Tips to Do Better
When you think, “If I could take something to help me focus, I’d ace my test.”
Find a new place to study and get away from things that often distract you. A place with natural light and few people can be beneficial to the learning environment. The reality is, people aren’t very good at multitasking—doing things like listening to people talk at the same time you’re trying to read is often unproductive.
When you think, “I still have some of those pills left over from when I got hurt. They really helped me loosen up and play better.”
Create a pre-game ritual like listening to a certain playlist to get your head in the game. The reality is, routines can help your mind focus and signal you to start thinking a specific way. This way of thinking is much more beneficial long-term.
