Improve your concentration

accreditation

You know you have to finish the task at hand, but you just can’t get down to doing it. Here's how to improve your concentration.

Take action:
Do one thing at a time – prioritise and set a specific time period in which to complete the task; write down tasks and tick off those you complete; break big tasks down into smaller, manageable ones; stick to a routine – set times for specific tasks; get rid of anything that might distract you; exercise regularly; watch what you eat; keep sugar and caffeine consumption to a minimum; get enough sleep – overtiredness shuts down the brain; and seek medical help if your lack of concentration persists – a medical condition could be causing it.
