💡Studying for a big test? Trying to learn something new? Our brain is only capable of remembering 3 new things at a time. Yup, just 3. But we can get around this to help make studying more efficient. Here are some tips, neuro approved, for remembering more from your study session:
☝🏼Try to connect new information with things you have learned before. How does this fact relate to something you already know? Does it remind you of something? ✌🏼Repetition is key! 🗝 Going back to information you've learned and reviewing is crucial to getting those facts into your long term memory.
👌🏼(there's no 3 emoji so work with me here) Try to teach the information you're learning to someone else or discuss it with a friend. This is a way for you to verbally express what you know and help build more of those connections in your brain -
Hope these little facts are useful and help get all those little bits of information into your brain for good 👊🏼Happy studying! 🤓
