Concentration in the study: 8 tips to increase it

Who I am
Louise Hay

La concentration in the study It consists in ability to eliminate all sources of distraction and to remain - at the same time - focused on the material - books, handouts or notes - at your fingertips. If after finishing a reading you suddenly realize that you have not understood anything you have just read, or if when you follow the lessons you have obvious difficulty paying attention to what is explained by the teacher, then you have gods concentration problems.

When every physical or mental resource is concentrated, one's power to solve a problem multiplies tremendously.

Concentration in the study: 8 ways to improve it

Below you will find a series of practical advice to counter the lack of concentration in the study and thus succeed in focus better.

  1. Establish and follow a study routine. To be able to stay focused while studying you have to rely on a effective study method that - day after day - becomes a practice. Improvising with studying is one of the main reasons why you get distracted easily and get poor results.
  2. Study in a peaceful and quiet environment. You clearly cannot find study concentration if you study in a noisy environment. Avoid rooms where there is a constant "bustle" and find a space "your".
  3. When you take a break from studying, you do something different than what you have done up to that point. For example, you could wander around a bit or change rooms so that you completely unplug and wander with your mind.
  4. Stay away from your smartphone. My advice in this regard is very drastic: when you study, turn off your smartphone or - if you really don't want to turn it off - at least turn off all notifications. In short, do not let yourself be distracted by social networks!
  5. Avoid daydreaming by wandering too much with your imagination. In order to achieve perfect concentration it is necessary to silence these inner voices. Do not mull over the study material thinking about how it should be approached. Avoid wasting time thinking about how many pages you need to study before finishing your daily study session. Study planning is a preliminary activity that must be done before even starting to study as I explain in detail in the ebook The University Student Memorandum.
  6. Before each lesson, prepare and delve into the topics. Reread the notes taken during the previous lesson and read the didactic material pertaining to the current lesson in order to be able to anticipate the main topics that the professor will address.
  7. Make an effort to show interest in the lesson and what the teacher is explaining. Avoid overly relaxed postures that will only distract you. Keep an alert and alert expression and self-motivated. The lesson you are taking or the exam you are studying should not be imagined as something boring; rather think about why you went to college. In short, let yourself be motivated by the ambitions and objectives you intend to achieve, mentally trying to go beyond the boring quarrels related to the single exam or the single lesson.
  8. In the classroom, during lessons, do not sit next to colleagues who are easily distracted and who do not follow closely. Do not let yourself be distracted by negative people who could make your effort to find concentration in study in vain; rather pay close attention to the teacher and take notes.
