Re: The best distraction???

Reading a book while listening to music is the best for me! XD

Re: The best distraction???

TV is the biggest distraction. I'm addicted to watching Gossip Girl and another stuff. It's more procrastination than distraction now that I think about it. Before important things like exams I like playing the piano. Like just before I leave to sit an exam I'll quickly hop on a play whatever while whoever might be driving me warms up the car. That really helps me relax and focus on something else that doesn't make me so nervous. 

 

On a side note, I tend to study with music on because it helps motivate me. When I'm concentrating though I can't even hear the music because my mind is all concentrated on the study. My mum thinks turning the music on in the first place is pointless if I can't hear it. 

Re: The best distraction???

I find exercise is usually pretty good - but then I tend to think about alot of stuff while I'm walking/running so it doesn't always work.. Also if I'm stressed or upset about something I'll usually sit down and play some songs on the piano....

Re: The best distraction???

Some great distraction strategies mentioned in this thread! Here's mine:

 

1) Music is my life. I have music on when I am studying, I have music on whilst on public transport and I have music on right now as I am surfing through the forums. 

 

2) Colouring-in. During my HSC, I did lots of colouring-in. The more severe the procrastination, the more satisfied I am with the end result of the colouring-in. Funny that huh? Regardless, colouring-in is great as a distraction, to increase effectiveness, have music on too. Smiley Happy

 

3) Chewing gum. It gives me something to do.
