Anxiety and negative thoughts:

  • Figure out reason for each negative point and seek a solution for it
  • If required talk to your teachers and elders, sometimes just discussing it can solve the problems
  • Practice yoga and meditation for better concentration and eliminate negative vibes
  • Awareness of problems can help students finding better solutions and driving away uneasiness

Lack of concentration:

  • Focus is the main reason for your learning success and failure too
  • Lack of concentration can be due to many reasons including sleeping pattern, attention disorder, spending too much time with gadgets, less physical activities and food habits too
  • Students should look for such reasons if they are facing concentration problems while studying and they must try to improve in these areas
  • Their eating habits should be healthy, sleeping time should be 7-9 hours and should exercise regularly by playing outdoor games
  • Avoid excess use of gadgets before sleeping as it strains eyes, should not read after laying down as irritation in eyes is one of the common reason in lack of concentration

Study Schedule:

  • Many students find it difficult to follow the time schedule they make for studying and they keep delaying their studies
  • Not following the schedule and postponing studies only lead to ineffective studies
  • To avoid this you should plan your studies with short breaks in between for refreshments or recreation so that you can concentrate on your studies properly
  • You should revise your school work after taking a 2 hours break when you come home back from school, this will improve your efficiency

Conclusion: As students will start working on these areas they will see successful outcomes and they will have better understanding of the subjects. Also, parents should check if their child is facing Attention Disorder disease by getting their kids' medical tests done. Students facing such diseases are not able to follow their studies properly and they are under stress as they are not aware of their situation.  Students should not ignore their weak points as ignoring them will only lead to their inefficiency and stress. Students implementing these methods will eventually see an improvement in their overall skills and performance at school.
