We’ve all been there and found ourselves getting easily distracted with the inevitable hustle and bustle of everyday life. It’s part and parcel of being human.

Hunger, fatigue, stress, the phone, relationship problems, computer, email, ticking clocks, your neighbor’s annoying dog, money problems, your coworker’s music (doesn’t it seem that no matter how low the volume is, sometimes you just can’t tune it out no matter how hard you try?), the worries in your head and boredom or disinterest with what you’re doing all contribute to lack of concentration.
The result is, you miss out on a lot, and sometimes you spend all day accomplishing exactly nothing, just because your attention is too scattered.
But imagine if you could learn to concentrate, anytime, anywhere, regardless of the environmental distractions…
Even the most tranquil setting can leave you distracted and unable to concentrate. That is because the most powerful distractions are NOT external. They come from your mind, in the form of the thousands of thoughts it generates every day.
Meditation can help you learn to tune out distractions and concentrate your attention. The problem with traditional meditation is that no matter how scattered you feel, you still have to focus and concentrate just to get into the meditative state! Of course that can be an exercise in frustration. But using the gentle, effective binaural beats technology, you’ll find it incredibly easy to get into the meditative state where brain activity slows and both internal and external distractions fade away.
Once you’re relaxed, you will find it easy to focus your attention (and keep it there), rather than allowing your mind to take you for a ride through the forest of thoughts.
This kind of mental discipline comes much easier with the use of meditation. All you have to do to improve your ability to concentrate is choose something to focus on, and then hold your attention there while you meditate.
Once you’ve learned to do this in meditation, you can apply the skill to your work or personal life. Imagine how productive you’ll be if you can totally tune out distractions! Once you’re able to manage and control your inner speech, you’ll be able to say “no” to every mental/emotional distraction.
Try this technique, too: To promote concentration at work, break up tasks into shorter segments. Several 20-minute sessions of intense concentration will be far more productive than 8 hours of scattered attention and being only halfway present.
Also pay attention to your biorhythms. If you’re super-energized in the morning, DIVE IN and get some serious work done, before your attention and energy start to wane. Leave the mundane tasks for later in the afternoon when you’re tired. In other words, leave distractions like email, phone calls, even music and personal conversations, for later.
Put your frustrating inability to concentrate behind you as you learn the mental mastery you need to keep your mind from wandering. Meditation can be the key to success in every area of your life. When you improve your ability to concentrate, the quality of your learning, and the quality of your work, will increase dramatically.
