Deal with Internal Distractions

Competing activities. Its fairly common that we think of other things when we are trying to focus. If you think of something that you need to do or some thoughts for another assignment, quickly jot it down on a notebook and continue to work on the task that you are embarking on. Then you can continue focusing on the task at hand. If you don't write it down, you tend to continue thinking about it and this will distract you from carrying out the task that you have planned for.

Academic problems. Being anxious about academic problems is a relatively common problem that students face. Instead of merely feeling the anxiety, do something constructive about it. You could write down the fears or anxiety that you have. Very often, you area able to look at the issue more objectively when it's written on paper. You could also share your concern about academic problems with your professor or tutor, and ask them for advice. And remember to tackle these problems as early as possible.

Personal problems. Personal worries and concerns are common internal distracters. Examples would include relationship problems with boyfriend or girlfriend, family members and friends. One measure that you could do is to journal down your thoughts about these problems and talk it out with someone that you trust, e.g. friend, counselor. Make a course of plan what you need to do in order to deal with the problem.
