Sometimes, the obstacle comes from within, in which case the best solution is often to take a break for a few days, meditate, and do some fun activities unrelated to languages before getting back to your study routine. More often, the distractions come from outside. We are exposed to more information, and just pure noise than we have ever been, and this can make concentrating on your learning a genuine struggle. Fortunately, there are lots of neat little tools that can alleviate some of these problems!
