College Tips: How To Study More Effectively

If you get tired, learn to rest, not to quit. – Anonymous

I actually like studying, although it is pretty annoying sometimes. However, I think that studying is not for everybody and not everybody can study. Of course, I don’t think it wrong. Everybody can do things that others can’t do and that’s totally fine I think.

Anyway, there are a few ways how you can make studying a little bit funnier and more productive. As I said above, studying is not for everybody but maybe these tips can help you with that.


1| Try something new

Are you always bored when you do your homework or learn for an exam? Then try something new. For example, you can rewrite your notes from your notebook on a baking paper or try mnemonic devices (here is my favourite on remembering planets). It may sound funny, but it should! There is a chance you will remember more information because you do something new – something interesting. So, your brain will thank you.

2| DIY School Tool

There are so many super cool crafts that can help you work more effectively so why not take advantage? On Pinterest, you can find a lot of DIY inspiration or check this cool video on Youtube. Just make your studying time more interesting.

3| Organise it!

Discipline is one of the most important things in our life and if you want to make things work, you need to be organised. Guess what? You need your own super and well-arranged planner and a pen. If staying organised is quite challenging, check out my latest post on how to stay organised.

4| Have some rest

If you work, you also need to rest. It’s a simple equation. I really recommend you this app. I use it when everything around me falls apart. But if you want to have some rest without your eyes on the screen, then I recommend you make your favourite drink (you can make your own tea here) and go out, read a book or just listen to music.

5| Study Playlist

Music is something that helps me with almost everything and because I love Spotify (by the way I really recommend you to download this app) I always make my list for “the special occasions”. I have to say I work better with music in my ears. If you want, you can check out my playlist.

6| Candles and Flowers 

This tip is really optional and it depends on what you like. Anyway, it may sound quite romantic, but it’s important to feel good about your place. Everybody has their own rituals or traditions, but I (always) light a candle and put some nice smelling flowers on my desk. It looks cosy and nicely.

Do you have some studying tips and tricks you want to share with other? I want to hear them all since I would like to explore new tricks.
