The Methods

1. Get proper sleep.

Sleeping for at least 7-8 hours is advisable because in that time the brain processes the information gained during the day and stores in your brain accordingly. This calms down our brain on a daily basis and we find it easier to wake up with a fresh mind which is ready to take in information again. The fatigue and restlessness is also not there so it's convenient to focus for long hours also.

2. Have a proper diet plan.

Eat diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids and proteins. The food sources for the former are fish, nuts etc, and for the latter is poultry, dairy and pulses. This aids memory power. Also have sufficient amount of carbohydrates to keep u the energy for being focused.

3. Workout

Exerting the extra energy everyday keeps us at bay from anxiety and lethargy, which are found to affect the concentration and memory power of mind adversely. So make sure that you hit the gym every day

4. Meditate

Meditation helps to calm down your mind and increases the ability to focus. It declutters the mind from unnecessary thoughts and streamlines your thinking.

5. Make a time log.

Enter your study/work time in a diary and aim to increase your productive time with every slot. Don't panic if it doesn't increase at once. Have patience and keep trying.

6. Practising Mindfulness

Its a simple technique in which we have to be mindful of the activity which we are currently doing. For example eating, doing yoga and so on. Our concentration might drift from the activity to the worrisome thoughts, but we have to consistently try and get back to the present situation. You might be thinking how is this significant, but we really are absent-minded while doing simple activities because they don't need our concentration and attention to be completed. So being alert and aware of our daily activities might help removing our worrisome thoughts till an extent and also trains the mind to be focused at the activity in hand.

7. Music

It calms down the mind and helps us to be in the moment. You can listen to some relaxing music at low volumes to keep yourself focused.
