What Makes Studying Habits Effective?

Finding Your Learning Style

Not everybody learns the same way. You have to be able to adjust your studying habits around the strategies you use to learn in the classroom, but and reinforce that information quickly. The three primary learning strategies are:

  • Visual Learning 
  • Auditory Learning
  • Group Learning

On top of these three primary areas of study, you can use different strategies to either work together or give yourself opportunities for success on your own. That can be using flash cards to get the visuals down, memorizing and repeating, or 

Ease of Repetition

If you can't repeat it, you're not going to be able to keep the habit going. That makes your testing scores far less consistent, as well as hurts your productivity when you're trying to work on in-class assignments. You don't want to do something erratic or inconsistent when it comes to learning because it'll make recalling information more difficult and cues that you remember a lot foggier.

The best route to increase your performance as a student overall is to find habits you can replicate easily. For example, if you have dinner after practice with your sports team and then have a protein shake/ some kind of recovery supplement, it's easy to tie in studying habits with your nutritional habits. You have your shake while reading notes from class that day, or even just run through some questions with a family member. 

Daily Nutrition

Nutrition will keep your stamina high when it comes to studying. You need to be able to stay consistent and not load up on sugar or caffeine too hard. Otherwise, you'll crash and burn through the day and not get the most out of all the effort you put into getting through the semester's material.

Even if finals season is a short burst to finish the term, you still have to incorporate your habits for nutrition as early as possible. Changing them last minute isn't going to make a major impact. However, it's still worth trying if you're coming down to the wire.


Sleeping well is the only way you're going to be able to keep your eyes open for longer study sessions, as well as recall those hard-to-reach answers on tests. Eight hours is the target every night, but the really essential element is that the sleep is "restful," since many people can sleep even ten hours and still feel underslept.  

People pursue feeling rested in different ways, and while consistency is the best route, there are a ton of other methods. Meditation, yoga, motivational music, and even nootropics.

At Troomy, we've honed in on nootropics as a sleep support supplement that can also be used for boosting energy, elevating focus, anxiety support, and much more.

Using Functional Mushrooms for Better Studying

Functional mushrooms are common superfoods today that can boost brain health and create completely new avenues for your health and wellness development. As a support for daily function, the 14,000 species of mushrooms known today offer only a handful of mushrooms that are recognized for their nutrient-rich properties. While most mushrooms have at least a solid foundation, those particularly strong functional mushrooms are perfect study boosters.

How Can I Get These Mushrooms in My Diet?

  • Raw Mushrooms - Fun for cooking with a ton of customizability on your end. Takes a bit more prep work but can be worth it depending on how much time you have dedicated to your diet on a given day.
  • Mushroom Powder Supplements - Powder supplements are perfect for smoothies and juicing. You can just take a scoop and go. Although the flavor isn't always ideal, and it can be tough to find the right blend for your needs.
  • Mushroom Gummies - The perfect combination of raw mushrooms blended into a flavorful, nutrient-rich blend of fruity goodness. Grab a handful of mushroom support with one bite, zero prep time, and delicious flavor at a wallet-friendly cost.

Overall, we highly recommend considering functional mushrooms in your diet in general, with gummies leading the way for the easiest adds to your diet. Then it just comes down to finding gummies with the right mushrooms for you.

Best Functional Mushroom for Studying

Lion's Mane

Lion's Mane is fantastic for functional boosting in brain health that can make studying much easier. The only thing is that this one is tough to find on the average shelf in your local grocery store. Some organic shops might have them, or maybe a shop in a farmer's market, but otherwise, you're going to rarely find this one. Especially fresh. Although, perfectly picked Lion's Mane is an outstanding supplement when you can find it.


Cordyceps are stronger as support for energy rather than just boosting brain health. Helping you stay on track, keep your studying efficient, and allow the whole process to pass much more easily.


Reishi is more of a lifestyle mushroom to help you with the habits that surround studying. Take sleep for example. Reishi is an excellent support piece to keep your sleep habits consistent which can directly impact how you study. For example, if you're up all night studying and have terrible sleep habits all week, you're going to find yourself drawing a blank during finals a whole lot more often. Especially in an oral exam. You need to be on your a-game cognitively.
