HOW TO DEVELOP
BETTER CONCENTRATION WHILE STUDYING
Think of concentration improvement as a three-step process:
1) Learn the causes of poor concentration and decide which apply to you;
2) Understand what you can do to control these factors; and
3) Make your control habitual.
Learn the Causes/Control the Causes
distractions: TV, chairs that are too comfortable, snacks, other people,
Cause: Noise: Music with words,
Physical distractions: hunger, drowsiness.
Boredom, dislike, disinterest
Cause: Anxiety about
Intimidating study tasks
Cause: Personal worries
Make Control Habitual
Even if you lapse into old habits of distraction and daydreaming, keep insisting that you concentrate using these controls until you can routinely concentrate well on your studies for fifty minutes of every hour.
