drinking water throughout your revision.

While Coffee might seem to be a tempting way to keep your brain alert, it also comes with a host of dehydrating properties. You can opt for tea or green tea and energy drinks for better alternative. Fluids aid mental alertness, concentration and preventing headaches, so make sure your diet is full of food that is high on water content .Coconut water,

lassi, buttermilk, chaas, juices and soups are other fluids you can incorporate in your diet.

 

 

 

7) Practice Yoga or Some Other Form of Exercise

20 minutes of Yoga can prove to be a great stress buster. Dr. Rupali Datta, Chief Clinical Nutritionist at Fortis-Escorts Hospital shares, ‘Catch up on 40 winks regularly. Another way to rest your brain is to exercise. Take short 20 minute breaks during the day and do some light exercise, my favorite was putting on music and dancing my heart out. It refreshes you and puts you in an upbeat mood.’

 

A short walk in the evenings is another way to break between study sessions. Your brain gets a break, your eyes get some rest and your lungs get fresh air!
