Study Hack: Guided Meditation
According to Very Well Mind*, the right amount of stress can increase your memory performance. But too much stress inhibits learning because the stress hormones that are released impede the formation of memories. This is not helpful if you are trying to learn a new concept or recall an old concept for a test. Stress can also be exhausting which makes it difficult to learn. The good news is there are things you can do to reduce your stress. The Smiling Mind app has free guided meditations and mindful activities - some as short as three minutes that you can do before and during your study.
