Just imagine You and your PC + internet are locked in one room. Yes, it becomes a better place to work without any disturbance.

So, find a quiet place to do work or learn something. Because your mind gets to focus on that thing only.

2. Make Plan

First, prepare a plan before starting any project or work. Split the task and allocate the time to every task according to you.

Also, prepare a To-do list daily and write down the subtask to complete.

3. Take Breaks

Programming is the game of mind right. And your mind also needs some healthy food and Food for the mind is enough breaks.

If you work multiple hours without any breaks, it may lead to information overload, anxiety, and lower the quality of your work.

So, take a break and meet your crush (if possible), Do some exercise, spend a few hours with nature or do something that makes you feel better.

Number 3 is so important . You cannot function at a high level all day by sitting in your chair. Even if you have nothing else to do , get up , take a walk/ read a book etc do something else for some time and then come back.
