Hi Lolostar! He says, 'I don't know what to do. I start off studying but I always end up doing something else.' So his problem is not starting studying. The problem is that he soon stops studying because he starts doing something else. Does that make sense?
Best wishes, Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

I think I get distracted and waste time because I use my phone to send messages and call my friends.
I get distracted because I go into the kitchen many times to eat. For me music isn't a distraction but when I study History or I have to revise subjects I don't listen to music.

For me is complicated to study when I put my cell phone near me, because when I am "tired" of to study I catch it and waste my time

I put my cell phone on silence. I put near of me a coffee (because I'm a sleepy person) and sometimes I put too a cake and each time that I learn something of the things that I need to study I eat a little bit

I am often in this situation. Everytime I read magazine on the internet over 30 minutes, I start off a working but end up other else.
So I will try to spend less 10 minutes to read magazine

I used to listen to music to study but now I can't concentrate with music . Well It depends on what subject you study
for instance when I study mathematics I can concetrate very well with music but when I study biology or other subjects I need turn off music or my mobile phone

My mobile and noise come from outside stop me from work. I can study better by turning my phone off and closing all windows.

Hello every one , hello team
I think of my opinion there are some things work to wasting time during the study , for example , and I speak about myself , The electric cutting this the main reason in the wasting time , and too finding cell phone , if the TV turn on will work to stop studying . so that I agree with mother's Tom when she give her son that advice's to study hard.
best regards

Hello Valeria,
I agree with your tips. as for animals I hardly recommend you not to have a pet because you will need to pay attention to it and the animals will need care. and whereas we have school we always snowed under with work.

The first thing which always stops me from working are all the electronic devices. Secondly, the music which i listen when i do exercises. Whether you want to study better, you just turn off all your devices which will disturb you whereas doing your exercises or homework.

Wo it is a difficult question to answer, but I would say that nowadays the smartphones are a typical problem for student, especial for me, because all the time I want to check out my phone. On the other hand, sometimes every 30 minutes I need to take a rest and smatphone is my alternative, but I know...I need to change my habits.
