I have a test tomorrow. It is huge. But, I can't study. Every time I look at material, I feel drawn away from it. It's OB, and I just don't care about OB. It's our last test before the final, and it's worth 20%, so it's critically important. Ugh!
I hate days like that! Sometimes studying is the farthest thing from my mind and the most important thing I have to do. I like to take a run, grab some water, turn on some music, and refocus. It really helps me to clear my mind and get back in the zone. Good luck to you!
When a had a period when I couldn't concentrate enough to study, I'd tell myself I only had to study for the next 30 minutes. Before
I began, I'd go to the john, make sure I had a drink, (juice, a soft drink) had all my material, turned the music down but not off, and I'd begin by just reviewing my notes. If at the end of the 30 minutes, I was able to concentrate, I kept going, but if I were still unable to study, I'd go for a wak or otherwise distract myself, then try it again.
