I always wondered what causes the brain to shut down, feel so heavy/foggy when studying? Why do I, despite wanting and knowing I have to, end up feeling drained of all my energy and feel so drained the moment I stare into a problem I know, or trying to solve? Why do I yawn so loudly and eyes get so watery each time I do, when I sit down to study?
BRAIN WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!
Seriously, what causes that? Why hasn't there been a drug or remedy to fix this all too common plight? It's like you sit down to focus, and you become instantly tired out, bored beyond compare, as if all the life was being drained out of you by simply putting yourself in a position of learning?
Is the brain like a harddrive? Can it be damaged so easily by writing in new information? What can be done about being able to upgrade my mental hardware without reformatting my entire drive? I'm beginning to yawn and tear up so I'll stop here.
I have looked into it and i think it's becuase that reading a book doesn't have you actively engaged or that interested. Therefor you conciter the passage borring and your mind wanders, and rightfully so since you know little of what is really relavent, and its hidden in a fog of words. The way to fix this is to fix a way to make it intresting. As of asking questions about anything related of what you're trying to find out from the passage. Or ponies could help.
When i do work i usaly turn on music and try to head on from there snince if my mind wanders it goes to the music most of the time, where it can go back like a sort of curcit, or at least better then normal for me. HOestly it deprends per subject and per person. Like math. It seems so compicated and teachers explanations are terrably longwinded and dull, so seeing simple step by step things can help more.
Basicly, some things are easier done then said, or read.
