Increase activity and decrease recreational screen time
According to Temple Grandin, a famous novelist of the bestseller ‘Thinking in Pictures’, the more the people indulge in new activities and habits, the more the attention span duration. The author further states that with the production of too many drugs in the society, people invariably lean closer to these stimulants. Moreover, with people being so exposed to technology-advanced gadgets, a lot of people believe that watching online shows, playing video games, or browsing the internet can act as positive stressbusters. However, this is not true! People should rather inculcate new habits or indulge in new activities in order to boost their memory and attention.
On the other hand, for people who are interested in adopting a clear structure or format for improving their attention span, neurofeedback brain training is ideal. In general, children who are victims of ADHD, tend to have a higher voltage in the theta or slower brain waves in the beta. While theta waves are associated with drowsiness, beta waves involve action-based activities or abilities for quick solving. This method is highly recommended for children as they may not know how to improve their attention span on their own.
