Before you sit down to study or do homework, make sure that you have every possible distraction taken care of, so your studies will not be interrupted. Such as unplugging the phone, having a clean surface area to work at, setting the lighting correctly for your eyes, etc. Also make sure you have everything at your space, that you might need, like pens, paper, something to drink, candy,etc. If you like to listen to music while you study, get that going. Do everything possible so you do not have to get up and break your concentration level. Have everything you need before you sit down for a few hours of study. Run to use the bathroom before you sit down...one less distraction.
