They say that your twenties are the best time of your life. But that’s not true when you’re stuck at uni. Okay there are tonnes of fun things about university, like the friendships you make and the parties. The studying however is very rough. They teach you coping methods like taking breaks and doing exercise, but I’ve found the best method for me, and it’s not what you think…
I’ve found than putting some fresh flowers in my room is the best way to get through hours and hours of studying. Particularly on the night before an exam, buying bunches of tulips and putting them in vases all around your room will seriously boost your end result. Seriously, before the flowers I was averaging about 70% for all my test, and after the flowers I’m getting upwards of 85%. That’s a low B to a high A. Even my tutors and lecturers notices the difference and asked me what my secret was. I told them it was good planning and flowers.
Makes sense why they boost your study power so much. Flowers have an amazing effect on your psychology. Their bright colours and attractive scents will trigger the release of endorphins in your brain and help you to focus. They even have air freshening qualities, peace lilies have been tested to this effect. My brother has always had dismal study scores. I smuggled some flowers under his bed (he’s such an ignoramus he couldn’t even smell them) and he surprised everyone by actually passing his maths exam!
I’m going to start experimenting with using different types of flowers. Like what would be the difference between potting tulips and having hyacinth bulbs in your room? Which is the best colour for studying? I’m thinking that after some months of experimentation, I’m going to be getting even more out of my flower studies.
