How To Avoid Distractions While Doing Holidays Homework

School feels distant when on holiday and activities unrelated to school are aplenty. You are still saddled with holiday homework. If you can’t concentrate and avoid distractions, this guide offers the best pointers.

  • Create a planner
  • Write down all the homework you need to have done with the estimated amount of time to complete each task.

  • Prioritize your work
  • Create a prioritized list of your assignments. Give prominence to those with early submission dates, require more time and those you find difficult. Make a decision on the order you will complete each.

  • Set up a study area
  • Define an area in your house that you will be studying from. Have a desk and a comfortable chair. Place all your working materials in this area. Ensure the area is free from distracting electronics, is isolated and quiet, can be locked and has good lighting.

  • Work at your optimal time
  • It’s a good practice to tackle your assignments during the time of day you are at your peak. Then you can fully immerse yourself in the tasks and benefit from increased energy, awareness and concentration.

  • Inform your family
  • Announce your study time beforehand to your family. This way they will know when to keep off, offer you support to accomplish your task and reschedule activities they would include you into other times.

  • Take short breaks
  • Schedule breaks in between tasks when studying. This is a good time to snack, take a power nap or just relax. Short breaks help reinvigorate you. An added advantage to be gain from this is to use the breaks as a reward: aim to have a part of your tasks complete before taking a break.

  • Avoid distractions
  • Actively strive to retain focus during your study time. This means off your phone, TV, and music. If you do not require the internet to complete your work, switch that off as well. Generally, identify anything that might break your focus and eliminate it from your study area.

  • Establish a routine
  • Build a steady and consistent workflow and stick to it. You are free to adjust it in the initial stages to reach an optimal state but slowly become consistent. A routine helps to curate your brain, a purposeful system.
