With so many schools offering online classes now, it makes sense that you’d want to participate in one or two. But you might find that it’s a little bit tougher to stay focused when you’re attending class from the comfort of your own home. If you’re struggling to stay on task in your online classes, here are a few tips.
The first thing you need to do is set up a space dedicated to online learning and homework. This space will ideally not be near any of your relaxation spaces. This means you shouldn’t be working from bed or from your favorite reading spot. Dedicating a space to working can help you stay focused and on task as you move through your online classes. Make sure you have a chair that feels comfortable, but that isn’t designed for lounging. A nice desk chair will be perfect.
It’s also important that you limit the number of distractions around you. A great way to do this is to keep your phone and any other technological distractions away from your work space.
