How to Make Learning Process More Productive and Less Stressful
Education is a lifelong process. Of course, education in schools, colleges, universities comes to mind first. But every day of our life is an educational process. And to be successful, we need to receive a good education in childhood and teenage. The older we become, the more difficult it is to learn something new. So, use your young brain to prepare yourself for bright future!
Yes, studying is hard. Education is a long-term investment and being a grown-up it is even more difficult to study. But the learning process is really good for our brain, just like sports is good for our body. It trains and stimulates the intellect, holds our competency on a high level, helps exchange experience and enriches our personality and inner culture. So, let’s try to find ways and make the learning process easier and provide success and fun.
Ways to make studying easier
- Try to evaluate your abilities honestly. There always are some ‘stars’ in every class. There are students with average skills and those who hardly cope with the studying program. Evaluate your abilities in the chosen major and stick to them. If you are artistic, don’t try to succeed in accounting or chemistry. If you have a mathematician’s brain, consider economics instead of language classes. How capable are you in the majors and courses you chose for yourself? Give yourself a serious answer, judge your abilities accordingly and choose your load not trying to measure yourself up to other students in your classes. This saves you a lot of self-confidence and makes studying more productive.
- Practice! Practice is what makes everything perfect. Try doing things. Make and correct mistakes. Put your knowledge into practice as soon as you receive it, even before studies end. An excellent practice possibility is to find a job you major in from the first year of studies. Of course, it makes life much more challenging, but it makes studying easier! You learn one major from two sources – theoretical in college and practical at work.
- There is another nice way to learn – it is to teach! When you teach someone, you go deeper into the subject. Also, you repeat the information and practice actions again when you explain or show someone what you know. Even if you don’t completely understand the topic, go through it with your classmates – together you learn faster and better!
- In return, use services of private tutors and different professional services. For example, if you have to pass a test by writing a narrative essay, think of using custom essay writing service. “But isn’t that cheating?” – You ask. No, it is not, if you learn what is written in that paper. You get some free time to learn more, while when your essay is ready, you read it thoroughly and understand and learn the topic.
Don’t strive for perfection. The ideal student is a myth. Indeed, some psychologists believe that a healthy personality should be strongly looking towards excellence and those who do not dream of top results are just mediocre couch potatoes. But at the same time, there also is a concept of pathological perfectionism. It’s a mania; it can be called a mental disease! So, be reasonable, try to do your best but do not cross the line of adequate life perception. Strive to be outstanding in knowledge and skills, not only on your student’s report card. You don’t have to be a genius. You have to be successful and happy.
Study with pleasure – it is easy!
