…bit hole. The Internet is filled with temptation and our brains are always hungry for dopamine hits. Be it scrolling down your Twitter or Instagram feed or watching high definition pornography, these are habits that alter the very nature of how your brain works. My attention span is very dear to me and I have no intention of losing it over trivial things. At the dining table, I want to respectful of my family and friends. If I’m talking to you while eating, I want to be able to give you and the the food as much attention as need be.
After every 10 minutes, or after every paragraph you’ve read, explain in your own words what you’ve just learned. This can be pretty difficult, but you will soon find out what parts you don’t quite understand yet. Teaching is the best way to learn, even if there is no one around! Pretend like you’re explaining it to someone else, and once you figure out that you don’t understand a certain part very well: research it right away, and write the answer down! By actually writing it down, you’re thinking about the answer even more, which makes it a lot easier to remember.
