4. Work with your energy levels

It’s usual to drag your feet and postpone the unpleasant and most tough tasks. When you start your study, your energy level will be at the higher level.

It’s best to start with harder stuff and hold over the easiest things instead. This will keep you focused when you need it most.

5. Give your brain ‘free-mode’

The human mind is mixed-up with thoughts all the time. Some therapists suggest that we should let our mind wander freely for about 15 minutes daily.

Allow it to think anything and everything with a condition to stop their minds immediately when time gets over. It will help you enhance your focus after practicing a few times.

1. Finding an absorbed mindset

Whenever you find you are losing your focus, stop and speak yourself to be in the present. You should have to do this a few times but you’ll ultimately tell again yourself that you want to concentrate on the study at hand. If you look after this continuously, you will find that you slowly but surely spend a smaller amount of time being abstracted.

2. Take a Break

Life is very busy, so you can easily find yourself distracted from studying by thinking about something else.

You should take a break of 5 to 10 minutes thinking about what distracts you during the study, but then tell yourself that it is time to concentrate on the study nothing else.
