Focusing Problem While Studying

Let’s say you’re ready to study and sit down to start studying. If you want to do something else, do something different after you start studying, it means you can not focus. The problem of not focusing can also cause problems in the exams. In this article, there are recommendations on how to overcome the problem of not focusing.

There may be many different reasons for the focusing problem.

In general, there are many different elements in our lives that can distract us. From the moment we wake up in the morning, we communicate with our family, friends and teachers. Other elements such as social media and television also affect our lives. Changes in emotions, stress, fatigue also change our concentration very easily. When you want to study, you have to leave all of this behind, but this may not be easy.

First you need to know yourself.

Everyone’s working style is different. What’s important here is that you should discover yourself. Are you studying more comfortably during the day or nights?  Do you feel more comfortable when you implement a program? 🗒 🗒 Do you work well when you’re full? 🗒 These may seem small details, but it’s important that you create the optimum conditions for yourself. Forcing yourself to work under conditions that you are unhappy, uncomfortable, you wear out and you can’t focus. Do you study better at home or in the library? What kind of studying schedule do you like? Can you study well when you’re full? These may look like small details, but it’s important that you create the optimum conditions for yourself. Forcing yourself to work under conditions that you are unhappy, uncomfortable causes not focusing.

You need to organize where you study.

What distracts us while working? The phone, as you might have guessed. If you need to look at the phone immediately and want to control your social media accounts all the time, this makes it very difficult for you to focus on your study. You take advantage of the phone and the computer. However, you need to restrict the remaining uses. It is also important how the study table and room look. Extracurricular materials such as magazines and posters should not be in the where you study. In addition, if you are going to study Math, for example, there should be no questions or notes of other lessons at the table so that you do not distract.

Lack of attention

In some exams, you have misunderstood the question because you misread the question. In fact, stress and distraction in exams are a continuation of the problem of not focusing on daily life. As a first step, you have to get used to the exam period and to stay at the desk for that time, and you can do this by practicing plenty of exams. You shouldn’t say  “This question is very easy, I’ll do it anyway.” When you are solving a question, leaving behind the previous questions and starting to do the operations by writing calmly will also prevent you from making mistakes. Of course, there will be questions you cannot do, you will learn a lot from the questions you cannot do.
