This article talks about managing time and good a study environment. It says to study for 2 hours for each hour of class time. To use your time wisely, the article mentions 7 steps that you should follow.

First, clear your schedule and do not overextend yourself. Second, get motivated. Third, prioritize. Fourth, make sure you understand the task. Fifth, break down what you are studying into chunks, and focus on each thing separately. Last, if you are not enjoying studying your subject at all, find a way to make it more enjoyable.

The article says to study your most intense subject during the day, when you are most alert. Grouping together with other people can also help you study. Your posture and mobility is also another important factor. Some people prefer to sit at a desk or table, while other people prefer to sit on a couch, or on the floor. Figure out which way suits you best. Further, some people are able to sit for long periods of time, and others need to take breaks often. Make sure to takes breaks whenever you need to.

Sound is another thing that can help you study. If you like to listen to music while you study, classical music is the best. Lighting and temperature are also important. Make sure there is enough lighting so you will not strain your eyes. As for the temperature, make sure you are comfortable enough to study, which means not too hot or not too cold. If you follow these simple instructions, your studying time will progress greatly!

This article talks about how to manage your time wisely and how to choose a good study environment. I think it is a well written article. I have followed the 7 steps to using my time wisely, and I have truly succeeded.

The "Study Environment" section benefited me as well. I never realized that the temperature of a room could affect how a person studies. I never listen to music while I study, but after reading this article, I listened to classical music, and I noticed that I paid more attention to my task. I would definitely recommend this article to any student in high school, college, and beyond.

There are different ways to study like having clasical music in your background to concentrate, having breaks as much as you need. Just when you're studying don't kill yourself studying too much. Also take off everything that will distract you on your studies. Talk to people when your done studying and have people help you if you need help.s

My ultimate study enviroment

My ultimate study time and environment is very important to my success as an online student. My preference in study time would have to be in the evening, on a full belly of course. Good air circulation and great lighting is a must to keep a motivated energy level and pace. Some people prefer to listen to music or to work in a quiet setting however; I prefer to listen to the news and reflect on the greater good that I can achieve in my life.

For me to be a successful online student my study environment would have to be in a quiet place, good lighting and nothing that can distract me. To be able to stay motivated I would probably have to take breaks occasionally, get up and move around for a little bit and then go back to working.

How I manage time and my environment for studying

I have managed my time by setting a time schedule for me. I work in morning till 9 am. I set 9:30 am till noon , then return back to work and if i have not finished anything for that day I do it after dinner. Meanwhile, i am doing schoolwork while it's quiet for studying and doing work assignments.

My Map

The idea of my map was very interesting. it shows how we can easily draw a map and put the information that we need to memorize on the curves of the trees so we can remember them easily when we need them. The nature of our mind is the way that likes the curves instead of the rigid lines so the information can stay in our mind with the hooks. I'm going to use this method for myself too.
