Train your Brain

The hard part of enjoying in the academic institutions is that the fun element itself keeps playing in the students' mind and it becomes difficult for them to take up a serious study session. Here are few ways to shut the distraction monster:

  • Before you start studying, have a time chart plan and condition your brain to act accordingly.
  • There are many brain exercises such as yoga and meditation. Initially it can appear tricky and might not interest you. But after few sessions, the technique will start working on you eventually.
  • Command with your inner voice. How many of you have realised the power of your biological clock, when you tell yourself wake up at 5 am and you get awakened accurately at 5? If not, try now. The same way when you tell yourself what exactly you want to do, your subconscience will execute it dexterously.

Time is Precious

The time you choose to study also matters when it comes to focusing. It should neither be at a time when you usually eat, nor immediately after eating because it might tend to make you sleepy. Choose a time when your body is happy to work united with your mind. Early morning, evening and late night are the best suited hours for concentrating.

Importantly, choose what time is much convenient for you than being confused about early rising or late night studying. Do not change your cycle in the last minute, lest you get stuck amidst both and both does not work.

Read Aloud

When you want to forcibly shut the distractions out of you, the best way to do it is to study aloud. This act will make you fully aware of what you do and intimate yourself immediately when you go off track. You can also make lot of lilts to sound good and happy to study. In fact, even goals announced aloud has more power than those dreams burried deep within.

It is rightly said to strike the iron while it is hot. So, aim precisely at the right timing and in the right method to study and make concentration your strength but not weakness.
