Good Concentration Tips

This website gives good tips on how to concentrate better. It's helpful that the website gives a specific causes of low concentration and then gives the corresponding tips to help concentrate better. My biggest issue while studying is not watching TV while studying, so my tip would be to go to a room without a television, but there are other helpful tips on this website for people with other studying problems.

The website was very informative about improving concentration skills. I appreciated how organized and well thought out the site was. The most helpful thing I learned is that there are two types of distractions, one internal and one external. External can be anything from your phone, a pet, friends, music and television. These are distractions you can change or control. Internal distractions are things that are more difficult to control like anxiety, boredom, drowsiness and hunger. With the help of this website I can identify my distractions and make a plan on how to avoid them.

Making Concentration a habit really helps

This topic was very interesting to me currently. I as well as many others have problems with getting distracting while studying. This blog entry was very helpful in the way that it gave me ways to stay concentrated.

For instance with daydreaming, to write down that interesting thought in my head and then return to studying. Usually when studying and I start to daydream I try to stop thinking about that thought but can't seem to get it out of my head. Writing down my thoughts really helped when I had no other way of getting my mind back on the topic of studying.

Making concentration a habit is the same as setting a schedule for studying. If you can set yourself up in the best situation possible you increase the likelihood of improving your grades and learning the information from class. I love the tips for doing the most difficult things first because that is also what I have been learning in my class.

I also liked the idea of a reward system which I don't use right know but plan to use in the future. I am just not sure what types of reward I should use. I also have learned that there is awesome abilities to work in a non-noisy area. I used to be able to study with the t.v. on or the radio blasting, but I have learned that recently it causes me to take a longer break from studying than I should have.
