Q & A Section – Yahoo! Answers: Improve Concentration When Reading

Charles asks…

How do I improve my concentration when reading?

When I try to read books its really hard to stay focused even when I find the topic interesting. I would like to be able to sit down and get a good study session in whenever I need to but for some reason I just can’t do it. Is there anything I can do to help this?

admin answers:

When you read, your eyes subconsciously jump around the page and distract you. Try using an index card to ensure that you only read one line at a time.

Do you drink Alto of caffeine? If so then you may be a caffeine addict and need it to focus. But if not than maybe try a Coffee. : )

George asks…

How to improve my reading comprehension and concentration?

The title says it.. I know what I’m doing wrong but I can’t help it. My mind wanders while I read. It even wanders by thinking how its wandering! I can’t block out, even the slightest of noises either.. even wind, house settling.. etc. When I read I have to read a sentence 4-6 times before I understand it.

admin answers:

Im not a professional and so don’t mind if my answer sounds a little crazy to you but i suggest try not thinking too much before you start reading. When i have difficulty in concentrating i usually listen to some songs on my ipod so that i can block out the other noises, and i try selecting songs that i know very well so that i dont get distracted by it. You could also try reading at a time when there is no noise at all or when the house is empty. As i told you my suggestions might sound a little crazy to you. I hope this helps :D

Laura asks…

How can I improve my reading speed during studies as I keep losing concentration when I don’t understand?

admin answers:

Speed reading is the formal way to learn to read faster and keep the concentration. I’ve mentioned some tips on it in a previous answer, and also recommended a good course on it:

Maria asks…

Looking for ideas on improving my concentration when reading. I tend to move around alot. Ideas?

I notice that when im reading i tend to do things with my hands while i read and have trouble staying still. I was thinking about doing something while reading, like using a stress ball or something similar, to keep myself focused. Im curious to know of methods that have worked for people like myself. Thank you
