10 Proven Ways To Help Learn Anything Better

7. Taking breaks can help you learn anything better

Psychology research has shown that our ability to stay focused on a single task declines after about 20-25 minutes. It seems like a short amount of time- and it is. It may be hard to get in the “groove” with these short intervals, but it’s been proven to be the best for learning new information.[4]

How can you do it? This learning strategy was designed by neuropsychologist Francesco Cirillo. Set a timer for 20 minutes intervals. When time is up, take a short break and do something comfortable, like chatting with someone, checking your email, stretching, etc. and drink water, because a dehydrated brain doesn’t perform as well as a hydrated one. After a few minutes, get back to studying.
