Thanks for your feedback all! Glad you are finding this article useful :) I just wanted to address Ivan Whittey's (excellent) question on distinguishing between distractions and changing contexts. When I mentioned changing contexts, I just meant varying the environment/space you study in or how you practice recalling information. I agree that if changing your posture while studying, like standing on one foot while you complete a multi-choice question, is as distracting as the notifications that pop on your phone, then it will not be helpful to studying. Happy for others to share their experiences!
