How I stay productive

We’re all guilty of losing concentration while we are supposed to be working. Picking up your phone to quickly check it can easily turn into hours of scrolling through social media, neglecting that huge pile of work that seems to keep growing.
As a student, I am extremely guilty of this and, as I run this fancy little blog, I thought I’d share with you all my top seven tips on how to stay productive throughout your studies, and how I manage to study for hours on end without losing focus.
Turn your phone off
…or at least on do not disturb. If I am studying and my phone screen lights up, I get distracted and turn my attention away from my work. Keeping my phone off, or even face down on my bed behind me, really helps me remain focused while I’m studying.
Schedule a plan
…that way you aren’t wasting time jumping from one piece of work to another. When you have a plan or even a to-do list, it really gives you a clear idea as to what needs to be done.
Take plenty of breaks
…as this will allow you time to rest and give your brain the chance to soak up the information. I usually study for around forty-five minutes and then take a fifteen-minute break.
Do the most important tasks first
…so if you get too tired, the most important pieces of work are complete, and you only have the little tasks to. This means you have a lot less to worry about. I usually do my seminar work first and then, if I have time, rewrite my notes. While this is important, it isn’t something that has a deadline.
Get an alarm clock or a watch
…otherwise, you will be using your phone to check the time and, while this seems like a good idea, once that phone is in your hand, it’ll be a task to put your phone away at the end.
Stay hydrated
…as someone who suffers from migraines, I must make sure that I stay hydrated as I study, otherwise, I get headaches. As well as this, it helps me feel a lot more awake and I can concentrate better.
Stay motivated
…staying motivated can keep you productive. If you are thinking nothing but negativities when you are studying, you aren’t going to be as productive as you could be when you are being positive.
