I'm at my parents house to study for a very important exam in my country, so important like study for college for instance. So I apply many techniques as mindmaps, rests of 10 minutes between 50 minutes of study, this way I can study for, 4-5 hours (counting on the clock literally) per day. But I schedule to do another things related to my study also, like review my mind maps, to make a strong connection between what's new and what I already know in my studies. However, at night I like to play some games in my computer, like Need for Speed and many others, even when I know that won't help me in my objectives, when I should be studying instead of playing video games.
I saw a talk with Dr Jeffrey M Schwartz where he says that the brain is different from the mind, which was very new for me, honestly. And he says you can change the bad habits for good ones. How that is possible? How can I be more productive in my studies? Stoping procrastinating? (I already tought about deleting my facebook account =] )
Any help ? Ideas ?
