How’s it going? This is Luis Angel, your memory coach with AE Mind!
In Chapter 7 of my Better Memory Now Book, I talk about how as I was going through my journey of discovering how to fix my memory problems, I discovered that I needed to first cure my inability to focus on the tasks at hand. My mind would always wander off and this led me to being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder ( ADD / ADHD ). The doctors and psychologist gave me amphetamine based drugs such as Adderall and also methylphenidate based drugs such as Ritalin. These have a similar chemical composition as methamphetamine which in essence, it is Speed. I didn’t like taking that; so I sought out a natural fix for my focus, attention, and concentration problems.
Here are the three things that I started to Focus on in order to improve my ability to Focus:
1. Diet – Health. I started to put more water based and natural foods into my body. Fruits and Vegetables became a staple to my well-being. I started to eat more berries which are rich in antioxidants, flax seed oil which has omega 3 fatty acids and support optimal brain function, and bananas which have potassium and supports better neuron brain cell communication.
2. Meditation. I started to practice clear mind and present mind meditation. This helped me to stay focused for longer periods of time outside of my meditation sessions.
3. Memory training. Incorporating a regular routine to practice memory boosting and brain enhancing activities such as memorizing cards and long numbers helped me to improve my ability to focus and concentrate.
Let me know what are some of the strategies that you implement in your life to help you naturally stay focused.
