People want to know how to improve memory retention and how to shave off the amount of time it takes to learn new words.
This can happen quite easily – but here are some general guidelines for getting a good nights rest.
- Artificial Light should be banned an hour before bedtime. – Artificial light robs your mind of sleep hormones and disrupts circadian rhytmn.
- Put your phone in a different room – Put your phone in a different room it will force you out of bed when the alarm goes off and it will get radio / electric activity away from your brain.
- Go to sleep before 11PM – again – circadian rhythm gets disrupted and your brain shoots off hormones to keep you awake if you stay up past 11pm.
- Dont eat anything at least 3 hours before bed. Eating before bedtime is just stupid – it also makes you fat.
If you do these four things – your quality of sleep and vicariously your quality of language learning will improve.
I have read several articles that show that quality sleep can provide you with a significant performance boost when it comes to retaining new vocabulary and processing information within your brains language center.
