The importance of rest and relaxation
The benefits of slowing down
If you have a bunch of pads or notebooks filled with meeting notes that you never consult, your note-taking isn't providing the most value over time.
Re-reading notes does make a difference. Because the chief value of note-taking is storing information so it could be consulted later.
There's little research into the benefits of digital note-taking over handwritten notes.
But the findings underline that typing out notes improves later recall, while copy and pasting text into notes is actually detrimental to learning because it encourages wordiness.
The most rigorously structured notes, those with hierarchal ordering and numbered subsections, are of the highest quality and accuracy.
But although these notes are significantly more precise than freestyle note-taking, there is little difference in the ability of the note-taker to recall the material.
It brings visual structure to notes, usually involving writing one word in the center and drawing offshoots from it with related ideas and phrases.
Mind-mapping is significantly more effective than just writing out notes and helps with presenting the information back with more clarity and coherence than traditional notes.
We remember things that stand out.
Underlining something makes it stand out against other words and that makes recalling that word easier.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
