During the final month of college is always the most stressful time of year. You never want to study because you keep thinking of how much you need to get done in a week. These 5 things help me become more focused on studying and getting my projects done on time.
There have been several studies that prove chocolate can help you focus when you study. Dark chocolate is the best kind to eat. The cocoa improves the blood flow going to your brain, making your memory much better.
Make a Plan
When there is a lot going on with school and personal stuff, you need to give time for everything. Making a plan will help you get things done on time. Give a scheduled amount of time each day to study for each class will help you divide up your time so you aren't focused on 1 thing for too long. Focusing on a single thing for a long period of time will make you lose focus easily because you aren't changing things up.
Find a Quiet Area
There are some people who can study with a lot of people around, but other people, like me, can't study around other people. I would get distracted when there is talking or movement going on around me. I would go to the silent floor of my school's library because people are not allowed to talk there. One place that might be the most distracting to study or do any work is in your bedroom. For me, I get too distracted by everything in my room so I get nothing done.
Block All Sites and Apps That Might Distract You
With today's modern day technology, we are always on the internet or social media. If you need to use your computer to do your homework or to study then block everything that you might use to get distracted. If you don't need the internet for anything, then turn off your Wi-Fi so you cannot go on it.
Don't Listen To Your Usual Music
If you're like me and cannot study in complete silence, then listen to some music. Just remember, do not listen to the music you normally listen to that would make you want to sing along to. I listen to classical or Latin music while I need to focus. Classical music doesn't have many words and it can be very relaxing to listen to while studying. Latin music can be upbeat, but I don't know what they are saying so I wouldn't be able to sing along to it.
