Here at CTP, we teach our students the exercise of Mindfulness.
Mindfulness is a skill of being aware of all your senses and being able to focus on the present task rather than the past or the future. A study, performed by University of California, has found that practicing Mindfulness has led to students being less stressed about tests and improving their scores by 60 points on average. The students were able to concentrate better on the test. So, what other benefits does Mindfulness have?
It can improve your memory! After studying hard for a test, hours on end, you usually find that you can’t retain any information you just read. A bummer for sure! But by practicing Mindfulness, your memory improves and the information you just learned stays in your brain. You can easily retain that information for your test and score better.
