This is practical advice now from me. I find that short study sessions work well; about 45 minutes is ideal. Rather than making people bored, it leaves everyone wanting more.
But it only works if that 45 minutes is dedicated solely to study. That means:
- no mobile phones
- no young children if possible (e.g. study when they are at school/nursery/playing in the garden)
- no chatting – it is a study session not a social event
- no eating and drinking
- no sorting out papers/books/pencils (do that before the lesson)
45 minutes of intensive study without these distractions is worth many hours of study with these distractions.
And that leaves more time for everything else, inshaa Allaah
