Many a times you want to finish a project or an assignment or do any kind of work but you are not motivated to do it. You loose concentration and then maybe you don’t wish to complete that task and you procrastinate it. You may want to complete your work on time but due to lack of motivation you may not be willing to do that and you may give yourself a lot of excuses to not do that work, for example – you are tired, you can do it tomorrow, it is not that important etc.
Ways to concentrate on your work
If you are not motivated enough you cannot concentrate on your work. Motivation is the biggest reason for you to concentrate on your work. You can be motivated to do a thing on time. For that you can attach picture frames on the area of your study with many motivational quotes or the goal you want to achieve. You can even have a motivational wall where you can keep adding quotes or your goals/dreams. By looking at those pictures everyday you will be motivated to complete your work on time.
Studies have proved that listening to music helps in concentration. While listening to relaxing or soothing music you will be able to relax and concentrate on your work. While in some cases people find music distracting so for those people who are not into music they can just turn on a relaxing melody or can just turn the music off. It is also proven that if you listen to calm music you can sleep better and fast. If your sleep cycle is of 7-8 hours you will be fresh enough the next day and you will be able to concentrate better.
3. Organise your area of study
If you organise the place where you study or where you usually do your work you will want to work more. If the place is clean and tidy then you may want to actually sit and do your work with concentration. Keeping only the necessary stuff that you require and removing all the items that are just kept and are of no use helps a lot. Items like pens , highlighters , binders, paperclips , sticky notes and your laptop are likely to be kept on the area of your study.
4. Turning off the wifi or your mobile data
If you want to concentrate on your work you have to be away from the distraction. Switch off your wifi or your mobile data to keep you off from distractions otherwise you would want to check all the notifications or your social media accounts now and then. You can even put your mobile on flight mode. Do not work continuously for hours. Take short breaks in between because that will help you relax your mind and help you in concentrating better.
5. Always keep mints with you
Mints can help you reduce your headache and increase concentration. Eat your mints in gaps between your work or study and it tastes pretty good too.
6. Grape juice
Drinking grape juice helps in reducing migraine and improving concentration. You can always keep grape juice in a bottle with you. It not only tastes good but it will also help you in improving your concentration.
7. Never keep food near you while you work.
Keeping food near you while you are working leads to distraction. Always eat before you study so that you won’t be empty stomach and you will be able to concentrate better on your work.
These were some easy ways with which you can concentrate on your work easily and you will really want to work more and work smart.
