In today’s digital society, there are so many distracting activities out there. Technology is highly blamed for this and a number of reasons; however, it is not the responsibility of technology on its own. Students often quiz themselves by asking why they lack concentration when doing homework. Long before even the period of electronic gadgets. And, perhaps, if we can recognize causes that make students distracted, we can propose solutions for them.
- Don’t attempt to tackle homework right after school. Eat some tasty lunch and get some rest. If you are Hungry and dizzy after class, you’re not going to be able to focus, and it’s just because you’re tired. Consider this part of your homework routine. Then changing clothing to more casual and pleasant, snacking and sleeping, and only then settling down to focus on assignments.
- Get rid of the stuff that disrupts your concentration before you bravely tackle math and history tasks. For example, do not attempt to get yourself glued to the TV as a form of relaxation, because you might just end up watching TV the whole night. Games have the same propensity to distract you. Meals, before you do your schoolwork, and don’t have to be too big, because you’re going to feel like sleeping instead of getting to the homework at hand.
- Set time you are explicitly dedicated to research to let others know about everything. Working in a relaxed and private environment is an excellent chance to focus on assignments. If you refuse to give in to distractions, you will find out you are focused on your homework. Ask your friends not to bother you throughout this time, and ask your parents to leave you alone. However, make sure you genuinely use this time to study.
- Set up a dedicated, quiet place for your studies. Preferably, you could negotiate that you will take up some shared space for a few hours of research so that you have it all to yourself. A comfortable position is also a must when it comes to working on assignments. If the important things like pens, notebooks, and textbooks are strategically placed, you should have enough light and air. And you’ll pay attention to the work to be done rather than just questioning where the needed book is. Ensure that you stay away from devices that could distract you. Use a notepad to work, not to get on social media.
- Create a study plan that will help you ‘eat the frog.’ This bit of wisdom works with any task, whether it is a study or a business. When the assignment seemed so enormous and also too complex to deal with, dissect everything into smaller bits and tackle it one at a time. In the beginning, you can do the most challenging part and finish with more straightforward items. Or you could start by doing research, writing notes, making an outline, and then move to the quality of the writing that terrifies you the most. Only create a schedule with small steps and work on them, one by one.
