Top 7 Study Tips to Improve Concentration and Better Focus

When you’re constantly surrounded by technology and gadgets, it is only easier to get easily distracted.

Have you ever noticed this pattern that you Google and searched for something and one search led to the other and you finally ended up looking for something entirely different to what you were earlier looking for? And you would agree that something similar happens when you study. There are so many things going inside your head and in your life and surroundings that it becomes extremely difficult to focus on studies. But we’re here to your rescue, here are some effective strategies which will improve your concentration and help you make the most of your study hours. 

Get some beauty sleep

Sleep is essential not only to look fresh but to feel fresh too. Sleep should be one of your priorities if you’re looking to concentrate better and increase your learning capacity. Sleep deprivation affects your mood, focus and impairs your judgment and concentration. Therefore, get a good 7-8 hours of sleep every night and you’ll notice the difference in your concentration levels.

Say No To Caffeine

Having a nicely brewed cup of coffee sounds really tempting to keep yourself alert while studying, however, it’s not worth it. When you have to study for long hours, nothing beats water as it helps transmit nutrients to the brain that stimulates it to focus efficiently. Also, make sure to take it in sips rather than gulping it all down in one go.

Walk It Out

Physical exercise has benefits for both body and brain. Researches have found that taking a quick 15-20 minutes long walk before studying helps to improve concentration. Taking a walk will promote proper blood flow to the brain hence helping you in better focus and better retention.

Face The Music

Music does help in calming us down and focus better. Many students use it as a tool to get their minds on the right track while studying. So go ahead and create your own playlist of your preferred genre, however, research shows that classical music works better to help you focus while you study.

Shake It Off

When it seems like nothing is working out and you can’t seem to find your center, just breathe. Assess yourself, get up and do a few stretches. Find your sweet spot, talk nonsense with a kid, meditate, anything to help your brain relax before it’s ready to battle books again.

Find a peaceful study environment

Find a suitable study environment before settling down to study. Find a vacant room with soothing lights and fewer noise distractions.

Get yourself a study partner

It becomes quite boring after studying for long hours. It is important for you to get a break, not from your studies but from the strenuous moment you go through. Find yourself a study partner with whom you can share your study techniques and clarify your doubts. Also getting a focused partner will boost you and motivate your study level to match up to them.

Aim to score higher and perform better by using these powerful tips to improve concentration and enhance your memory power as you prepare for your exams.
