How to Concentrate on Studies For Exams
We all wonder how to concentrate on studies for exams and we try many different things to do so but in this article, I am going to include only those ways and exercises which are proven and are endorsed by the toppers of the board as well as toppers of entrance exams like JEE, GATE, and NEET. I have taken reference from the book Deep Work to explain my methods and ways, which have been written by Cal Newport who himself is an associate professor of computer science at Georgetown University.
Increase duration of work slowly
There is a very famous quote of Sir Richard Cech that “The best way of doing many things is to do one thing at a time” which tells us about the importance of single-tasking.
Here remember one thing that breaking off from all of these things directly will also cause problems for you so just try to reduce these distractions as having zero distractions is very tough and it will be hard to do so continuously if you try that.
This can be achieved only by practice as it is very tough to stay in the present because most of us have this habit of overthinking about things that are not in our control. You can do meditation to improve focus because it has been proven that meditation is very effective for improving focus.
Increase Duration of work
Usually, when we ask ourselves how to concentrate on studies we use to make so many rules and we try to do each and everything correctly from the very first day, this is the reason we usually fail to continue any habit we had initiated to avoid that we should focus on doing things then slowly and gradually we can improve ourself in that thing.
- Use Will Power
Avoid Social Media
Focus on Deep working
I. Use Will Power
II. Enjoy Boredom
Sitting at a place and studying for long hours is a boring process but the thing to remember is that we could achieve our goal only when we will be able to enjoy this boredom. This is a very rigorous process as developing the habit of doing boring things is not going to happen overnight and you are needed to be lenient towards yourself so try to find ways to enjoy doing stuff that you feel is boring but necessary.
III. Avoid Social Media
You should avoid using social media just before and after study time so try to avoid it before half hour of study time and again for the next half hour after study time.
IV. Focus on Deep working
