1. When do you need to be focused?
I am a student so I need to be focused a lot of the time. I need to be focused when I am in my classes and listening to my teachers. I also need to be focused when I am at home and studying. It is very important for me to be focused or I will not do well in my exams, and this may have many negative implications.
2. What many distract you when you are trying to stay focused?
There are many distractions in the modem world which I sometimes find difficult to avoid. I think the biggest distraction to my focus comes from my mobile phone. I have many games and social media apps on my phone that often distract me when I am trying to focus on my studies. What makes a mobile phone a particularly bad distraction is that it beeps (哔哔声）at you with new notifications every few minutes. This is very distracting.
3. What do you do to help you concentrate?
There are a few things I do to help me concentrate. The first thing I do is remove any distractions from my environment. For example, when studying at home I unsure that the television is off and my phone is on silent, this way there is no risk of being distracted by these things. Furthermore, I always ensure I have water and snacks as becoming thirsty or hungry can be very distracting when one is trying to focus.
4. Is it difficult for you to stay focused on something?
Sometimes I do find it difficult to stay focused on something. Particularly if the thing I am focusing on is boring. I personally find mathematics very boring, however, it is important for me to do well at school and, therefore, I must concentrate on studying mathematics. Unfortunately，I often find myself daydreaming (白日梦）or falling asleep when I study mathematics.
