Since my mother-in-law died unexpectedly this spring, I have been having a real problem with lack of concentration.
I’m sure it hasn’t been helped by a string of other events that have been demanding time and attention…
I find myself starting something, having something else pop into my head that I need to attend to, hopping over to that – and maybe something else – or two somethings else – before getting back to what I was doing in the first place.
I’m sure it isn’t very efficient…
I realize part of it is the result of my seeming inability to sleep consistently. And the fact that there is just a lot to do on a lot of different fronts.
I think part of it, though, is that it is genuinely harder to concentrate for extended periods of time.
My brain gets tired.
I find myself playing mindless games on the computer while the television is on in the evening. Often, the television isn’t demanding too much concentration in and of itself. I used to use part of evening TV time to visit and comment on other blogs, but I can’t seem to do it anymore.
It takes too much concentration.
Have I mentioned that I’m having a problem with concentration lately?
