Physical comfort can play an important role in an individual’s capacity to sustain attention.

Divide a Big Task into Small Tasks

Studying an entire chapter in one go is quite difficult for a child. A big chapter requires too much concentration and discipline, so it would be a good idea to divide it into smaller tasks. This is not just for studies but for household chores as well. Doing small projects, which lead to the completion of a big project, give the feeling of progress and movement, making it easier to focus. A small task seems easier to carry through.

Eat healthy

Sweets, chocolates, ice-creams and other junk food might be tempting but makes your mind restless and body lethargic. And naturally, your mind is everywhere except your books. Eating junk food or food rich in sugar makes a child sluggish while food rich in proteins such as almonds, eggs and lean meat have the ability to raise awareness and increase concentration levels.
