A common frustration in the busy world we live in is difficulty concentrating. Many mental illnesses are associated with difficulty concentrating. Concentration problems are associated with depression, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and psychotic disorders like schizophrenia. Regardless of what is causing you concentration difficulties, there are  ways in which you can help your brain focus. Here are 3 tips:
1.Chunking. Chunking is a technique used to facilitate retention. It’s why phone numbers are separated into sets of 3’s and/or 4’s. Use this principle to increase concentration. Create to-do lists and then separate your duties into chunks. Tackle one at a time. Then, take a short break to reset your brain.
2.      Know yourself. How do you concentrate best? Do you concentrate best with music or in silence? Knowing yourself helps you set yourself up for concentration success
3.      Objectify. Having something physical to touch, like a small rock or other trinket, can increase concentrate ability. Being able to rhythmically control an object creates positive changes in the brain that actually improve concentration.
