Tips to control your mind for study

To study effectively it is very necessary to control your mind. Because a controlled mind only can give you desired results.   Here are some ways through which you can control your mind.
  1. Weed out petty negativity: The best way to practice this is to make watertight compartments for your mind. I know  it’s easier said than done but  this is  a sure shot way to overcome distraction. Say, you’ve a personal problem that constantly distract you from your study; you need to  solve the  problem first, before you begin study. One's the problem is solved tell yourself that you’ll not allow anger/negativity to bother you.  
  2. What distracts you? Identifying distracting thoughts is the most important way of controlling the mind. Figure out why you’re not able to focus or pay attention and what keeps your mind per-occupied? Give yourself time to identify these thoughts and write them down. After you’re through with writing them, see them objectively and then you know why these are disturbing and harmful for you. Encourage self talk to overcome this. Once you start doing this regularly, you’ll know how to eliminate these thoughts from your mind. 
  3. Meditate: Remember, meditation is for the mind, what food is to body. It helps in a holistic way, re-energizing you and thereby helping you to control your mind. Learn to relax and meditate even while working. Close your eyes for a while and try concentrating on an object. If you can concentrate for some time, you’ll be the master of your mind very soon. 
  4. Know yourself well: To keep your mind in control, you need to know yourself . You’ve to be aware of who you are and your study goals. Then you can ask your mind to follow you, otherwise, you’ll blindly follow an in disciplined mind and in the end, go nowhere.
