How To Improve Your Concentration

1. Practice makes the man perfect

If you are good at a particular task, do it till you become exceptionally good. If you lag behind in another, do it more often by setting certain targets for learning. Consequently, even slight success can build up your confidence and interest, thereby indirectly doing wonders to your concentration levels.

2. Food for thought

Food items like blueberries, green tea, avocados, leafy green vegetables, fatty fish, water, dark chocolate, flax seeds and nuts might be said to boost your ability to focus. “A wholesome breakfast is necessary to provide the energy and consequent focus throughout the day. Being the first meal of the day, it sets way for all the mental as well as physical activities.

3. Penning down

Penning down all that needs to be done and accordingly chalking out a schedule is imperative. But mere paper work won’t do, one needs to adhere by the time allocated to each task. This kind of regularizing automatically trains the mind after a few days.

4. Keep the body fit

Swimming, skipping and even playing with others (basketball, volley ball etc) are effective ways to improve your concentration. Trataka is a traditional practice that some physicians advice as an additional exercise. It is a form of meditation that involves staring at a single point such as a black dot or candle flame for 30-40 minutes. It is said to stimulate the ‘third eye’, bringing your mind to a state of awareness. Thus helping in improving focus and concentration.
