How to maximise focus while studying!

How to maximise focus while studying!

1. Minimize phone usage

The act of checking your phone serves as a major distraction in life. Enhance your concentration manifold by placing your phone away when studying or working. It’s common to mindlessly scroll through the phone, so restrict its use solely for calls. A helpful technique is to relocate your phone to another room while studying to avoid unnecessary distractions. On average, people check their phones 150 times a day, consuming a significant amount of time.

If you tend to spend extended periods on apps like YouTube or Facebook, set a daily time limit, like 15 minutes, after which they automatically deactivate. Designate focused periods where phone checks are off-limits. Start your day without reaching for your phone immediately, accomplishing substantial work before engaging with it.

2. Prioritize single-tasking

Avoid multitasking, as contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t enhance productivity. The brain expends considerable energy when shifting between tasks, reducing overall efficiency. Multitasking not only hampers productivity but also diminishes focus. “Ikigai,” a renowned book, highlights the Japanese approach of concentrating on one task at a time, emphasizing the effectiveness and efficiency achieved through this focused approach.

3. Opt for a serene environment

Choose a quiet setting for your work or studies, free from distractions like television or background chatter. If necessary, use earphones to block out noise and immerse yourself in a peaceful space to enhance focus on the task at hand. Consider playing focused music, such as “Focus” by Narrow Beats, available on YouTube, to create an environment conducive to concentration.

4. Embrace the Pomodoro Technique

Devote 25 minutes of concentrated effort to a single task, followed by a 5-minute break. You can customize this technique to suit your preferences. By implementing this approach, the brain can optimize its focus on a specific task, promoting enhanced productivity and efficiency.

5. Implement a structured schedule

Plan your study or work agenda for the following day in advance. By doing so, your brain is relieved from the need to constantly decide on tasks, enabling you to efficiently check off your daily checklist. Set specific time targets for each task, acknowledging that accurately estimating task durations requires practice. Over time, you’ll develop a better understanding of how much time each task demands, allowing you to set realistic and achievable daily goals.

6. Opt for hard copies when studying

Prolonged screen time can lead to fatigue as your eyes and mind experience strain from digital device radiations. To facilitate extended study sessions, consider the traditional approach of using hard copy books. Keep a notebook handy to jot down notes or important information as needed during your study sessions. This method helps reduce eye and mental fatigue associated with prolonged exposure to digital screens.
