After all, it happens with so many people that for few minutes we concentrate, then it breaks.
Sometimes, the wall in-front of us become more interesting than our books.
Most of the times, we tend to actively and zealously try plans to concentrate, but it only lasts for few minutes. Yes, we make timetable and then our thought process simply crumbles.

Gift yourself with something which you actually like for yourself. It can be anything such as playing your favourite game or munching your delicious cake etc.
Ensure that everything is ready

Take adequate sleep so that you can work in a fresh manner.

Also, there are times when our anxieties hinder our process, For example, if we have fought with others.

Closely monitor your surroundings
It is important to study on chair rather than on bed. Or else you tend to feel lazy and soon lie down. Other than that, try to remain in a secluded environment where there is minimal activities taking place. So that you can actually concentrate fully. Similarly, don’t let the phone anyway near you, especially if you don’t need to browse educational sites online. Since, it becomes hard to control the urge for checking notifications of our phone.
