You’ve felt it, I’ve felt it, we’ve all felt it: that feeling of being completely unable to focus on your work. Around you, the office buzzes with productivity, and your grand achievement of the day so far has been noticing that the minutes really seem to take longer than sixty seconds to pass by. We all have those days sometimes – so how can you focus on your work better?
Whether it’s an upcoming college lecture, next semester’s high school Zoom classes, or any other kind of learning, knowing how to pay attention in class feels like the one thing they don’t teach you in school (you know what a mitochondrion is though, right?). There are a lot of reasons you may be having trouble with finding your focus inside the classroom, be it in-person or virtually.
