STUDY SMART: Alternate where you study
Conventional wisdom tells us to sit in the same place to form a positive habit and create consistency for studying. Recent studies have discovered this may do the exact opposite; the monotony of routine and the same environment makes it difficult for our minds to create new connections. To keep information fresh, change up where you study. Try a quiet cafe instead of the library.
“Any variance that we see in educational performance that’s identifiable by race, gender or ethnicity is not because of racial or ethnic differences, but the social policies and social practices which lead to these differences.”
