    Wandering how do students keep focused for long period of time?

    I really struggle to keep focused on my study. MY brain feels foggy. I don`t want to binge on caffeine and nicotine. I start something and then zone off in to a sleepy dreamy state.

    It is worse if i have to sit in a hot class room.

    To keep myself focused on my studies I usually do a bit of exercise before, mid-way and after the study. For example you could do push ups (e.g. 30) or sit-ups and so forth.

    Keep drinking water or a cold fruit juice, that helps me and also don't do one long study period. Break it up into short pieces, 30 mins then break and so forth.

    Hope this helps!

    If you find yourself bored, losing motivation or zoning out it's often the result of one of two problems.

    Either you're method for revising and working is not appropriate for you and isn't keeping you engaged

    OR

    You're studying for too long and getting bored.

    Or both. If you don't find the work engaging you'll naturally get bored out it. Likewise if you spend too long on it you'll get bored. Break revision down into smaller chunks and use methods that you actually engage with. If reading notes doesn't work, try flashcards. If that doesn't work make up games. And so on.

    Thanks. Recovering from the cold so hardly any energy for exercises. But once recovered i will keep that in mind.
