Whatever the above links may say, there is enough time to investigate the above subject. Since we spend 15 to 18 long years in schools. You must learn first hand what is the best way to study. And all it takes is 10-15 days.

One need to answer few things to understand what is concentration and why it is most important.?

  1. What do you want to do by spending 15 long years in schools?
  2. Are you learning things which you will never use in your life itme?
  3. What do you think a person can make use of information by using one information at a time?

 

There is flow of information. There are links between one information with other information. You need time to make those links and stored the linked information in your brain. In future when you have to use information, you will recalls information in blocks the way you stored the information.

You can compare the above process to the process of defragmenting your hard disk. If a file is scattered all around the hard disk, the computer becomes slow. When you defrag the computer bits of file stored in different places is combined into one large file.

The same way the brain works. Rather brain is must better. But there is one problem. The defrag system of the brain is very complicated and difficult. In fact it is better to store the information in a better way.

For using the information for use in life, one must learn to use lot of information at the same time.

Tips for better results

  1. Study in blocks of 10-15 minutes each.
  2. Take frequent breaks between studies doing nothing but lying down with closed eyes. Every organ or sense draws on your concentration.
  3. 10-15 minutes of study is enough to tire your brain.
  4. The information that you studied has not gone in deep memory zone.
  5. You need to rest and try again to put to information in deep memory zone.
  6. After 10-15 minutes of rest recall the subject that you had studied few minutes back.
  7. Analyse the subject with the information previous stored in the brain. Collate various segments of information.
  8. Attempt to store the collated information in the brain’s deep memory zone.
  9. Practice not to study the same subject again and again to verify whether you still can recall the subject.
  10. Do mock tests but not very frequently.
  11. Do not multi task when studying.
  12. Multi tasking practice is good for physical works.
  13. But for brain, it should be busy in collating various information rather then mixing lots of unrelated informations.

You are ready for becoming dangerous and most valuable brain in the world.

Now there is another supporter from famous Forbes.com to support my theory of moderate activity.

 

The world has started learning.

 

Any excessive exercise causes inflammation and will further cause in increase in weight after some time. Doing mild exercises like walking for 5 minutes 3 times in one hour should help. See earlier post for explanation

 

Calorie calculations for Weight Loss

Advantages of Interval Walking over any other form of Weight Loss program

 

  • Almost every body, with even mild disability, can walk. My parents are 82 years. I have advised them to walk 40 steps every 30 minutes. And it is doing wonders so far.
  • Walking burns 5 calories per minute.
  • Walking for 5 minutes does not tire you out in most of the cases of people below 60 years of age.
  • Walking 5 minutes every hour will burn 25 calories. 5 x 5 calories
  • Walking for 16 hours a day for 5 minutes every hour will burn 16 x 25 = 400 calories.
  • The resting metabolic rate of a over weight person is about 1.1 to 1.25 calories per minute.
  • After walking for 5 minutes, the resting metabolic rate will start coming back to normal levels of 1.1 to 1.25. But that will not happen all of a sudden. After first 5 minutes the resting metabolic rate may come down to 4 calories per minute. By the end of hour hour the resting metabolic rate may still be 1.5 or above. That will take the average metabolic rate for 1 hour to above 2. Let us take it to be 2 calories per minute.
  • In 24 hours there are 1440 minutes. That will translate to 0.75 x 1440 = 1080 calories.
  • Total calories burnt in 24 hours due to walking will be 1080 + 400 = 1480.
  • This translates to loss of 400 grams every day in 3 days if food intake is restricted to previous level of 1800 to 2000 calories per day.
  • However after some initial weight loss the food intake can be increased to compensate for high calorie burning.
  • Alternatively walking can be reduced to 5 minutes every 90 minutes or 120 minutes.
  • Weight Loss of 4 to 5 kg a month is very safe weight loss.
  • However 1480 calorie deficit in 24 hours is very high and will cause extreme fatigue which people would not be willing to admit.
  • So walking for 5 minutes every hour for 3 hours in morning and 3 hours in the evening can do wonders to your body weight.

So Happy weight loss for your life.
