Unfortunately, we weren’t taught how to learn at school. We were given homework, assignments, tests, and the like, without ever using our brain to think about what the best approach is to tackle.

Being in lockdown has given most of us some valuable time. While it’s great to have time for ourselves, learning can still feel like a challenge, despite having more capacity to do so.
It’s extremely easy to eat more, watch tv, procrastinate, play games, and the like, because our brain has a natural tendency to go towards those activities as there’s less effort involved in mental encoding. Add the rush of endorphins from binge-watching your favourite Netflix shows, and learning can seem like a very distant chore. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
