Tips to enhance concentration

Eliminate distractions

  • Limit background noise by using headphones, for example.
  • Place your phone away from you or install a website blocker.
  • Write down thoughts that distract you. You can come back to them later.

Take breaks

  • Divide your work into phases and take breaks.
  • Rejuvenate during breaks: get up and stretch your legs or make a cup of coffee.

Make a plan

  • Make a to-do list and come back to it when your mind starts to wander.
  • Map out your daily and weekly schedule.
  • Plan ahead when you’ll stop working and set aside time to rest.

Find ways that work for you

  • Think about what helps you to concentrate or what distracts you.
  • Choose an environment that makes it easy to concentrate.
  • Work when you’re at your most alert.
  • Listening to music or a moving around a bit can help you concentrate.

Motivate and encourage

  • Remind yourself what you’re working for.
  • Imagine what it’ll feel like once the job is finished.
  • It’s not possible to succeed every time! When your concentration wavers, take it easy and take a break.
