Causes your Concentration Difficult

Concentration is an easy word to pronounce, but difficult to implement. Each person must have experienced situations where it is difficult to concentrate. This condition can happen to anyone regardless of age status. Young and old alike can experience it. Actually, what caused it, here are some reasons why your mind is easy floating along the advice of experts:

1. Low hormone levels

The mind is easily dispersed signals that you may be deficient in vitamins or hormones, particularly if accompanied by unusual fatigue. Dr Orford, Expert Staff of the Mayo Clinic, Preventive Medicine Division, in Scottsdale said, "If there is a deficiency in thyroid hormones, so it slows down your metabolism, thereby reducing blood flow and function of cells in different parts of the brain."

Suggestion: Make an appointment with your doctor to simply consult. After that, make a list every time there is a change of health problems to help detect the source of problems related to concentration problems.

2. Hormones have been damaged

Kimberly Pearson, MD, a psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital Center, Women's Mental Health stated that it is difficult to concentrate is the most common complaint of women experiencing perimenopause.

Tip: If other signs pointing to the perimenopause (hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness), to consider short-term hormone replacement therapy.

"Most women who've done it feels like to get back his memory," he said.

3. Influence of drugs

Some medications such as anti-depressants can affect your mood (mood) and concentration when you decide to stop taking them. Antihistamines, for example, sedatives can trigger drowsiness long enough.

Suggestion: Write down all the medications you're taking and ask your doctor, whether any of the medicines that can cause concentration problems.

4. Cigarette

Besides damaging the general health, the effects of smoking can also affect your concentration power. The more and longer you smoke, gray matter in the brain more quickly lost. In fact, when trying to quit smoking, you will have trouble concentrating, said Christopher Kahler, Ph.D., of Brown University.

"This is a common complaint smokers. But, you will be getting more benefit psychologically if you stop smoking," he said.

Tip: The more happy you feel when trying to quit, the more likely you are to succeed, says Kahler. The point is how you can do to improve mood (mood).

5. Unhealthy eating

What you eat have a major impact on mental clarity, said Laura Middleton, PhD, assistant professor of kinesiology at the University of Waterloo in Ontario. Poor eating habits increase the risk of disease, such as obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol, and other diseases that can impair cognitive function and lead to obesity, making it more difficult to stay active, which is important for brain health.

Advice: "If it's good for the heart and cardiovascular system, then it is also good for the brain," said Middleton, who advised to adhere to the principles of the Mediterranean diet (a diet high in fish, vegetables, and low in saturated fats and processed foods).

6. Busy

The work is sedentary all day behind a desk or behind the wheel of a car should not be considered good. The work tends to persist and do not involve physical activity can affect your mind. In order to keep the mind sharp, you have to keep moving. Exercise can increase the production of substances that slow the formation of plaques triggers Alzheimer's disease.

"Need a few weeks to be able to feel the benefits. But, after that you will experience positive changes quickly," said Middleton.

Suggestions: Perform cardiovascular activity for 30 minutes with a period of 3-5 times a week. "If you can do it for an hour, that's good," said Middleton, who also urged to include weight training. Middleton and colleagues found evidence that by being active throughout the day can help keep your mind sharp.

7. Anxiety disorder

Excessive anxiety can cause you trouble concentrating. Because, with a restless mood, a person usually becomes hyper-vigilant with the surrounding environment.

Tip: If you can not concentrate because it was too worried, stop doing the job and do something fun to remove the tension in your head, says Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, PhD, professor of psychology department at Yale. Try to go for a walk, trying new recipes, or play with friends.
