As a person with ADHD, concentrating on stuff has always been difficult for me. My mind keeps jumping from one thought to another throughout my waking hours. Although this helps me multitask and come up with new ideas, sometimes, this is not a desirable state of mind. It is difficult when I have to sit down and concentrate on one task, like studying for an examination or completing a work deadline. Here are 15 tips that helped me and other people with ADHD (from r/adhdwomen) concentrate better:
1.Imagine someone watching you work and you showing off how much you can get done/how well you work.
2.Bribe yourself with a small treat.
3.Be your own parent.
4.Put up a mirror to check on yourself.
5.Get someone to work in the same room as you.
6.Taking a walk.
7.Play music or a podcast while working.
8.Add trivial things to get your daily task started.
9.Listen to your body.
10.Use "study with me" or "work with me" videos.
11.Put your phone away.
12.Maintain a work-life balance.
13.Making detailed to-do lists.
14.Make yourself as comfortable as possible.
15.Write down your intrusive thoughts.
