Do you get easily distracted while learning? Like the moment you open a book and start with the first chapter, your mind wanders about the football match coming up next week or a film you have to catch up the next day.
Well, this is just not your story. Every student faces this issue.
Your brain is filled with thousands of memories and information regarding day to day life which you can’t avoid and comes back and give you a nudge at the perfect time- while studying. But this state of mind can be conquered with the following tips.
Turn off your Cell phone
This is by far the most important thing of this century- Switch off your phone! The major cause of distraction is undoubtedly cell phone. If you keep them on, you will be tempted to check for messages or Facebook updates every 2 minutes disturbing your studies. Turn off your phone atleast for an hour and start studying. You will see the difference right then!
Clean up your work space
Your work space location should be arranged somewhere it avoids any kind of distractions. Choose your location wisely, whether it be your library, bedroom, balcony make sure this place offers peace and silence. Do not close the door, but you may keep a “do not disturb” sign board while you study. Keep all you educational related materials by your side. Pen, Pencils, geometry box, papers, rough book, text books and note books and everything.
Encourage your parents to switch off TV while you are learning. When you hear the sound of some exiting program, you may get tempted to have a peek. It’s better to have that proper environment of silence whenever you learn.
Seek help of an online tutor
Why is it necessary that you should study all alone? Put your trust on an online tutor and start learning through one-to-one interaction. This will help you to be focussed and determined to study.
