Everyone has a different and unique learning pattern. Maybe you lay on the floor when you read, like to have background noise when you study (music, TV, etc.), need total and complete silence to concentrate, or need to take a break every half hour or 15 minutes to keep optimum focus. There is not one “right” way to absorb information. You may be more visual, auditory, or kinesthetic in your learning style; and your unique style will inform what approach works best for you. Find the methods that enable you to absorb the most, and do it “your” way!
