Always distracted and wondering how to be in focus when studying? We were all once a student before, who tried different methods to see which worked. Here are some ways we believe will work!
1. STAY AWAY FROM YOUR BED
Don’t you feel like going into your bed after looking at this photo? Our comfortable beds are the most attractive, especially when we are studying. Avoid your bed at all costs! Those times when we got bored of studying and decided to hop into our bed to rest for just a short while and end up falling asleep? If possible, study at a place without your bed to focus better.However, it is totally alright to take power naps of 20 minutes just to recharge!
2. LISTEN TO THE CORRECT TYPE OF MUSIC
It’s fair to say that majority of us prefer to study while listening to music – be it the latest EDM hits or upbeat songs from Coldplay. Subconsciously, we will even sing with the pop music that we are tuning in to!Research has shown that classical music is the best music to listen to when studying as it’s peaceful and harmonious. Songs without lyrics such as background or nature music are great too, as lyrics are really distracting. Consider checking out Spotify’s Focus playlist for a wide range of playlists that could help you when studying!
Tempted to reply your messages when you are studying? Turn off the vibration and put your phone away from you. Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat are especially distracting when you are studying.The ability to concentrate and focus largely depends on your ability to block out distractions!
4. STAY ORGANISED
A messy table where you scramble to find a certain piece of paper is not advisable. Try to file your notes for easy reference. Also, only put the essentials which you need for studying – stationery, studying materials, water. Anything that distracts you should be put away!If you are looking for a new study table or shelf, SCANTEAK offers a wide range of furniture with storage spaces to help you compartmentalized your studying materials when it gets a little too messy!

5. ESSENTIAL OILS TO ADD TO YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
Aromatherapy is a great way to help set the tone when creating a productive space. A scented ambience is always good for the mind.For example, rosemary oil can be used to boost memory, as well as increase mental power to aid in concentration. Also, peppermint oil increases mental clarity and focus.Simply take a few drops and rub it on the back of your neck and ears.
All the best with studying!
