Exam season is here, but remain calm. Whilst studying is the primary solution to all of your problems, there are a number of habits you could adopt to make your studying experience easier. This year, Malta Daily and PwC are coming together to give you a helping hand, here are 5 study habits you should adopt during exam season:
1. Find a good studying spot
Study Feng Shui is a thing and we cannot recommend it enough. Finding the perfect spot to study, maintain good posture and rest all of your necessary equipment is the perfect starting point to your exam journey.
2. Shut down social media
One of studying’s biggest enemies. Social media notifications will attempt to deviate you from your path but if you eliminate them completely from your study circle, you’ll be saving yourself so much time.
3. Organise your notes
This is best kept in mind on the first day of the semester but if, along the way, you manage to make a disaster out of your notes, there still is hope. Organise your notes on a topic-by-topic basis and give yourself space to understand the context.
4. Plants, music and aromatherapy
Oftentimes, science enjoys tinkering with nature but in the case of studying, nature does in fact contribute in a positive way. Multiple studies state that lavender has positive effects on memory whilst sandalwood and frankincense may help with focus.
5. Eat brain food
Your mind and body need the proper nutrients to function and consuming superfoods may give you the boost you need to take your studies to the next level. These include blueberries, avocados, walnuts, broccoli, fatty fish and yoghurt.
