If you’re the kind of person who is used to studying late, perhaps right up until just before bed, you’ll find in today’s article that it’s actually best not to study before bed. So, stop after the books, let’s see what else you can do instead.

Why would you be better off not studying at the end of the day and above all not studying until just before going to bed? Simple: you make a useless effort and you do not get the desired results.

Sooner or later, it can happen to everyone to have to face the crazy and desperate night of study with triple coffee, but it is by no means an effective method. This is not how you will bring home results, you will only weaken your mind and body.

Do Not Study Before Bed: It Does Not Induce Sleep

Bed Bugs insomnia sleep

Did you ever think that sleeping helps you to learn? Well, that’s right.

There are now numerous scientific studies that speak of the importance of sleep in learning.

Sleeping well for the right number of hours is essential to allow the sedimentation of concepts.This happens because during the hours of sleep the brain changes and grows, creating new brain connections thanks to which the assimilated information is consolidated.

But the fact remains that keeping your head on the books until the last, and then closing them and slipping under the covers, is not a healthy thing. Certainly, putting your head on the pillow while continuing to think about what you still have to study, about the things you can’t remember, and so on is not the best way to sleep. Indeed, you probably risk sleeping badly and getting little rest.

Stop studying at least an hour or two before going to bed

Try to end your study day at least an hour or two before going to sleep and remember that you will need to review at the end of the day as the last thing.

What would “what is the end-of-day review” look like? Are you telling me you haven’t read the article on review cycles yet? Read it now, what are you waiting for?

That’s right because during the day you study an avalanche of stuff. Reviewing allows you to recall the things that are really important, allowing them to consolidate during the hours of sleep.

An Example

Imagine having a little archivist in your brain who at night, without disturbing you, takes the things you have studied and archives them.

When you finish the day of study by reviewing it is as if you stacked neatly in front of him all the things studied during the day. Doing so makes it easy for him to arrange them in a place in his memory where you will find them the next day.

If, on the other hand, you do not go back to it, it is as if the chaos of information is piled up in front of him that he will not be able to fix! He will not be able to archive the important things and put aside the unnecessary ones, the next day as a result you will not remember almost anything.

Before Bed, Imagine Your Brain Growing

And when it’s time to go to bed, do this relaxing mental exercise. Imagine your brain growing,changing, and improving.

Going to sleep with this positive and serene feeling, this “information upload” image, will make you fall asleep peacefully and give a boost to your brain that, feeling called into question, will begin to work on the information.

I hope you have understood that you don’t need to kill yourself studying late at night to get good results, it is indeed important to keep healthy and balanced rhythms (nobody likes bags under the eyes).
