Studying: something everyone dreads, but everyone has to do. Here are some tips to help you study to make it a little less dreadful.

1. Study to Instrumental Music

If you’re writing a paper, sometimes music with words can help inspire the words for the paper. But if you’re just studying for an English test, instrumental music will do the trick.

2. Study with a Friend

Sometimes friends can help you develop different techniques for remembering stuff, but make sure to stay on task and not get distracted too easily. Try getting a group of 3-4 people together to study and make sure everyone participates.

3. Give yourself enough time to study

Don’t leave it to the last minute and don’t cram everything into one study session even though everyone thinks they can leave the studying to the last minute.

4. Eat some brain food

Eggs, peanut butter, fruits and veggies can help keep your brain energized and happy. Also, make sure you keep yourself hydrated. A cup of cold water makes for a happy brain.

5. Get that last minute studying in before you go to bed.

Don’t stay up too late studying, most people know that most all-nighters don’t result in an A on that test.

6. Stay off of distracting websites

I know keeping up with everything that is happening on social media is important; but while studying, it is important to block these distracting websites from your mind. We all know how hard it is to contain ourselves when we get a Snapchat or some kind of notification, we tell ourselves, “I will just answer this one, then I will go back to studying.” But we know we can’t just limit ourselves to one Snapchat. Check out this app to help you keep away the distracting websites.

7. Tell a Story

Turning the study you learned into stories can help you make studying a little more bearable, or making a song out of it and repeat it over and over. (Thank you Freddy, I still remember the preamble!)

8. Take a Break!

It’s always okay to take a short break while studying, but make sure you don’t take a 3 hour break and drive around the city, or look up reasons on Google on whether or not penguins have a bellybutton. Don’ t be afraid of studying, you just need to know how to do it right!
