Watch more How to Study videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/413809-How-to-Study-for-a-Long-Time-without-Getting-Bored Facts and figures starting to blend together in a horrible haze? Here's how to keep from getting lost in brain space. Step 1: Eradicate distractions Enter a fortress of solitude -- research shows that low-level distractions can make a task feel boring. Hide your cellphone, tell your online social network to de-friend you instantly if they see you log in, and seal yourself in a quiet room. Tip If you're planning a really long cramming session, break it up with a nap. One study found an hour's worth of shut-eye can increase your ability to focus. Step 2: Embrace your emotions Emotional entanglement distracting you? Admit how you're feeling, even out loud -- those who can identify how they feel often have better focus. Step 3: Engage yourself Don't just take notes; engage with the material creatively. Invent a song about the topic at hand, or recreate historical events and fictional plotlines. It's easier to stay interested when you make the material come alive. Step 4: Take a shower Studied so long you've stopped absorbing material? Take a shower -- the change of pace will stimulate your mind and help refresh your body. Step 5: Make up a challenge Make a game out of your work to stave off boredom. Try to score higher and higher throughout your study session, and be sure to reward your triumphs. You've earned it! Did You Know? In 2009, a study found that nearly 50 percent of college freshmen that drink spent more time drinking than studying.

@Marvin_martian I don't know what you mean by how exactly. Is it supposed to be impossible? I used to study final exams only the night before the exams continuously because I work and study better under pressure. I am currently revising for one of my finals btw.

This is why you should drink and study at the same time.
Stefen James (3 years ago)
That was not HELPFUL.
TatTvamAsi (3 years ago)
I think it was. The point is, remove distraction and find ways to stay engaged. When you are engaged in what you are doing the mind doesn't wander. It takes practice though so don't give up. Good luck. 😁

If you're stressed, drink a couple of alcoholic beverages to open your mind. That way you'll take your mind off the potential what-if's and your failures. You'll get the edge off and focus on the actual work. This "technique" has helped me to get better grades. But remember, be responsible.
