3 Ways How To Keep Your Focus While Studying [video]

excuse me, in your webinar u? said to focus on one thing at a time. Does that mean i should not listen to music while doing my work?

@aaronloh321 Good question aaronloh321. Music is great to get yourself pumped up especially if you’re not in the mood :-)

Once you get your momentum going, I do suggest turning the music off. Why? Because once you get yourself? going, it’s easier to keep going until you finish or are distracted. Your song play list can easily become a distraction.

Single-tasking keeps this from happening (you finish much faster and get more out of studying). Check it out and let me know if it works for? you.

    Great tips! This video helped me a lot. I use to slouch or study on my bed and that makes me sleepy. I can’t concentrate that way. So I tried steps and it worked! Thanks a lot.

    You have a very interesting thought process when it comes to figuring out how to get people to study better! As a college student myself (and maybe more importantly, someone who does try to study and do well) I know it can be really difficult to get into the zone of studying, especially after a long day spent in classes. You pointed out a lot about posture, and I think there is definitely something to that. It’s hard to balance being tired and forcing yourself to study, when frankly sleep or something else is more desirable. Something that has always helped me is going outside of my apartment and taking a quick run to get some blood and oxygen flowing. It definitely helps with concentration as the day goes on.

    Those exercises kept me awake all night. Thanks for the tips! The steps made my brain awake to study. I will surely revisit this site.

    At times when I try to study, there is a certain uneasiness in my head, a mild level of discomfort or a slight pain as i would rather call it. Also, i am interested to know does lack of daily physical exercise (i would be honest enough and say that i don’t do any physical ‘exercise’ per se at all) impact your study skills and intellect power? Thanks for this website!

      Hi Rahul,

      There can be many reasons for the unease and discomfort. I’m obviously not a medical doctor so the following isn’t medical advice… Sometimes drawing out what you are studying in pictures can put you more at ease.

      Check out Brain Rules by John Medina – Rule #1: Exercise boosts brain power. According to his findings: exercise increases brain power and aerobic exercise twice a week reduces the risk of general dementia by 50% and Alzheimer’s by 60%. So there’s more proof doing physical exercise will keep you smart :-)

    How we can turn up for study when we are listening to music.It sometimes become impossible as when I sit to study my mind take me to the music I have to listen it I am unable to control my mind and at that when I am listening to music I am unable to focus towards study this is why happens I wants to know it.

    • Mr. A says:

      Good question Hemant. Music is great to get yourself pumped up especially if you’re not in the mood :-)

      Once you get your momentum going, I do suggest turning the music off. Why? Because once you get yourself going, it’s easier to keep going until you finish or are distracted. Your song play list can easily become a distraction – as you have shared from your experience.

      Single-tasking keeps this from happening (you finish much faster and get more out of studying).

    I have a question on your Youtube video titled Study Tips for Exams: Improving Study Skills you said to organize your information into two piles for things not going to be on the exam and for things that are. How am I suppose to know what things are on the test? Or did you mean organize it into chapter that have been covered in class and now need to be tested on and chapters that have already been tested on. Can you please explain a little more

    • Mr. A says:

      Happy to explain a little more: If you’re not sure what’s on the test – Ask. It’s sometimes amazing how much teachers or professors will let you know. What you mentioned about organizing what’s been tested and what hasn’t been tested can help. Really depends if the class cycles back to past test questions – usually classes do not do this until the final exam – you would know if your class does after taking the second test (or Asking). More about finding out what’s on the exam in my program “Study Skills Reloaded”
