Did you know that humans have a shorter attention span than goldfish? Goldfish have an attention span of 9 seconds; humans clock in at 8.7 seconds. (Don’t believe me? Check out TIME’s article on the topic.)
Here’s a couple of other alarming statistics:
Did you know that the average person checks their email inbox 30 times per hour?! Not day–HOUR.
Also, the average person picks up their cell phone 1,500 times per week! That’s 3 hours and 16 minutes per day.
That’s not great news, Humans, but if we know this information about ourselves, it can be a springboard to improve our study habits, especially if you’re studying for the PE exam.
In my latest Quick Tips video, I discuss:
- how our short attention spans affect our study habits
- what you can do to focus more when you study for the PE
- how to get rid of distractions.
If you’re interested in having an attention span greater than a goldfish’s, then I think you’ll wanna take a brief second to watch (although it’s more than 8.7 seconds, just saying. 😆) My goal is to help you any way that I can as you prepare to study for the PE exam.
