well, I hope this helps...but, now that I am retired, my memory is getting worse, and that's because I am not using it like I did in school, sooo that being sad, think of it as keeping your mind from getting alzheimers some day, the saying "don't use it or you will lose is" is true..... studying...
Best answer: well, I hope this helps...but, now that I am retired, my memory is getting worse, and that's because I am not using it like I did in school, sooo that being sad, think of it as keeping your mind from getting alzheimers some day, the saying "don't use it or you will lose is" is true..... studying makes you smarter, you don't want to go through life being co dependant on someone doing your thinking for you..... my mom has spent her entire life, making me do her 'thinking' for her, I didn't notice until now..... she is a very lazy person and makes all kinds of illnesses up to get out of cleaning her house.....laundry..etc… my son told me once she was being co dependent on me
and this in return keeps her at a baby stage . helpless to do anything on her own, and if I died first she wouldn't know what to do..the woman didn't even know how to grocery shop...said my dad always did that, well he died and she had to do it, but didn't want to and finally played me to get it...she was sick that day, or dizzy...etc....she is 90 now and never ever got dependent, I refuse to let myself be that way. its a form of sorriness, I have wore my self out trying to do things she was capable of doing, I just wished I had refused a lot of them so she would stop being that way. …….. it shows maturity when you do things without others doing it for you.
don't let that happen to you, it sounds like you are LOOKING at it wrong...and the mind is strong, we can convince ourselves of a lot.
I have fun ways of learning how to make good grades, I use to substitute teach and it works....such as read a sentence ( say in science...history etc...) then write a test question out of that sentence that you think would be on a test.....do this through the whole chapter....you will make a really good grade on the test and this way you don't have to re read … try fun things in studying, yes its boring...tiring...but you want to re program your thinking, look at it in a positive way,...…..keep saying, you refuse to have a lazy mind. its really all in the thinking.....I tell you why I know....I use to sit with the after school kids....and they complained they had homework...well, I didn't like school either when I was a kid..but I absolutely loved homework....lolo…...well, I told the kids that, and then when they would come in..they would say , "I have homework!"...I was like "Yeah I love homework..let me help.....well, I did this for a week and really had fun helping them....well, then I heard them one day, say "Hey I got homework today" and he said it like he was happy. all that was re thinking...all that was changing the way we see it. learning is something I love to do even now that I am retired, I sure don't want dementia or Alzheimer's… :)
so...next time you need help , we will be here to help, just post it...you will be proud of yourself
