Nothing beats being able to look at your phone, snooze your alarm, and go back to sleep with the realization that you still have another 30 minutes to sleep. There’s really no better feeling than seeing your significant other getting dressed for work. Meanwhile, you still have maybe 15 or 30 more minutes to sleep. It’s the best invention ever – until 9 minutes later, when you have to end up pressing the snooze button again. You end up having to…

    Incremental Studying

    Have you ever pulled an overnighter before an exam, just to realize that you don’t really remember everything that you’ve studied? Yes, I, for one, have been in that situation. It’s really never a good idea to study everything that you need to learn at one time. Rather, you should break up your study into incremental parts that you slowly build on. I know that most of my friends who aced that exam studied in a similar fashion. In a learning point of view, it actually makes sense. If you’re learning to play guitar, your tutor will usually teach you…

    Ask for Feedback Following the 30% Rule

    Some of you may have had an occurrence back in college when you had to submit a 10-page long assignment, but being so much of a perfectionist, you just had to create the best possible even on the rough draft. You spend so many hours of your time on the project, getting everything right, and when you finally go ask for feedback from your teacher before creating the finished paper, your teachers says you got it all wrong – and on a small technicality. You have done the paper correctly, but you have done it on a topic irrelevant to…

    How to Curb your Social Media Addiction

    We may not want to admit it, but many of us have an addiction to social media. Before you start shaking your head and denying it to yourself, answer the following questions: Is checking your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter the first thing you do when you wake up and the last thing you do before going to sleep? Are you prioritising your social media use over interactions with people you care about? Do you find yourself instinctively reaching for your phone with no real purpose? If so, then you have an addiction, and you’re not alone. According to Social Media…

    Save Money When Purchasing Nootropic Supplements

    Save Money when Purchasing Nootropic Supplements With the price of nootropics, it might be sensible to save a little money on the side if possible, wouldn’t it? After all, a dollar is still a dollar, and you can get something from the dollar shop with that extra dollar – and heck, if you save ten dollars, you’ll get ten things from the dollar shop. (That was a bad joke, I know) However, if you are serious on saving some money on nootropic supplements, you’ve come to the right place. Sometimes, we may purchase nootropic supplements without stopping and thinking about…
