- But quickly before that, make sure to subscribe to the Golden Gato YouTube channel, because my awesome animated series will help you learn the secrets of psychology, business, and YouTube. Now, let’s begin.
-Number 01: Get Your Whole Body Involved.
-When people think about learning strategies, how to learn more effectively, the first impulse is to mention the human brain.
-But, the truth is, while the brain is obviously very important when it comes to learning, it is important not to forget that, in the most practical sense, the purpose of the entire human body is to function at the highest capacity possible so that your consciousness and your brain can function at the highest capacity possible.
-That’s why it’s incredibly important to maintain a level of physical activity each day, and practice healthy lifestyle habits that give your entire body a thorough work-out.
-Studies have shown that even 20 minutes of exercise per day can dramatically improve cognitive functions and memory functions.
-When you learn, your brain creates new neural connections. When you practice healthy exercise daily, scientific evidence has shown that these neural connections are created faster.
-This helps fast track your overall alertness, which will make you more apt to learn while investigating new subjects and activities.
-Number 02: Make More Positive Relationships with Others.
-Meaningful relationships can empower your brain in multiple ways.
-When you develop a positive relationship with someone, it elevates your mood, and your brain is put in a happier place.
-This increases your ability to create memories, and because you have an elevated mood and you are happier at the time of their creation, you are more likely to store them and retain them.
-The more positive relationships you make, and the more time you spend cultivating them, the more your mood will be elevated, and the more you will be in a perennial state of happiness and higher cognitive ability.
-So, embrace relationships with family and friends as much as possible. Engaging in conversations with family and friends will also help you talk about and refresh your ideas, recent memories, and help you remember them.
-This kind of consistent recall will help keep your mind agile, which will parlay into greater mental expediency as you try to learn new subjects.
-And, as a bonus, the longer these relationships last, the longer you hold onto these memories, which will benefit your long-term memory.
-Number 03: Practice Positive Reinforcement Towards Others and Yourself.
-In the same way that creating positive relationships will impact your ability to learn faster, spreading positivity, and lending positive reinforcement to the people around you will increase the capacity of your mental facilities and help you learn.
-If you give positive feedback and reinforcement to someone else regarding what they are learning or trying to do, they will be more apt to remember and retain what they were doing.
-The more you do this, the more others will return the favor, and give positive reinforcement to you as you learn and experience new things.
-Positive reinforcement, as a life skill, is one that will compound more and more over time, and help foster a better environment where learning will be faster and easier.
-Number 04: Take Up Hobbies.
-We have all heard that taking up a musical instrument is great for the brain, and that the language of music is as empowering for your cognitive abilities as math.
-Well, it turns out that this is true for many, many hobbies. Whatever you are into, today's modern culture likely provides a way for you to get into your interests on a deeper level, either through personal pursuits or through collaborative endeavors with others.
-This provides a great alternative to strict work and study, and many hobbies give you the chance to incorporate the entire body into the learning process, which, as we have discussed, is great for your cognitive ability.
-For starters, musical instruments and sports are fantastic. No matter what you do as a hobby, try to find something that involves hand-eye coordination.
-Focusing on your hobbies will repeatedly exercise your brain, and structure cognitive abilities, which will leave your mind primed to learn at a faster level whenever it is time to try something new.
