"Your thoughts are scattered; your mind jumps from one thing to another like a monkey. It helps to learn and to practise concentration strategies, to harness your monkey mind, so that it works at your will."
I think I'm going to change the title of this blog to, "Hey you! Pay Attention!" what with all the concentration-related posts I've had of late. Must be somthing going on in my life (yeah, for like the last 10 years!). Today brings us a really neat Student's Guide to Concentration from the University
of Kent in the UK. Going well beyond the advice to just pay more attention, this guide explains some of the reasons concentration will wane, and offers a lot of good suggestions for improving study habits. Of course this is perfectly relevant for the distance student who will often be studying in the home environment.
