Close to the Thanksgiving break, there is probably a lot going on in school right now. With the weather getting colder, it is difficult to focus and study for exams and tests.
Organizing is not always something that happens just in your bedroom, in your binder, in your briefcase. In this fast-paces 21st century world of too much always on information, organizing our thoughts and ideas for school or work or just keeping out schedules takes some planning and preparation.
We found this video by Study by Jess on how to memorize information better with little tricks and found this very useful!
In this video Jess is answering a question by one of her fans on how to memorize information better. As she is saying, it really depends on the person because everyone is responding differently to information. She talks about three different learning styles:
1. Visual Learners:
Some people learn best with learning with sight. Techniques for this could include mind maps, illustrations with cards and diagrams. This can help a lot if the information is very difficult and complex and makes it easier to organize it that way to have a good overview.
2. Read/Write Learners:
Similar to the visual learners, instead of mind maps and illustrations, the read/write learners can organize information with writing down sentences to break complex information down. Writing things down from different sources and creating a summary of what is learned helps to keep an overview over the information.
3. Auditory Learners:
This learning style is for those who learn best with listening to given information. This could be happening when the teacher is explaining something and the person is listening to that information. It is important to not only listen to the information but also really engage and start a conversation or discussion or ask questions. Also, when explaining the information to someone, this can help much to memorize what is learned.
4. Kinaesthetic Learners:
This last way of learning depends on body language and gestures. Jess gives the example of playing charade. This way information can be learned in a playful way and therefor be more memorable.
In addition, here is an overview of the different learning styles in case you want to read more about them:
I hope this helped your learning to be a little bit more organized!
Life is busy whether you’re a parent, a professional or both, and there’s really not much time to battle against disorganization. Things fall apart. That’s just how it is.
We all need a little help to battle against these forces.
Even something as trivial as store receipts can tend to pile up and overwhelm us.
You might have a whole pile of receipts at home, in the kitchen or stuffed in a draw or your purse or wallet. Instead of just throwing them away or filling your drawers, you can organize them in a way that can help you come tax time or if you need to return something or even to just keep track of your budget.
Here are 7 tips to organizing receipts:
Create categories and subcategories for all your receipts
Find a contain (ie: a zippered binder works well) in which you can store your receipts.
Start sorting receipts one by one in the container categories so you can easily find them.
Place them in a chronological order so you can easily sort through them.
Staple or paper clip them together as they are small and can easily be lost.
Work at this a little each week – takes just a few minutes — so they do not get piled up and out of control.
Here is an example video on how to organize your receipts:
