Improving Concentration

Do you feel like you could get a lot more accomplished if only you could focus? Perhaps things would be a lot easier to manage if you could just concentrate on the list of to-dos. Trouble concentrating is a very frustrating yet common problem. The inability to feel like you can truly concentrate and focus can create many stressors in our lives.

Not Being Able to Focus Can Cause Stressors, Such As:

  • Decreased work/school performance
  • Poor time management
  • Difficulty keeping up with household tasks
  • Self-criticism
  • Procrastination
  • Mental/Physical/Emotional Fatigue
  • Poor sleep habits
  • Increased worry, feeling anxious, and/or overwhelmed
  • Difficulty feeling accomplished
  • Trouble completing projects
  • Intrusive thoughts
  • Feeling down, depressed, or even hopeless
