You Will Need
- Healthy breakfast
- Reading material
Eat well in the morning to raise your supply of sugar, carbohydrates, and proteins, which sharpen focus and energy during the day. Make sure it’s healthy stuff.
Meditate regularly to improve attention. Studies indicate that meditation improves the ability to retain and respond to stimuli.
Read a lot
Read daily. Shut out noise and commotion and get interested in subjects that excite you. Keep to a weekly diet of reading.
Do slow movement exercise, like yoga, to help focus and direct energy.
Double your attention
Double your attention span by self-hypnosis: Act as if you are capable and confident and your brain will prepare itself to record information.
Reduce internet use
Cut down on your internet use. The repetitive and rapid-fire changing of subjects and stimuli conditions the brain to shorten the attention span.
Program your unconcious
Program your unconscious by repeating a mantra such as "I am making my attention span better every day" several times a day and before bed. Memorize it; believe it.
