Hello and welcome to ExamPundit. The power to concentrate was the most important thing. Living without this power would be like opening one’s eyes without seeing anything. A lot of our aspirants have mailed us regarding lack of concentration while preparing for IBPS, SBI or Other exams.
A man himself can be in charge of his mind. The strength of his mind can be expressed through concentration or I must say the ability to focus. Since time immemorial, it has become imperative to work on the mind in order to achieve targets. A scattered mind set will lead you to no good.
There are factors responsible for scattered mind set and each and every of the factor can be mitigated accordingly. Mental exercises prove to be the most beneficial. Be it a chess grandmaster or a renowned cricketer everyone needs to exercise their minds to help it work to its full potential.
Let’s elaborate three important exercises of the mind
1) Strengthen concentration: Think about an object in your mind. It should be simple to imagine. Like a pen or lemon or the face of your pet. This should be done twice a day and the duration should be 5 to 10 min. The object chosen should be such that there is no trouble picturing it. Do it without losing focus of the sight.
At the beginning it will be way difficult to concentrate but with time it will become easier. There will be random thoughts pooping in your mind. All you can do is avoid these thoughts from pulling you and instead push them out and keep focusing. This will improve your concentration at enormous amounts.
2) Empty your mind: Emptying your mind is actually a myth. It really doesn’t happen completely. All you can do is keep your thoughts at bay. It is a common phenomenon to have any thoughts hovering your mind to the extent of you forgetting the important tasks of the day. In such case, make a list. A list of things you have to do without forgetting. You can easily get them done then.
You can also make a list of things bothering you and write down when you will deal with it. Write down the time and date to deal with the issue. In that way you can focus on your work and get it done peacefully.
3) Visualize for practice: Before doing a task or completing a work try visualsing it. Visualize how you will do it. Visualizing helps to keep one balanced, calm and focused to be precise. The ability to accomplish a task mentally over physically again and again is favourable. Like Delivering a shot in tennis or giving a speech after winning something or making a plan of a building ,etc. The more it is done the better one gets at the physical activity.
Practice makes one perfect. Through the guidelines described above one can strengthen the mind and overcome any hurdle to achieve their goals.
