It comes as natural feeling that we all want to learn staff with ease, the good news is with a little afford it is possible to sharpen your memory the way you will learn easier than before. Although, it takes practice and developing the ability to control your emotions.
According to Leon, Founder & Editor at Novodus talks about official studies done on memory, he explains “life itself as it comes is the best tutor/mentor. You just need to want to open up to new and unknown with no fear and indolence”.
Yes, learning is emotional because it is evoking in you the idea that learning is difficult, hard to memorize and keep stuff in your memory for later recall. Nobody said it is easy unless you are a genius with photographic memory or you are autistic able to memorize impossible but that would just not work well because you as an autistic person would not be able to read this article to comprehend its content and use it in your favor.
This is exactly what it takes, to be normal but with a strong will and desire to improve and succeed and to finish a project once you have started it. Just be yourself, don't compare your abilities to learn and memorize with other people, we are all different. One is better than another, but no one is the best in everything. What makes you think you are the best for yourself is the ability to accept your weaknesses and turn them into your strengths!
There are ways how to do it, it is proven, and tested. All you need to do is:
Control your emotions
Find a quiet place or anywhere where you would feel comfortable, and take a few deep breaths. It is not just about to get more oxygen in your brain but to calm your emotions like fear or unwillingness to learn/study. You might think that it is useless and you are wasting your time by just taking extra time to breathe. Well, you breathe anyway, you would say, but you do it very superficially, and automatically with no control. If you breathe deeply in a controlled way for a few minutes, this will help you to take away all your junk thoughts, and negative emotions away.
Think of this the way; nothing comes cheap, but this is for free! Ok, time is money, they say, but you can easily make up the lost time later when you study. Trust me, you need to calm down, take your emotions under control, send the negative ones away, and get on with it! That brings us to another ability to be more patient.
Be more patient
Patience takes practice just like learning. It is easy to get destructed or even frustrated by the volume of the stuff you have to learn. It evokes in you the idea that there isn’t left enough time for learning. You need to become more patient and try to deal with stuff with ease as it comes, with ease. So, you need more time, and time is passing by even faster when you feel impatient. Impatience leads you to inattentiveness and agitation, furthermore to nervousness.
When you learn to be patient, time goes by in your favor. You need to learn how to control your emotions first to be patient. Another way to make stuff easier to learn is the ability to organize.
Organize more to gain control and more time
This one is easy to do. Just don't be that lazy, and clean the mess, will you! Not only in your kitchen after you finished your meal but also on your desk in your study room. Simply, be more organized.
Don't just stare in the screen
Computers, laptops, and internet access to online information make it very easy and efficient to find and learn stuff. Hmm, I am talking here about the whole package on how to improve your memory. That means you should grab some books on the subject you learn. You should write stuff on the paper by pen, and not just to type it on your laptop. This is like an exercise helping you to activate more neurons faster to make new connections to learn and this way to comprehend better the subject.
Remember, it is not always about memorizing but understanding the concept of the subject. The easier you understand the concept the better you learn it, and the better you can talk about it, possibly memorize it. It is proven that students who took notes on laptops performed worse on conceptual questions than students who took notes by hand.
Be more open to the world around you with a smile
Yes, open up. Don't be frowning or rejecting new ideas and techniques. If you don’t try you won’t know, will you? Smile more, even for yourself when nobody around. The day always starts with you, so if you give it a go with a smile, what can go wrong, actually, it all with go right, will it!
How Smiling affects your Brain; each time you smile your brain feels happy. When a smile flashes across your face; dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin are all released into your bloodstream, making not only your body relax but also work to lower your heart rate and blood pressure.
That’s it, my dear readers. It doesn't take much to give it a go with a smile and be happy for little things. Do whatever it takes to set your mood the way you will feel encouraged to learn new stuff, and don't forget that practice is what you need to memorize and recall stuff. Because the final results always count most, when your day of exams or tests comes and you will pass with a good grade. This is a positive result, an achievement making you proud and happy just the way you are!
