Serious question, especially for neurodivergent or otherwise distractable folks: how do you read for study?

Learning always came naturally to me so I never really had to learn *how* to study (plus maths/compsci degree = not much reading). Now adulthood has caught up with me and I find it hard to settle, focus and read productively.

A bit more context: this is something I used to be good at. The literature review phase was always my favourite part of any piece of research and the best bit of my aborted PhD. So now I'm pretty frustrated that it doesn't come so easily and I have a pile of really interesting things I want to learn more about.

@petrichor I had to make sure that I was reading in a way that I could really mark up and aggressively annotate the text -- that was something that didn't come naturally at all and made a lot of difference
