Concentrating at work

Does anyone have any helpful tips to get through a whole working day! My mind is all over the place...

    Hi Abbie, I have the same problem. I break down my work into 30 minute or 1 hour chunks. And take a little break in between each chunk

    Hi Abbie, there's a great technique called Pomodoro, which is where you break your work up into 25 minute chunks with a 4 minute break in between. When you've done 4 sessions of work you give yourself a 15 minute break. I find working like this really helps me concentrate! 

    This is a really great idea. Thanks for sharing.

    This is a great idea, thanks @Lucy01 , not for me, but for my daughter who is studying for her A Levels, and finds it so hard to concentrate.
