Stop digital burnout in its tracks

Let’s face it – in 2017, communications technology, such as computers, smartphones and tablets are a necessary part of university student life. It’s our digital footprints on online learning management systems, social media, email and other digital communications platforms that allow us to live two lives: one in person and one online. But, we need to remember that our devices were designed to make studying easier and to enrich our university experience – not to take over our lives. So if you feel exhausted by your emails and stressed out by your Snapchat, it might be time to take a look at your digital consumption habits to make sure you’re not heading for tech burnout.

Mix it up While some people say find a quiet space and stick to it, cognitive scientists say that mixing the space you study in helps with memory and retaining information more effectively. Memory is coloured by our senses – sights, smells, sounds and changes in your study space  can  increase the likelihood of remembering what you’ve learned. So next time you’re at the library, choose a different spot, a different desk, a different outlook.  Or find a quiet spot at your local café, or another room in your house. It can make all the difference.
