At the moment i was kicked out for around 8 weeks towards the end of year 10 and the school allowed me to comeback. Since it is the half term and i have alot of work too do i wanted to know how can i stop my addiction to games and use the energy i put into it towards revisiona and work. Like usually when i want to do work i distract myself and i end up doing something else like using a gadget or thinking about irrelevant things and this has been a ongoing issue for YEARS!. For instance i would have a mindset to do work when i have the books infront of me i just freeze up and keep on delaying my work then once i finally start doing work i would make a page into it i get 'tired', 'demotivated' or i feel like i cannot do anymore so what can i do to stop this mindset and all i ever think to do is play a game or watch videos.

Switch off any devices you've got. If you are having trouble concentrating, drink a refreshing beverage (I use green tea). Next up take breaks. In those breaks relax and look back on what you've learnt. Preferably 20 minute breaks. Don't just memorise everything. Understand the concept and then it'll be easier to memorise. Take own notes. At this point I'm not even answering your original question. Back to topic... Set a specific time to play games. For me I actually divide it into the whole day... Then once you've enjoyed some games then get to studying. Dont stop to do anything else. Well bathroom breaks are necessary. It also helps if you are chewing/biting something. This helps to concentrate. I eat jelly beans. This is all I am doing for my GCSE next year. And I have a good grasp of almost everything. I know everyone's different but give it a shot. REMEMBER TO THINK LIKE A NORMAL PERSON. DON'T OVERTHINK. ALSO READ THE SYLLABUS GUIDES IF YOU HAVE THEM.
