Is there a way other than taking medicine to increase concentration?

Zape, it seems foolhardy to suggest extreme things like that, period, and especially without at least referencing study sources to support your strong views.

Hi Shiva, I listen to a lot of the concentration tracks on YouTube while I'm studying. I also put my phone on airplane mode and tell people that I'm studying so that the chances of getting interrupted are much lower. When I get up and find myself sidetracked, I ask myself, "does this need to be done right now over studying or am I seeking the happy serotonin release of completing one or twelve tiny tasks that are so far from urgent?"

Don't listen to zape if the meds help u then use them but be responsible

I didn't used them when I was at school cos I didn't know I have ADHD and I can't stop thinking where I might be now if I took them and graduate from high school with better grades

Wow zape .. any hard evidence on that ??? That’s the first negative comment I’ve seen for meds, however shiva you have to do what’s best for u, meds along with healthy diet and plenty of water and sleep ( I no it’s not always possible ) but it does all help xx

I have the same concern.

I found for studying I always needed to tidy up the space around me, needed perfect quiet, could never do it in front of a tv, and recently noticed getting off of Facebook was a huge step in the right direction.

Facebook was actually the worst. I would get anxiety while studying and my attention would shift to facebook. No good.
