Methods to Improve Concentration While Studying
1. Find a suitable place to study
Everybody needs a suitable place to study. It is not always practical to find a completely quite or having fresh air place for your study. Importance should be given to your comfort. You must be comfortable with your surroundings while studying. You could create a better environment for studying rather than find a better place.
Avoid places where people will disturb you, having distracting sounds of TV, phone, etc. That is to avoid external disturbing chances while you study.
If you don’t know how to select a suitable place or surrounding, you could experiment with different situations and see how it affects your concentration and choose the correct one. Most students will have a study table and chair these days, if you have one choose where to put it so that to improve your concentration.
2. Keep the required materials near to you in reachable distance
If you are studying a subject, you must keep all the required study materials nearby you in reachable distance to avoid disturbance of searching the material in between your study. The study materials includes notes, textbooks, papers, pen and pencil, mathematical instruments, etc.
This doesn’t mean that you should keep all the materials in front of you. You should keep in correct place neatly so that you can take it when it is required. You must keep your surroundings neat and tidy also.
3. Switch off electronics
You must switch off unnecessary electronic devices like cell phones, music devices, TV, computers, laptops etc. Sometimes some of the above mention electronic devices become necessary for the study, use it only and when it is required (like laptop or computer while online study courses), otherwise switch off it. The electronics devices are mainly a source of distraction.
4. Identify correct time for your study
You should identify a correct time for your study. Don’t follow others in this matter. Some could wake up early in the morning and concentrate on studies. But some others could concentrate more in late night. It all depends on your life style, comfort and daily routine. The idea is to identify best available time to concentrate on studies. Your body should be more energetic and fresh on this time.
5. Good attitude or intention to study
You may experience that the speed and concentration you have a day before an exam is more than other days. This is purely because of your intention or attitude. You need to develop an intention to study, which will improve your concentration. Some times this intention makes you to avoid many disturbances and possible distractions of concentration.
6. Stay fit
Being fit improves your concentration. Regular exercise and good sound sleep are essential for staying fit. A practice of mental exercise, breathing exercises and meditation will also improve your concentration.
