I'm at my parents house to study for a very important exam in my country, of the same importance as studying for college. So I apply many techniques such as mind maps and resting 10 minutes after each 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 other 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 is this possible? How can I be more productive in my studies? Stop procrastinating? (I already thought about deleting my Facebook account =] )
Any help? Ideas?
