5. Clean your study environment and study table first.
A good environment helps with the motivate to study. A tidy environment will surely assist you in desiring to study whenever you wish to.
I could imaging when I was in a boarding school. living alone and doing things the way I want. In my ss1 I don’t mind how my room looks like, how scanty it was nor how untidy it was. This bad and dangerous habit continues until I saw my first term result. It was hmmm do you want to hear how it was?
I know you want to hear but I will tell you later.
Always make your room clean, tidy, neat and conducive for reading.
6. Do not read on bed
I know it is very exciting and amazing reading on bed. But before I say things concerning ready on bed, I would like to ask you few questions.
Have you been studying on bed?
Do you enjoy reading on bed?
I know you would say yes, but the real truth is that reading on bed has no real benefit. One who reads on bed is likely not to remember anything that he or she claim to have read. I therefore advice you to always read in a good environment, in a clean surrounding and with a comfortable chair and table.
7. Take break
The human brain may be a super computer which means it can store lot of information in the memory and our memory and perception can be trusted, but that doesn’t mean that your brain is a machine that doesn’t get tired.
The brain gets tired as well the body and you need to be conscious of this two things. Which are;
I. When your body is tired
II. When your brain is tired.
If these two important aspect of you gets tired and you continue to stress yourself then you are constituting a very dangerous disease which could be very harmful to health thereby causing mental disorder or malfunctionality of the body.
Therefore, always take break after few hours of reading. Always engage yourself in recreational activities; recreational activities are those sporting activities which a person performs during free time or leisure hour.
8. Do not study boring subject
There is no how you will like all the teachers in your school. Statistic has shown that an individual who doesn’t like a particular lecturer may end up not liking the course being taken by the lecturer.
How do I avert this?
When you don’t read a course because you do not like the teacher then you are bound to fail that course.
The first step is;
I. Look for an easier course that’s understandable.
II. Study the course you will easily understand.
III. Read a very simple topic from the subject/course.
IV. Evaluate what you have read and if you are able to answer the questions you have asked yourself then you are good.
V. Now read those subjects or courses which you always find difficult.
I sincerely believe these steps will help you to avoid sleep while you study.
9. Get enough exercise.
Exercise is as good as reading well. Health practitioners has made us to understand that a good health is wealth and nothing can be exchanged with health.
Your health matters as a student. To keep fit, you need to indulge yourself in various recreational activities such as swimming, running, jogging, volleying, cycling and other enjoyable activities.
This exercise which some people see as a waste of time helps in metabolism and also helps the memory and brain to function properly.
10. Ask your self questions.
After reading, always ask yourself questions such as;
Have I read?
Do i understand what I have read?
If yes then be happy because you have really read. If no then you need to make sure you go through the texts again and again, those process will really make you not to sleep at night, because it will make you to be busy will studying at night.
