Looking for foolproof study tips? Look no further than the family dog. When it comes to studying, as with so many things in life, we can look to our dogs for inspiration. They know how to make the most of every moment, after all. Read on to learn how to make the most of your study time…like a dog. If these tips don’t work, at least you can get some furry snuggles.
Life is easier if you keep that tail wagging, and studying is easier and more effective if you have a positive mindset going in.
Make yourself comfortable
Set up your study zone with a comfortable seat and minimal distractions to keep you focused and on-task.
Keep plenty of treats on hand
Tasty, healthful snacks will fuel your brain as you hit the books.
Don’t eat your homework
The snacks should help with that.
Don’t overdo the caffeine

Caffeine may not be toxic to humans the way it is to dogs, but too much may give you a case of the zoomies!
Unplug. Seriously. You can do it.
You won’t catch your dog scrolling endlessly through a Twitter feed. Take a hint from Fido and put down the device!
Nap breaks are always a good idea
Sometimes, your brain needs rest. If you’ve been hitting the books for hours, maybe it’s time to curl up (preferably with a dog) and take a nap.
Take it outdoors
Vitamin D can be an excellent study aide, so grab a blanket and take those books al fresco.
Don’t forget your glasses
Eye strain isn’t cool, and you look good in those specs.
Get a study buddy
Studying all by yourself can be lonely, and having a friend nearby means you have someone to talk to, commiserate with, and trade off flashcard duties. And hey, your study buddy doesn’t have to be human.
There’s always time for a walk
Whether you’re taking a study break or celebrating the day after a test, a walk is a great way to rest your brain and up your endorphins. Chances are, your best study buddy will leap at the chance to join you.
