Hi,

between various problems and above all with my aunt who was ill with cancer, I lost my concentration. I can not stay focused for the study, above all in the last few weeks since I have heard the news.
I feel pretty stressed out, I'm procrastinating and spend much time divagarmi. I would like some practical advice on how to concentrate, how to organize my time to get results.

Thank you.

For studying, most people can only concentrate in 30-45 minute sessions. After that period, they lose focus and are less efficient. In my experience, stress can shorten my usual study period. So, arrange your time in 30-minute increments. Every 30 minutes, switch subjects or activities or take a 5 minute break.

It's also best to have a dedicated, quiet study space with all your supplies. Use that space only for studying. When you take breaks, leave that area. [I know this may be hard if you don't live in an American home with bedrooms, living room, family room, home office, etc.]

For stress, the standard advice is to get enough sleep, regular exercise, good diet (short on red meat, high on citrus, fruits, and vegetables). B vitamins might help.
