Section 4

How many of you know people who hate studying, but love doing crosswords or playing computer games that challenge their minds and their reflexes? Lots of you, I’m sure. Well, one objective is to learn to enjoy studying in the same way, we enjoy those crosswords and computer games. Okay, we’ll come back to that later. Now, I want to discuss a few basics. One, regular exercise. Countless studies show that regular physical exercise, say, 40 minutes or so, five days a week of jogging, fast walking, weight training,

tennis, whatever you enjoy, puts you in a more positive frame of mind and also increases creativity and memory for hours after the exercise. Other important things are to eat good healthy food, get enough sleep and try not to spend too much time and money in the student bar. There’s nothing worse than trying to learn something or solve a problem than when you have a hangover. So, as the Romans used to say men Sana in corpore Sano, a healthy mind in a healthy body. Right. Now we’re all going to keep fit and healthy. What about the studying? First, you must work out the times that you will use for study. When I say study, I mean all the school work. Writing essays, reading etc that you do out of class. Be realistic, don’t plan to spend 60 hours a week on it. It’s too much for most of us. Set aside one or two blocks of time each of say, two or two and a half hours a day, that are your study time. 

As I say be realistic. Don’t set yourself such an ambitious goal that you will never stick to it. And it’s also a good idea to leave one day a week, Sunday, perhaps, completely free so you can relax and occasionally do some schoolwork at those times when it builds up a bit. That’s time, settled. Now for place. We are creatures of habit. We do things better when we do them in places that we associate with the particular activity, in this case studying. So it’s best to try and set aside a quiet place. Perhaps your bedroom, a study if you have one which is where you study. When the weather is nice, it could be our doors. Nothing is nicer than reading and thinking about that novel, you have to read for English literature 101 on a quiet grassy bank by a stream on a sunny day. 

And we mustn’t forget the library. Most of us find that studying surrounded by the learning of centuries is inspiring as though studying is the only proper thing to do in a library. Okay, time, place, what next? It is, questions. Before you set out to read something, always ask yourself,

Transcript: 

Assistant 2: OK, just let me draw the road layout… Right. OK? 

Elizabeth: When you leave New Town there’s a sharp bend in the road and then there’s a railway bridge. 

Assistant 2: OK. 

Elizabeth: And then about half a kilometre further on there’s a crossroads with traffic lights. And I was just in between the two when it happened. I wasn’t going very fast, in fact, I definitely… 

Assistant 2: So you’d already gone over the bridge? 

Elizabeth: Yes. And I’d passed the park – that’s on the right-hand side. And I was just

approaching the petrol station… 

Assistant 2: Where’s that then? 

Elizabeth: It’s a bit further along, on the opposite side. 

Assistant 2: So, on your near side then? 

Elizabeth: Yes. As I was approaching it I saw a blue van coming towards me. The driver had stopped in the middle of the road. 

Assistant 2: Was he indicating? 

Elizabeth: Yes. He was waiting to turn into the petrol station. But then at the last minute, he decided to turn right in front of me. He must have thought he had enough time, but I had to swerve to avoid him. And I came off the road and landed in a ditch on the opposite side. Assistant 2: Mmm. I don’t suppose he stopped, did he?

Transcript: SECTION 1 

WOMAN: GooThere’s the Dean End Health Centre about ten minutes’ walk away and there’s another practice in South Hay. That’s about five minutes away going towards the town centre.We’re registered at the Dean End one, but they’re both OK. There are about six doctors in our practice and four in the other. So ours is quite big in comparison. And the building and everything’s a bit more modern. South Hay is a bit old-fashioned but the doctors are OK. Their only problem is that they don’t have a proper appointment system. Sometimes you have to wait for ages there to see someone. Anyway, you go to the receptionist in whichever health centre and ask her to register you with a doctor there. You have to fill in a form, but it doesn’t take long. Ours is called Dr Jones and we’ve been going to him for years – ever since we moved here fifteen years ago. I wouldn’t say he’s brilliant but I suppose he’s alright really. We’re used to him now. They say he’s very good with elderly people, but he does tend to get a bit impatient with children. Listen, the one who’s supposed to be really good with small children is Dr Shaw. I’ve heard lots of people say that. She’s young and she’s got small children of her own. So you could try registering with her. And if her list is full, I heard somebody say the other day that there’s a really nice young doctor at South Hay, Dr Williams. He holds special clinics for people with back trouble. But that’s not really your problem, is it?
