How does concentration and attention work in the brain?

The question is somewhat general.

For example, a neurobiological background, or a conscious principle to apply. ?


You always concentrate when you give something, or someone’s attention.This happens on its own. Whether you like it or not.

A fact that should be made aware.Otherwise, attention and concentration may happen arbitrarily, rather than being used in a targeted manner.

This is because our spectrum of perception is not able to grasp the environment in its entirety.Therefore, like these, we can only experience distorted, by means of the constitution of our perceptual filters.

If you walk around the city in a group, one of them will only see cars, while now you know where you’re going to get a discount when you go shopping tomorrow.In the lords of creation there are also some who see everywhere only women. It should also happen.

So I heard:

Some see only the plight of the homeless, other graffiti, architecture, etc.

For everyone, the environment looks a bit different, because only certain things, or people, can be considered/can be paid attention.

When you focus, consciously, or unconsciously on something, you automatically exclude other perceptions.

For example, if something, or someone really annoys you, it’s usually only because you give much of your attention to the event or the person and allow the influence.

In short, if, from today, I were to focus only on the crap that people do to other people on a daily basis, I would inevitably develop depression, in the short or long term.

As it is in our education system, orour culture is not customary in teaching the way we deal with the ‘spirit’, most of them get stuck in unconscious structures and increasingly assume that they were born in this way.

So the first step is to recognize the unconscious.Unconsciously, I define the moment when you react to an event, or a person – that is, each time in the same way, or in a similar way.

It starts to rain, for example, and immediately you react with the simple thought: “What a terrible weather.”

The weather isnot “terrible.”

It’s how it is.

Completely neutral.

Only your thought makes it “terrible” and triggers a negative emotion in you.

You probably often experienced at a young age that reference persons reacted in the same way and unconsciously adopted the behavior.

Once you’ve realized this for the first time, you’ll react the same way next time, but after that you should realize for the first time that you haven’t thought for a second about what you said, thought and felt, but just triggered your reaction from the outside Was.

If this subsequent conscious-becoming often starts, you may one day be able to enjoy being able to concentrate fully on how beautiful a rain shower on the skin, respectively.Can feel on the face. :

The key word is mindfulness.Determine who you want to be, what influence stake should have on your person, or with which you want to “burden” yourself.

This will enable you to re-gestify your perceptual filters in the long run, so that you only focus your attention on what is really important to you.

Make it clear again and again that it is not possible to realize everything.That it’s up to you, which gets some space in your reality.

If you’re having trouble getting out of old perceptual filters, there’s an easy way to counteract that.

Just direct your attention back into the body.

Try to feel your hands first.So long, until there is only a feeling of “hand”.

Try to feel your feet now.If the feeling hasn’t already set off on its own.

Until then there is only a feeling of “foot” and “hand”.

The only point behind it is to take your mind’s attention away so that it “tortures” you less for the moment.

It is a simple meditation exercise that you can really practice anywhere.

There are many techniques that promise you to get into a meditative state.The crux of the matter is that they always imply the fact that you first need to be able to do something specific, that in the future will enable you to reach such a state.

A fatal fallacy.

The future and the past are thought constructs that the mind uses to bring events into a meaningful temporal relation to each other.

Consequently, the hard-working thoughts are either related to the future, or to the past, but rarely really to the now.

But we would like to be present in the now.

This is only possible here and now.You don’t need to know anything, to be able to do nothing, all you have to do is direct your attention back into the body. Because this is anchored in the present moment.

This will make it easier for you to be mindful of yourself.

You will see that over time you will be able to concentrate on important things with all your attention, in your opinion.

Without being constantly distracted by unconscious reactions to external situations.
