The question that I’m often asked by adults , teenagers and children is “ Which part of my brain dies the concentrating?” . The answer is that concentration is a highly complex function of the entire brain and body. To simplify the explanation I draw a quick outline of the brain and the head explaining that when we are stressed , upset, frightened or under pressure we often feel like we can’t think and at that time the resources if your brain get focused into the back of your head, brain stem and you tend to react( or over react) .
When you are emotional or wound up about something, your hormones NST be flying high or low and you either want to take action or rib seat from situations. In this car your brain will rarely cooperate when you want to concentrate for more than a few seconds .
When you are calm, relaxed and feel safe and secure the resources move into your logical and feasting centres that will give you full access to your natural ability to concentrate. When thus area is fully resources with blood supply, oxygen and the good brain foods then you are ready, willing and able to start concentrating and stay concentrating for as long as the resources are available.
You don’t lose interest in the topic (as some think) but there is not enough fuel for the brain cells to stay working in this area of your brain so your concentration is broken and then your mind drifts to other less taxing thoughts.
In my Concentration Made Easy Blueprint I show you what to do before you want to concentrate and dimple strategies to recover your concentration when it slips away .
Taking control over your own ability to concentrate is not just worthwhile but can be life changing !
