How to prevent study distractions

Posted on August 15 2019

The best defense, it has long been said, is a good offense.

So when it’s time to defend yourself from study distractions, what should you do? Attack!

Don’t rely on willpower. Instead:
  • Turn off your phone and put it in another room.
  • Tell you friends and family that you need to be left alone.
  • Log out of all social media sites.
  • Turn off email notifications.
  • Keep no more than three tabs open on your browser at a time — one for your school’s dashboard, one to write on, and one for whatever you’re researching at the time.
