They say meditation is good for everyone. It has already been a clichéd dictum about meditation. It is much important for anyone to get out of the hubbubs of daily life and go on a retreat for your mind’s sake. A crystal clear mind having had lots of rest is ideal for settling down to studies. And it is also important to cherish the silence that meditation can bring. Meditation teaches you to keep all your attention on your breath. While you sit silently, focusing on your breath, and try to calm the mind, that is meditation. Vivekananda had asked his disciples to let the mind wander off first. It is difficult to tame the mind without letting it wander off. The mind according to the Indian philosophy is like a monkey that has been intoxicated and has been bitten by a scorpion, on top of all that. If that is the state of the mind, it is indeed difficult for the mind to be in control, at the first go. Therefore, practicing to sit for meditation for five minutes to ten minutes and thereby enhancing the process to longer stretches of time through practice is the best way.
While you concentrate on your work hard or study even harder for your exams ahead, with all attention, you are surely into a state of meditation. Living with lots of stress and anxiety in life calls for a lot of calm and coolness inside and thus meditation is what brings the mindfulness back in us. They help regulating the emotions and it helps people develop the sense of self disciplining themselves and practicing one thing at a time.

You have to take individual information or micro cognition in small packs and mix them into holistic macro cognition, relational or mental movie. This is the link process of learning.
Thinking is all about how the brain develops an inference and thinking knows what is relevant and what all are not. While you think, you also need to hear and read and then search answers that satisfy you.
