This could come as a surprise for some, but there has been research into what postures are best to study- and no its not sitting on a desk!
What researchers did: They split a class of students into 4 groups & gave then an article to memorise. The 4 groups were further instructed to take as long as they feel to memorise it.
The difference was there posture- they were asked to be either lying down, sitting on a chair, standing on a spot, or walking around in a room with the paper in hand.
Results: No surprise here, the group that was lying down took the longest time & still scored lowest marks.
The standing group did better than the sitting one. But the students who were slowly walking around in the room learnt rapidly & scored highest.
Further more, the 'lying down' group remembered better in a similar posture.
So think about it friends, you should decide to be active for each of the 30- 40 minute of each study session in an upright posture. Then take a small break & resume again.
What to do in the break, we shall see in a later post.
