Taking breaks while studying not only helps you study

Taking breaks while studying not only helps you study, but it also helps with distractions. On your break, check your phone, social media, or surf the web for a few minutes. Limit yourself to how long your break is, set an alarm, and stick to it. For some people, this can be a challenge. For some people taking a break and checking your phone or social media can be a distraction after the break if they can’t stop thinking about it. So if you feel like you can’t go back to studying after that, then stretch or go for a small walk to get some fresh air.
Make a Schedule Making a schedule could also help when trying to avoid and deal with distractions. Finding a time when you are most productive and then setting that time aside for homework and studying could help. Having a schedule not only keeps track of when things may be due, but also helps you know when you’ll be able to concentrate the most on the work. With a schedule, your time will be managed more efficiently.
Clear Your Workspace Having a desk that’s covered in papers and other things can be highly distracting.
