Get Rid of Distractions!
The top 3 distractions in the classroom are usually a noisy, or chatty friend/“neighbor”, bringing a phone into class and trying to sneak screen time, and a cluttered environment/desk space.
If you are struggling with a friend who wants to catch up in the classroom, nicely explain that you sometimes have some trouble focusing and that you’d love to catch up with them before or after class.
If the urge to hop on your phone seems to be an issue, try to invest in a screen time blocker and set it during classroom hours. Often times, you are still able to get urgent calls/texts, but it would prevent you from constantly browsing on your phone.
A cluttered desk space may not seem like it has potential to hinder your focus, but studies suggest that it does play a huge role in success. When you get back to school from Christmas break, try keeping your school desk, backpack and desk space at home free from clutter and distractions.
Just eliminating these three things may promote focus, and stay on top of school work.
