how to be able to focus and return to study and play poker with this chaos in the world?
I hope you're doing ok.
The current chaos in the world is just that. The current chaos. Try not to think of it as something extraordinary. I know it is, but you need to move on from that.
Get your head back to how things were when things were normal. If you really push your mind, its not that different really. In fact, in terms of finding time for poker studios, this is probably a great time to do just that.
Studying (anything) gets your mind focussing on that positive aspect of your life and the chaos disappears, even if temporarily.
To try and help you study poker, why not take on the CardsChat Poker Course. Its set out to be done day by day for 30 days, but you can of course do it far quicker than that if you want.
If you have a clear objective, and you have the desire, determination and discipline to achieve it, you do not have to worry about problems that are beyond your control, focus on the things you can control; plan goals, create schedules, have discipline ...
I do not know your routine, but write or put in a spreadsheet your priority tasks (study, work, family, mealtime, personal hygiene ...) you need to fit the study and the practice of poker in the vacant hours. I am sure that in the face of this global health and economic crisis, poker played according to your conditions, will even be a pleasure to help in this very stressful and sad moment for everyone.
Worrying is like walking on a treadmill; it will keep you occupied, but it won't get you very far.
Now is a great time to study and play a tonne. Make the most of the situation and turn it into a positive for you and your poker career.
It's not the outcome of the hand that's important; it's how you got there that defines whether you played it well or not.

keep on studiing and don't let the situation change your mind.
I think every thing is possible and you can manage both...
Keep studiing and poker, maybe more study than poker
but this can change from time to time. I know how you feel
Well first you should be able to enjoy the moment of studying, once you get there don't over do it or you will get exhausted.
If you don't feel like studying when the time comes, take a moment and visualize the pleasure it has given you in the past, take 5-30 mins doing something else that stimulates and wakes you up, and then go for it!
