It can be hard to know how to study based on every subject. Teachers usually point study tips out during their lectures and oftentimes students just do not notice. Luckily here are some study tips to help improve and stay on track.

First, you should put your phone on airplane mode. This ensures your phone does not distract you. Another thing is, if you do not want to put your phone on airplane mode, you can play chill music or classical music to help you focus more on what you are studying. Playing music that is very upbeat can start to distract you.

Also, try writing your notes instead of typing them; it helps you remember subjects better and make sure to reread your notes at home while using color codes for subjects you think are important or questions you have for the teacher. It is better if you write your notes in blue ink because you will remember it better.

One thing you should always do while studying is to set a timer for 30-50 minutes and give yourself a 10-minute break in-between, so you can have a break and not become stressed.

To stay on track with all these tips, use a mirror or window and write important dates, such as the date of a test on it with a erasable marker. Then write down what days you can study; if you have after school activities that take up a lot of time, such as a club sport or piano lessons.

Lastly, never ever start your homework or studying on an empty stomach. Try avoiding any sugary drinks or foods and energy drinks; they will make you crash before you are done studying.
