Do you ever find concentrating hard?
Well, concentration is hard. To concentrate well you need to use many different parts of your body.
Concentration also needs practise, just like a muscle you train daily.
Do one thing at a time.
You can't do your homework while you are eating and watching TV at the same time!
Make sure your work-space is clear from clutter.
This is not a good place to study.
This is a good place to study.
Give yourself frequent breaks.
Use a timer. Take a ten minute break and go back to your work.
Is your HW load too big? Break it down into small tasks.
Small task, done. Small task, done. Small task, done.
Soon you will reach your goal.
Give yourself time to sit in silence.
Sit anywhere, with your back straight.
Choose two of these.
Notice any smells.
Notice how your clothes feel.
Notice the taste inside your mouth.
Notice the colours and patterns you see when your eyes are closed.
Listen to the sounds of your body.
Can you feel your heart? Can you hear yourself breathe?
Breathe in and out slowly.
Open your eyes.
Do the same again tomorrow.
