How can I stop being distracted when studying and doing my homework?

    Go into a room. Shut the door, lock it if necessary. Close the curtain/blinds. Turn off the radio/music etc.,  Turn off the main light, just have a desk light.  That minimises all the distractions.

    Focus. Purely focus on the task at hand. Avoid distractions like phones, tvs, music (if you find it distracting). Eat a solid breakfast, lunch, or dinner depending on the time before doing your homework. The sooner you complete your homework the sooner you will have more free time to do other things. I know it is hard but you will feel better after your homework is complete. Hope this helps!

    Keep distractions to a minimum.

    Deal with hunger first.

    Put the phone on do not disturb.

    Find a spot that works for them.

    Take frequent breaks.

    Work in a space that works for everyone.

    Create a routine to stay organized.

    Make learning fun.

    If you can, have an area where you do nothing but homework. Turn off your phone and put it in another room. If you feel you can't work in silence, listen to classical music.

    Turn off your phone

    lock your phone somewhere, don't listen to music, don't take breaks (because you would just want to be on your phone again and be lazy) have a quiet place to study and make sure you have everything you need

    put your phone in another room. You begin to forget about it without the notification distractions and the sight of it can prevent wanting to go on it. Also, using ur breaks to go on your phone will always end up being 5 hours+

    tell yourself you will do work for five minutes. getting started is the hardest part so once you're on a role, you won't want to stopplay upbeat music. if the work isn't to interesting and unmotivating by playing music you enjoy, it can put you in a better mood and mindset to do your work and make studying or homework more enjoyable

    Put your phone in another room, as I know you have it right by your side, and turn off tv, music, and any other media you have going.

    easiest is to change where/when you study

    Have a quiet peaceful place that you only use for homework and studying.   No electronics, no music, no friends, no interruptions.
