Put Away Your Phone
Your phone is most likely your number one distraction right now. Nobody's perfect, and it's very hard to pay attention when you know your favorite apps are a click away. However, your schoolwork is more important, all those posts and videos will still be there afterwards.
If you have trouble putting your phone away, try putting it into Do Not Disturb (or your phone's equivalent). This will help lessen the distractions caused by all the incoming notifications.
We all know that drinking water is good for us, however we fail to acknowledge that out bodies would be nothing without it. Drinking water is extremely important as it not only improves concentration and cognition, but it also helps balance your mood.
Make sure you are hydrated all day by keeping a bottle of water around you at all times!
