About Attention Span Training Drills & Attention Span Mental Exercises

Mental exercises are effective in improving attention span by challenging the brain to focus and concentrate on specific tasks in unique and challenging ways.

This process helps strengthen, lengthen, and multiply connections between existing brain cells while also cultivaing the creation of new brain cells in a process called Neurogenesis.

Why You Should Train Your Attention Span.

Consistent practice of unique, challenging mental effort can include activities such as:

BEWARE Using Digital Electronics and 'Brain Training Games' for Attention Span!

Please be very careful in your research of any digital app or software claiming to give you a better Attention Span as follows because digital gaming software is fundamentally designed to attract and hold your Attention by its very nature and absolutely skews your results as a result. 

What good is making progress on a digital Brain Training Game when a lot of the reason is because your central nervous system finds attraction in it? Your objection is to overcome distraction, not attraction.

OF COURSE your score will increase because you're enjoying yourself and receiving addictively-pleasurable chemical drips while being pyschologically programmed to enjoy and keep playing the game.

Your skills at playing the game increase, but not your practical, real-world Attention Span because you are not being trained to overcome the feelings and emotions and compelling impulses you experience while out in your daily environment that cause so much distraction. Save yourself money and frustation as follows:

  1. If the brain game you train with is in the least bit interesting, you've got a problem. The pretty graphics, the excitement you feel, pleasure at accomplishing a task - ALL OF THIS IS A SERIOUS INFLUENCE PROBLEM that corrupts any honesty in the tool. So, make sure any app has some kind of documentation that its user interface is intentionally designed to not attract and hold your Attention, nor should it have any undue sensory impact that would arouse your interest.
  2. Verify 'Cross-transfer!' If you playing that brain game isn't directly transferrable to the real world that you have to live in - the classroom, the boardroom, the livingroom, the playing field - whatever - then it's a waste of time and money, and time is worth far more.

    You want them to prove to you how your turning over your Attention to their product will help you master Attention Control WITHOUT using their product. If the only time you can perform their 'focus task' is while using their tools, and the tool does not tell you how to take that and transfer it to real life, then it's completely useless to you.

    With so many controversial studies coming out showing Brain Training Game results claims to be full of hot air, you're better off researching any products for bad press, or connections to any researchers who are under the microscope for promoting bad science (there's a lot of it over the past couple decades). Researchers who put out weak or boastfully fales claims that wind up in court still find a way to stay on the job and in the training industry, shamelessly.
  3. Trust no degital training products company that's been mentioned in the news when it comes to their claims. Make sure they can prove it, because, unfortunately, Science itself may be for the pure of heart, but Product Development and Sales is not Science, and the profit motive corrupts even the brightest among us to turn them into willing liars, as it always has.

How to Use Training Drills in Boosting the Span of Your Attention.

Attention is not just about being able to focus without distraction, but requires effective management of different attentional elements, which can be strengthened with purposeful exercise, rest, and recovery. Strengthening attention is comparable to strengthening physical muscles, and mental exercises can help achieve this. For this purpose, we are providing you a boatload of unique, neurogenesis-enhancing practice techniques as follows:

Build Your Attention Training Routine

As with any habit, there are some basic rules you can follow to help make sure you can train with consistency to maximize both the speed and momentum of your progress. This brings to mind a wise instruction taught by Earl Nightgale and Brian Tracy, which is the value of doing a little each day to improve a particular skill. Over time, the sheer mass of knowledge you accumulate by concentrating on that skill can put you among the world's experts. 

We must all start somewhere, though, and the smallest, easiest steps are the best way for you to start your new Attention Span Training lifestyle.

  • Start small and build up gradually. Begin with just a few minutes a day and gradually increase the duration over time.
  • Prioritize your practice and make it a non-negotiable part of your daily routine.
  • Find mental exercise training drills that resonate with you and that you enjoy.
  • Break it up, though, with techniques that you don't particularly care for so that you challenge yourself more.
  • Create a designated space for your practice that is quiet and free from distractions.
  • Use a tracking method to monitor and celebrate your progress.
  • Try different times of the day to meditate and find what works best for you.
  • If you miss a day, don't beat yourself up. Just get back on track the next day.
  • Join a group or community of meditators for support and accountability.
  • Experiment with different techniques and teachers to keep your practice fresh and interesting.
  • Remember that meditation is a journey and that it's normal to have ups and downs along the way. Stick with it, and you will reap the benefits.

Track Your Attention Span Growth and Performance.

As you do your daily mental exercise training, you can find motivation and quicken your progress by tracking your productivity, efficiency, and gains.

Tracking can be done by hand using paper and pencil or pen in a notebook, using a writing pad.

Additionally, you can monitor your progress by keeping a journal of your daily mental exercises, noting any changes in your memory, concentration, and focus.

You can also do it digitally using a tracking app, goals, app, or habit-building software.

You can also set goals and measure your progress towards them by tracking the time it takes to complete certain exercises or tasks.

Some excellent elements of training to pay attention may include:

  • Date of the training session
  • Time of the training session
  • Duration of the training session (expected, or adjusted afterward)
  • Name of the Mental Exercise, Drill, Method, or Task
  • Duration of effort in each instant or repetition
  • Note any difficulties and any ideas on approaching them in the next session
  • Note any good news that you perceive
  • Note any helpful personal observations about the experience

    Remember to stay consistent with your mental exercises and track your progress regularly to see improvements over time.
