As you go closer to this light, your light will come to you faster. Similarly your mind and mind also have infinite power, but it dissipates in all directions. The mind thinks about different things at the same time, rather than thinking deeply or focusing on any one subject. Therefore, the average mind does not make full use of its power. This is known as our concentration.

School going children mostly say that they understand things but do not remember or forget quickly and as a school counselor, we have to see this common problem. So let us know what are the reasons which cause problems in the concentration level of children or youth.

 Reasons of lack of concentration and focus in students – due to lack of concentration

  1. Body ache

If we are sitting and studying, if there is pain or injury in any part of our body, then there is a lot of problem in concentrating the mind because we constantly think about the same.

  1. Environment

Things around us also dissolve concentration many times, such as when you sit reading and suddenly someone tells you work. Or there is a lot of noise in the neighborhood or any of your favorite films are coming on TV, in such a situation it is very difficult to concentrate.

This was some common problem that happens to everyone. Apart from this, everyone has their own problems. Let us now tell you about some such exercises, by which you can concentrate your mind to some extent.

This is a classical exercise which has been used for a long time. In this we have to sit on a chair for some time, it is not so easy.

This helps us a lot in concentrating the mind.

This exercise is done in two ways, the first way is to sit in a chair and raise your hand to the front and shoulders and focus on your fingers. Do this as long as you feel comfortable then repeat the same action with the other hand. The concentration level can be increased by doing this exercise 15 to 20 minutes daily.

The other way is to fill the glass in your hand with water and try to make the water move at least and then do the same with the other hand.

The purpose of doing both these exercises is that we can control our movements and unnecessary movements can be controlled.
