Motivating Your Memory! 6 Tips and Tricks To Jog Your Memory 1. Chunk it: When information is grouped into smaller bits, it becomes easier to recall. (Much like phone numbers) 2. Recite and repeat: You’re more likely to recall a piece of info when you have physically said it before and done so several times.3. Be selective: Pay attention to chapter previews, summaries, review questions, terms in bold print, and visual elements. 4. Create associations: When you associate the facts you learn in class to real life experiences, the facts become more personal and memorable.5. Make flash cards: Not only does this make you process the info by writing it down, you’ve now given yourself a quick study guide for later. 6. TEACH IT!: When you teach a topic to someone else, you are showing that you have mastery and full comprehension over it. 4

3 Tips on How to Focus! Helpful Noises Try instrumental music: Classical music Video game soundtracks Environment sounds:Rainy Mood is often paired with calming instrumental YouTube videos. These are all sources that if used correctly, might help you focus on whatever boring or tedious task you need to complete. Do NOT use music with lyrics in it. No Multitasking!It causes your focus to be spread over multiple tasks thus denying an adequate amount of attention to each task. Technology should be ignored. Texting, checking emails, and music with lyrics all distract from the task at hand. The noises previously mentioned are best used when you need to ignore conversations or outside noises. Switch it upIf you find yourself hitting a wall with a particular task, don’t be afraid to step back. Try working on a different assignment. Do some housework/cleaning.Go for a short walk. You probably won’t make quality progress if you tiredly force yourself through an assignment. If you get stuck, take a short break so that you can come back to it with fresh eyes and fresh determination!8
