Dear Maria,

Studying is difficult for some people because they have trouble focusing on one task for a long period of time. But you can overcome this very easily. Remember when we say study, it’s all about interest. So first of all you have to build interest in the subject.  Try to make your interest even if you don’t like the topic. Indeed in the next classes you would have a chance to select your own topic of interest. But consideration is important. Here are some tips to develop better concentration while studying.

Go to a library or a classroom when you seriously intend to study. Avoid too comfortable chairs.

Do five minutes of light exercise to wake up.

Break up large tasks into achievable subtasks. Do the most intimidating task first.

Get a dedicated space, chair, table, lighting and environment.

Alternate reading with more active learning exercises.

Take regular, scheduled breaks that fit you.

“Be Here Now”: This deceptively simple strategy is probably the most effective. When you notice your thoughts wandering astray, say to yourself, "Be here now," and gently bring your attention back to where you want it.

Your Uncle
