How to study more efficient

First of all you need to accept, that you are not studying for grades. You study to get a better understanding about life. Because after all, don’t we want to know what is behind all the facts?

Many people see studying as a painful experience. But it is not,  you can make it so nice as you want it to be. Take your warm cup of chocolate to you’re couch, open you’re book and you are ready. The key for studying more efficient is to enjoy it. Convince yourself because after each studying session you will get a clearer view of life. And when studying remember why you are studying. You want to know and understand life.
Even after finishing your studying, pick a book from a subject you’re interested in. I keep a list of subject that fascinated me. You can do this to, just grab a pen and write down about fifteen subjects you like or even more. You’ll wander off your subjects and see the beauty behind it all.

Take as much time as you need. Make a schedule or set a time for studying. For example take myself around 6 pm to my room and take one of the subjects I need to learn. And just focus only on only that subject. Take notes and write questions down for your teacher.  And be curious about the universe and what you’re studying. Ask questions and Find answers.

Get enough sleep. Sleep is important because when you sleep the ‘real’ study takes places: your brain is taking in all the information. First it filters the important stuff out of all the crap. Then it saves it in the short-memory, we don’t want that. To get it in the long-memory you have to repeat, repeat and repeat. Recall the information is one of the most important thing to study more efficient. And next time look for yourself up which answer is correct instead of grabbing the correct model. This way you’ll recall the information.

And last but not least,
Be prepared to be a life-long student. Because face the truth; you can’t understand all, if you can’t put the knowledge in practice. So make it a habit. Studying takes much energy, after all it is worth it.
Because if you understand life, you’ll succeed in life.

The importance of reading

Today we are going to discuss the importance of reading. Reading has been in our lives since the middle ages but it faded away in the begining of this century. Mainly under teenagers it isn't popular anymore. Therefore I wanted you to show the importance of reading. Because a lot of people don't see the use in books nowadays. So let's get started,
Reading has a lot of benefits to the mind. The first benefit is that the mind needs the practice of reading to sense the words it sees. It develops the ability to connect the words to images in the head. So how more you read how faster and better you will read. And it will give you a bigger arsenal of vocabulary. Further reading create the ability to focus better and really listen to people in general. Because you train your brain to concentrate on one thing at a time. It also improves your memory because when we read, we are using our memory muscle. Joseph ones used a great metaphor, which explains it all;
Reading is to the m…

Live in the moment

During my life, most of the time I noticed awareness just slipped away like sand. I couldn’t get grip on it. And I wanted to live in the moment, for ever. Every time I tried to just focus on it.

So today, I am going to share 6 tips which are going to give you more joy in live. Because when you live in the moment, there is no-one stopping you ;)

These acts which will help you live in the moment,

Why you should never compare yourself with other

I really was a shy twelve-year old (I know that is a long time ago). And during that time, I spent most of my school days comparing myself to others. But after a while, actually years, I finally opened my mind and saw that comparing really is a bad thing in life. Comparing is what sugar is for your health. It ruins attitude towards yourself. In my case, it really destroyed me. But, today I want to show you why you should not compare yourself, and where you should focus on. So let’s get started!

Comparing is never fair.
We all have a different past. We all are different.Maybe that someone has so much money because he started saving on an early age. As a result he has now more money, so what. Let your past be and focus on now. Or maybe your neighbor has a great six-pack. Don’t worry about it you are a good person, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have that six-pack. You will get there, if you want to. After all comparing will just never be fair. Because of the fact that we all are differe…
