College and homework, doesn’t really sound good together, right? When you complete your school life, you think for once you would be able to be free from homework. Well, that is not true. It keeps on following you throughput life. After long days at college, you get tired and do not want to do your homework, and that is quite natural. However, there are a few tips and tricks, very simple things, which you can do, to improve your focus and concentration and complete your homework.
Small things matter, big time!
It is the small things you do, that can help you improve your concentration and determination. If you are not focused, it might take you hours to complete a very trivial homework. However, if you are focused, you will be able to do it in a matter of minutes. Not only you will be saving your time, but you will also save yourself from the frustration and anxiety that follows with not being able to do your work at home.
Here are a few things that you can do before starting your homework.
- If you have had an especially long and tiring day, have a bath before you start your work. It helps cool you down and rest your mind so you can concentrate properly.
- If you are into music, listen to soft music. Music can have a soothing effect. If you are used to working with music, listen to some relaxation music while you work as well. It helps you concentrate.
- You can always do meditation to improve focus and concentration. It is not only a cliché, it really works as well.
Once you have started on your homework, you might lose focus from time to time. Follow some simple steps and you will not deviate.
- Do not move onto other things. Breaks only work if you have been studying for long hours. Taking a break after every 15 minutes never helps. Keep all you need to study, all your books, copies and everything, including drinking water so you do not need to get up anytime soon.
- Keep your phone away. Social networks and instant messaging tools and all other similar things can be very distracting. Avoid them while you study.
- Make small goals for yourself and asses yourself on those goals. You can even reward yourself on achieving them!
