Last time, I talked about "why adults don't study".
Why don't adults study? There are seven main reasons.
- I'm tired from work
- I don't need it
- I don't want to do more
- I don't have time to study
- There is no motivation
What happens if you don't study? I also talked about. There are three main types.
- You will not be able to respond to changes
- Knowledge does not increase
- Not to be deceived (important)
As mentioned above, I talked about "why adults do not study". If you want to know more, please follow the link below.
What if an adult studies?
So what happens when adults study? I will talk about. There are two main types.
- Widen your horizons
- You can get ahead
①Widen your horizons
By studying, you can acquire various knowledge and broaden your horizons of life.Of course, depending on your goals, you can also play an active role in other fields.
②You can get ahead
If you work for a company, you may be able to succeed if you learn it by studying.If you get ahead, your salary will increase and your life will be enriched.
Understand the difference between a childhood brain and an adult brain!
To find out how to study for adults, first understand the difference between a childhood brain and an adult brain!
For example, when I was studying, I couldn't learn it and I wondered if it was because of my age. You had better stop thinking like that. The reason is related to the brain.
Adults' brains grow slower than children, and adults tend to have limited interests, so they can't remember anything smoothly with the same idea as when they were children. Therefore, it is not possible to acquire the same knowledge as when I was a child.
However, just because I'm an adult doesn't mean that my brain is calm. If you keep studying, you can reduce aging.
Intellectual curiosity is the key!
"Intellectual curiosity" is the key to efficient study for adults.It is important to have a high awareness of "I want to know and want to learn", and it is easy to remember what I like and what I have intellectual curiosity.
As for the mechanism of the brain, there is a part called the amygdala that feels "like / dislike" nearby, and it affects the function of the hippocampus that controls memory. If you feel like "I like it, it's fun", it will have a positive effect on the hippocampus and it will be easier to remember.
On the contrary, if you feel "I don't like it, I don't want to do it", I can't remember the knowledge easily. Based on these things, in order to study efficiently using the mechanism of the brain, it is important to study while stimulating the feeling of love and intellectual curiosity.
Let's study for adults!
From here, I will talk about the study method that suits adults! Forget about the study method you used to study when you were a student, and study in a way that is unique to adults! There are four main types.
- Study method to prolong concentration
- Study method to establish memorization ability
- How to study trends and countermeasures
- Clearance time study method
①Study method to prolong concentration
It is easy to think that if you study for hours, you will naturally acquire knowledge.
However, after studying for hours, I can't learn it.It is more efficient to study in a short time than to study lazily. Set your study time to 30 minutes or 1 hour and concentrate on your studies.
Having a time limit makes it easier for you to concentrate more than sloppy.
②Study method to establish memorization ability
The adult brain forgets 70% of what it remembers the next day.It is easier to establish memorization ability by reviewing a narrow range many times than by studying a wide range.
In order to establish your memorization ability, let's patiently and repeatedly learn the same part over and over again.Repeating makes it easier to see the big picture and gives you a deeper understanding.
③How to study trends and countermeasures
When you first look at a reference book, you may be at a loss because you don't know what to do. Humans are wary of what they see for the first time, and if they know something, they have a characteristic that they like it.
Also, for the same reason, the effect of preparing for the lesson is also effective. You can read or take a quick look at what you are preparing for.Make use of human characteristics and preparations, check past questions first, and try to study trends and countermeasures.
Solve past questions, and if you don't understand the problem, read the explanation first and grasp it to some extent. This way you will be able to understand the contents of the reference book and understand what is important.
④Clearance time study method
I have problems such as being busy with work and not being able to balance housework and childcare.
However,if you use the limited time effectively, it will be a big time.
- Make a memorization card etc. and remember it in travel time
- Read aloud while doing household chores
- Set up a reading app and an e-book about studying on your smartphone and read it automatically.
There are others, but if you use them in various ways, you can make effective use of the gap time. It's worth a try!
As mentioned above, I talked about "Let's study with a study method that suits adults!" There are some things that are difficult to do when you are a student.
Therefore, it is important to study for adults. Let's do it in an adult way!
