Let me take a guess how you sit down to “study”. First, you put your phone on vibrate and set it on the table next to you. Next you take out your laptop and put it in front of you, with your social media apps running the background, probably even have your text messages streaming to your laptop so you’re getting doubly-texted. Then you take out some of your stuff, plop it on the desk, see who just texted you, shuffle around some papers, text them back, open your book to the homework page, check your email, open your notebook and write your name and date at the top, text your friend to see what they’re doing for dinner, read the first homework question…you get the point.
