I can't concentrate!

2 years, 9 months ago

Lately, and throughout my life, I have had a hard time concentration on things when i need to. My mind just constantly jumps around, sometimes its alot fo fun, and sometimes it is terrible.

Has anyone experienced this? and if so, what are some things i can do to try to keep my mind from jumping around so much.

I know it is possible to train my brain it just hasnt been easy lately.

I seriously can’t focus on anything right now! im not worried about it just starting to get frustrated

@beyond LOL “Make sure it’s something you SHOULD do, because if it’s something you SHOULDN’T do people will call it good sense instead and you won’t get any credit.”

@ilooklikeawaterbottle, “concentration” is one of many many many frames of consciousness and this society just wants to milk it out of you. There’s no reason to concentrate. Let go and let the ride flow.

See, for me, it’s that I just can’t concentrate on crap that I am “supposed” to concentrate on (school, job, responsibilities). I don’t like NOT do those things, but I put in as little effort as possible to maintain a level I’m ok with (B- average in school, I work fast food, I take on as little as possible).

I sometimes wish i could be motivated to do all of these stupid things that I don’t like, but I just can’t seem to get that air about me. I can only hope to maybe one day find something that I actually want to do, so that I can finally be motivated to do something productive too.
