I’ve been having a problem for a while now, and it’s pretty hard to get rid of it. I’m required to read a lot all the time for college, and the reading is seriously flat out boring (history of how english came to be in the classrooms and such). I find myself drifting my mind’s thinking to lifting and my nutrition and stuff.
It’s not until like 2 pages later that I realize I haven’t comprehended a single thing I just read, and it’s near impossible to get it back after that. It’s not just boring stuff that I have a hard time focusing on either, it’s just about anything that’s not related to exercise or nutrition. In a way I almost feel bad that I’m not majoring in exercise and nutrition or something, because it seems to be seriously the only two things that I can keep my mind focused on.
Just like today in class we were asking each other what books we enjoyed the most, everyone talking about how many books they loved, and all I could say is that I prefer reading articles to books (hence, articles on this webpage).
THE GOOD NEWS, I do believe someone can change how they think about things and how they enjoy stuff. I want to learn to enjoy reading and learn to KEEP MY FOCUS ON WHAT IT IS I’M DOING AT THE TIME!! It’s so hard for me personally, like even after I take Spike, I am just more focused on thinking about exercise and nutrition.
Anyone else have this problem with keeping focused on the task at hand? I swear if it’s not something involving physical involvement, I am never there mentally.
