There is nothing more frustrating than when you sit down at your table to study with the most sincere of intentions and instead of being able to finish the task at hand you find your thoughts wandering.However,there are certain techniques that you can  use to enhance your concentration. “Your concentration level depends upon various factor”, says Samuel Gosh, a social counselor . “In order to develop your concentration span,it is necessary to examine various facets of your physical and internal environment,” she adds.
To begin with one should attempt to create the physical environment that is conducive to focused thought .Whether it is radio,TV or your noisy neighbors,identify the factors that make it difficult for you to focus. For instance,if you live in a very noisy neighborhood, you could try to plan to study hours in a nearby library.

….disagrees with the notion that people can concentrate or study in an environment with distractions like a loud television(as in my case) ,blaring music etc. “If you are distracted when you are attempting to focus,your attention and retention powers do not work at optimum levels,””not more than two of your senses should be activated at the same time,”What that means is that music that sets your feet tapping is not ideal accompaniment to your books.
Also do not place your study table or desk in front of the window
.”While there is no cure for a mind that wants to wander, one should try to and provide as little stimulus as possible.Looking out of a window when you are trying to concentrate will invariably send your mind on a tangent.”
The second important thing, she says, is to establish goals for oneself instead of general target and then, trying to accomplish what you can in a haphazard fashion.It is very important to decide what you have to finish in a given span of time. The human mind recognizes fixed goals and targets and appreciates schedules more than random thoughts. Once your thoughts and goals are in line, a focused system will follow.
Recommends that your schedule into study and recreation hours.When you study choose a mix of subjects that you and dislike and save the former for the last so that you have something to look forward to. For instance, you enjoy verbal skill tests more than mathematical problems then finish maths first(as in eat your frog first!! :P). Not only will you find your self working harder, you will have a sense of achievement when you wind up.
Try not to sit for more than 40 minutes a sketch.take a very short break to make a cup of tea or listen to a song (My favorite thing to do) and sit down again (:[). Under no cicumstances, should one sit for more than one and a half hours.Short breaks build your concentration and refresh your mind. However, be careful not to overdo the relaxation (I must follow it <—-). It may have undesired effects(Oh yes! they do).
More than anything else,do not get disheartened. Concentration is merely a matter of disciplining the mind. It comes with practice and patience and does not take very long to become a habit for life.

I suddenly feel frustrated and angry today …. reason you ask? i don’t know whats the reason but i know one thing for a fact and that is i am either going to break something or i am going to break something

It is possible that while you are reading this you may think whats wrong with this girl? why would she think we give a crap about what she thinks and how she is feeling? and i completely get it , seriously  i am not writing this blog for anyone to read , i am writing it just because i am writing it. I do not know how long this blog will go because i haven’t decided what i am going to write about!! i am just typing because it is making me feel better (probably because i am hitting keys pretty hard , and pretending that  am beating the crap out of something)

The extract that is posted above i wrote it a while ago and today while i was going through my draft i saw it.  Its felt so silly and stupid to ready that , yet i am posting it today. WHY?(i am not drunk, if you guessed that you are wrong) . Because it exposes a very critical thing , it questions several believes and philosophies that we have accepted and some that we have ignored either because we are ignorant or we have lack of understanding or both!!

now that i think of that day , i cant find one reason that could have frustrated me or made me angry , if it was not something ‘wordly’ what was it? was my soul troubled? were negative vibes present near me? i cant think rationally .. Have you ever experienced such a thing

P.S. I Have not gone barmy and i am not drunk..but frustrated because i cant find a logical explanation why was i frustrated that day… and sorry if i frustrated you by being frustrated about my frustration
