Block distracting sites. If Facebook or Tumblr is your Achille’s heel, you don’t have to disconnect your internet in order to get focused. Chrome and Firefox have apps that will block certain internets during a set period of time so you can focus. Check out Chrome’s extension StayFocusd and Firefox’s app LeechBlock.
Take frequent breaks. By giving yourself regular breaks to stretch, grab a snack, surf the web, or gab with a friend, you’ll be less likely to get distracted.
Don’t relying on stimulants. While caffeine and energy drinks may give you the juice you need to get through a long study session, they won’t help your sleep schedule. Stimulants have also been connected to memory loss — something that no college student can afford!
