Well when I study language or actually study anything, music always helps me focus. For other things, I'm the one who motivates myself. I have to keep telling myself to do it so I guess that also helps me focus

this might sound stupid but when i cant focus on my studies, i think about my future and how if i didnt study id turn out to be a hobo on the street

then i just dive right into my studies

in studying:
setting up the place usually helps me focus like all the books i need should be on my workplace, and my notebooks so that i could write some stuff (it helps me remember the lesson more). if it's a math homework then pieces of scratch paper and a calculator should be beside me, also i use a pencil if i'm solving math problems so that i could easily erase the mistake i did (i want a clean paper to work in)

and oh the thought of it's deadline is tomorrow (which actually helps me be motivated in finishing my work)

i usually avoid distracting things like having a song playing in the background or turning the tv on for the sake of eliminating the silence because i have a very short attention span i always end up listening to the song or watching tv instead of studying.

shuffling cards, i found out just recently : shuffling cards really helps. Especially to calm frustrations. other than that... Willpower i guess is the best thing to keep me focused. Incentives don't really help at all, not all the time at least.

In study or work for me is always either music or tv with rather low volume. It will create sort of background noise/ambience tht I don't really pay so much attention to. So I usually listen to songs/movies/drama in laguange tht I dont understand (so much) hence the love for J-drama/rock etc. Unfortunately I started to picking up the language & my brain sometimes translate the lyrics/scripts ditto...
The next weapon tht I have to stay focus is a quick exercise, I'll stop doing my work and go out for a jog or at least some abs crunch whatever appropriate in my room. It works!

The rewards in the end and the fact I can just kick back and chill when it's all over. Also listening to classical music when I'm really stressed out
