11 Quick Tips To Help You Concentrate On Your Homework


If you find yourself having a hard time concentrating when doing your homework, you should know that you are not alone. Chances are hundreds of students at your school alone have the same trouble. Here are some quick tips you should consider to regain your motivation and ability to concentrate:

  1. Creating a Great Workspace
  2. Find a workspace where you can sit comfortably without tiring and where you will have enough light to do your work. If you work in your room make sure you aren’t working on your bed since you might get the urge to nap.

  3. Make a List of Your Assignments
  4. You can do this immediately after school or before you set down to do your homework. Making a list will help you visualize everything you need to get down each evening and should help you stay focused for several hours.

  5. Prioritize Your Tasks
  6. Take a look at all the assignments you need to finish each evening. If you have something do at the end of the week then you should set that task lower on your list than you would something doe the following day. Go for the harder and more pressing assignments first.

  7. Prepare Your Materials
  8. Get all of your necessary materials ready before you set yourself down to do your work. Keep your textbooks nearby and preferably in order. Have tools like your calculator, dictionary, thesaurus or study guides nearby.

  9. Have Some Snacks Ready
  10. A lot of students tend to lose their concentration the moment they get hungry or feel low on energy. Don’t let this happen to you. Prepare some small and healthy snacks to keep at arms’ length.

  11. Find Music that Helps You
  12. It is okay to listen to music as long as you choose something that isn’t distracting. You might need to try a few different styles before you find something you don’t find yourself singing along with. Keep your choice light.

  13. Review Class Notes and Assignment
  14. Before getting started with your work you might find it helpful to review whatever class notes you have pertaining to the assignment you are working on that evening. A short review should help you focus on the task at hand.

  15. Check Off Completed Tasks
  16. As you complete each task it’s a good idea to check it off from your list. This helps motivate you as you visualize the finish line and realize all that you have already accomplished.

  17. Take Regular Short Breaks
  18. When you make your schedule each night be sure to schedule regular breaks. Some students prefer to do so after each hour of work, while others prefer to do so after they finish a specific number of tasks. Do whatever works best for you.

  19. Review After Each Section
  20. A lot of students who do really well on tests do so because they take the opportunity to use homework time as study time. Review each section after you have completed it and you’ll find that you understand the material better when you need to take a quiz.

  21. Put Material Away When Finished
  22. After you finish one assignment put it away so you don’t let your workspace become overly crowded or cluttered with your paperwork. This will help you concentrate on each subsequent assignment.
