How often do you find yourself in the middle of work when your suddenly overcome with the desire to do something else, something non-work related, something has distracted you and grabbed your attention.

Mann suggests rather than giving into that desire right then and there, write it down. Create a distraction to-do list that contains all the things you want to do. This way, you don’t have to worry that you might forget about it later.

Step 2| Use the Power of Language

Here are some ways to implement it:

  • When you tell yourself “I don’t feel like studying” say out loud “so what?" which will snap you out of this limiting mindset.
  • Use the word “and” instead of “but” when facing your problems.

When you say “I have to study for my midterm, BUT I’m tired and I don’t feel like studying”, you’re limiting your potential options of action.

However, when you say “I have to study for my midterm AND I don’t feel like studying”, you have two separate phrases and the second one doesn’t negate the first.

How to STUDY When You DON'T FEEL LIKE IT!
Set the stage

First, you need to create the conditions—in your body and external environment—to successfully learn and retain information.

  • Get a good night’s sleep
  • Stick with an environment that works
  • Listening to calming music
  • Eliminate distractions
  • Snack on smart food : While coffe and sugary foods might give you a boost for a short period but if you want to increase your efficiency for long periods try eating healthy snacks like edamame, apples, or nuts
Focus without a burnout.

Break down tasks into 15-30-minute morsels. Don’t bite off more than you can swallow at any one time.
