Just wondering if anyone has any ideas for improving concentration. I used to mediate, but can't even focus on that now.

I also used to write, but now I seem to have writers block, can't even come up with a decent poem. This has been happening for about 6 months or so now. I just feel all light-headed all the time. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas of how to fix this cuz its so frustrating mad.gif

I lie, I wait, I stop, I hesitate, I am, I breathe, I meant, I think of me. Is it any wonder I can't sleep? All I have is all you gave to me. Is it any wonder I found peace through you? Its not enough, just a touch. Its not enough. I taste, I love, I come, I bleed enough, I hate, I'm not, I was, I want too much. Its not enough, just a touch. Its not enough.

stop trying to concentrate. reverse psychology your brain so it does smile.gif
failing that, i always found a nice hot bubbly bath and classical or instrumental music always got me concentrating again.
i say always cause i have the same problem you do *hugs* it's why i'm not doing too well with my a-levels so far... unsure.gif

ooo. tai-chi thing to try:
sit in a good posture with your hand out in front of you. kind of in a praying position, but kept as close together as possible without touching.
as you breathe in, move them apart slightly, let it feel natural. then, as you breathe out, let them return to a position that feels right, just not touching.
you should feel a weird sensation growing, like a ball of energy, between your hands, that you can grow and shrink and twist your hands around.
it sounds strange, but it was taught to me whilst in paris, and once i'd mastered it, it never failed to help me focus.
i should go and try it now, really! smile.gif

Oooh that sounds cool. I'm gonna go try it. Soon as I can prise myself away from the computer. Excersise is apparently good for concentration too. *wishes she still had a bicycle or something*

Apparently drinking the recommended daily amount of water improves your concentration no end. Being a gradual thing, you might not notice it really. But if you then stop drinking a good amount, the sudden drop is extremly noticeable. I speak from experience.

Today I tried timetabling everything I did, and it worked surprisingly well. I actually got some work done too, which shocked me. I'm trying it again tomorrow.

If your smoking weed regularly, that might be it. Bad for concentration and short term memory

1. I don't smoke weed. Only have about 4 times. I can't stand it, makes me really depressed.

2. I drink the RDI of water already... cuz its meant to be healthy, or something.

3. As for timetables - I am pretty organised. Its more I have a hard time trying to think clearly, everything just feels fuzzy. I can't write a decent poem anymore sad.gif

I have come to the conclusion that I need to sort out some personal matters first. I think they may be hindering my concentration.
