Better concentration and focus makes life easier and more productive, and anyone can make it happen. Use these simple-to-do skills and lifestyle changes.

Stop Multitasking
One of the worst things you can do for your concentration and focus is to multitask.You don’t actually do several things at once, your brain quickly toggles back and forth between tasks.

Find Your Perfect Sound Environment
Not everyone responds the same to sound..Some people need complete silence while others concentrate better in the buzz of their favorite coffee shop.

Eat Right for Your Brain
To eat the right food for your brain, keep these simple principles in mind. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.They are high in vitamins, antioxidants, and phytonutrients your brain needs.

Physical exercise also boosts dopamine production.
You don’t need strenuous exercise to get brain-boosting benefits.Taking walks, or doing gentle, no-impact exercises like yoga, tai chi, or qi gong all provide powerful mind-body benefits.

Blast Stress, Increase Concentration with Meditation
If you’ve ever been under the gun to get an assignment done on time, you may have found that stress can improve concentration and focus for short periods of time due to a burst of adrenaline.

Get Enough Sleep
If you didn’t get enough sleep last night or suffer with low-level chronic lack of sleep, you’ll have a hard time concentrating.

Do Yoga
Doing yoga can boost your brain power even more than doing conventional aerobic exercise.Even one session of yoga significantly improves working memory and concentration.The top yoga poses for better concentration include the plow, the camel, the cobra, the tree, and the corpse pose.

Don’t Forget to Breathe
Your brain needs oxygen. Brain cells can live only a few minutes without it.Yet, counter productively, many people hold their breath while concentrating!
