8. Be prepared while you sit for studying
If you are sitting unplanned for studying this is for sure that you will not study for very long. If you will not sit with the necessary things like marker, pen, notes and your revision material and you get up every time you need any of the above things then you will not be able to concentrate properly on your studies. You should keep the necessary items you will require during studying on your study table. When you get up to fetch the things you forgot to bring there are many chances that you will get distracted on the way back to your study room and you may end up sitting in front of the television or gossiping with someone. Always have things ready that you may require while you sit for studying. Keep some snacks and water with you so that you do not have to get up every time you feel hungry or thirsty.
7. Take breaks in between
Studying continuously for many hours can be boring. And after a particular point of time your brain stops grabbing as much as it was when you started studying. If you keep on studying for long hours without taking a small break you will not be able to understand and learn things. Relaxing and taking a break in the middle is very much important. Taking breaks helps to reduce stress. Not only has it reduced stress but it also gives you time to memorize what you have studied. It also helps to make your mind fresh so that you can study further and remain focused. While taking breaks do something which will make your mind still working.
6. Make a timetable
You should always make a timetable of what you want to study and at what time you study. There are many subjects that you may not like and you think you will complete them later. But this is wrong. You should first choose the least favorites subjects when you want to study. if you keep the least favorite subject for last you will never study them. After sometime you start getting bore and you lose your interest in studies. If at this time you will study your least favorite’s subject it will be not of any good studying it as you will not get anything in your brain. Rather keep the subjects that interests you for the last as even if you are tired of studying you will teach them as these subjects interests you a lot.
5. Have positive thoughts
Thinking negative and wrong about studies will never help you concentrate on your studies. Rather it will distract you from studies. If you will already think that you can’t study or some particular subject is hard then you will be unable to focus on studies. In every aspect of life we are taught to be positive same goes with studies. When you start studying keep all the negative thoughts and ideas outside the room and say them good bye. You should learn how to turn over your negative things into positive ones. Don’t ever say that you hate to study. If you will say that you will not be able to concentrate properly on studying. Negativity has never helped anyone and can never help anyone. Always maintain a positive attitude about studies. Always say you love studying and you are good at it. Surely you will become good if you keep this attitude in your mind.
4. Work out
Working out and doing a little exercise every morning you wake up will help you to concentrate better. Doing some particular yoga asana help you to increase your concentration power. If a person works out daily he remains active and more focused for the rest of the day. When you work out for some particular time every day your mind gets energized and gives its full potential throughout the day. In the beginning you might find it difficult to work out but after sometime you will yourself see the difference that how working out has made you sharper. If you cannot work out all the days in the week you can do some laundry or some other physical activity in the morning. This can be beneficial for the brain too.
3. Do a single thing at one time
Doing multiple things at the same time will not help you to concentrate on your studies. It rather will have the opposite effect. You should do one thing at one point of tome. Though you will think that people who do many things at a time are more skilled but during studies if you do many things at a time it will split up your attention and you will not be able to concentrate properly on your studies. If you are the one which has focusing problem and still you want to do many things at a time then this will add up your problem and not solve it out. When you are studying study one subject at a time. And while studying only focus on studies and keep all the work aside.
2. Say goodbye to the distractions
The main problem to maintain your concentration arises due to different kinds of distractions. With such advancement in study your phone has become the biggest distraction in your studies.
