Meditation increases memory and concentration power. One of the reputed psychiatrists said that memory pills do not work, and the students should make a revision schedule to memorize a topic.
Dr Samir Parikh, director, Department of Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences at Fortis Healthcare, advised the students that
The students make a schedule or a regular study plan and stick to it. The study table must be organized and uncluttered, the same applies to a clean bed for a relaxed sleep. While studying, take breaks every 45 minutes to realign your thoughts and absorb what the students studied. It's a good idea to take a walk, talk to a friend, play a game or listen to music.
