I finished my first year at university and I found that I really have trouble focusing. I know the tricks of limiting distractions, but even in an empty room my mind is always running and thinking about so many things. What tips and strategies can I use to focus in on the current task.
I'm reading/studying a textbook. I'm reading, but my mind is worried or thinking about something totally different [hobbies, stressors, to dos]. I want to be 100% engage in the reading to get the most out of my time studying. How do I get in a focused mindset?
