Think “I am a genius”
Change your perception of yourself and begin to see yourself as one!
Do what geniuses do
be always open to new ideas!
Get on your feet
you remember 10% more information when you stand up (this is due to the fact that more blood goes to your brain when you stand). Maybe that’s why professors are so smart.
Consume lots of H2O
your brain is 70% water, and most people do not drink enough water for the brain to function optimally. Remember: Coffee and pop dehydrates your brain. You should drink an 8oz cup of water for every 25lbs of body weight every day!
Get a study strategy/plan
The absence or the presence of a study strategy is the greatest single predictor of post-secondary achievement.
Write down all your goals, if you don’t write them – they’re just wishes! If you are a student, on a sheet of paper write down all the subjects you are enrolled in this term and write the grade you want in each class. Post this in your room, on your wish board, stick it to your bathroom mirror, locker, or even post on Pinterest – the more you see it, the better.
Close your eyes and think of what you want. It is an interesting fact that the brain is picture driven and not word driven. By turning concepts into pictures, your retention goes up 800%! Just picture that!
Cross Lateral Movement
This movement gets both hemispheres of your brain working at the same time. An easy way to do this is to take your right hand and touch your left knee, then have your left hand touch your right knee. Repeat 15-20 times. NEVER begin studying until you do this exercise. And do it every so often while you are studying!
Take 2 minutes of cross laterals & walking. Remember: NO TV or phone calls. These activities are not breaks for your brain. Formula: Brain Breaks = age + 2 to a maximum of 20 minutes (i.e. if you are 15, take a break every 17 minutes)!
Write it Down!
If you take notes, you increase your chances of a good score on the exam by 50% (even if you never look through the notes again)!
