HOW?! Drugs? Any tips, meditation or something? Going to
the gym?

Take up a dangerous sport. Fear of death or injury is a
great way of forcing yourself to concentrate.

Lemon smell- ie have a half cut lemon near you when you're
doing work. Lemon essence stimulates the hypothalamus and
increases memory power.

Studies done in Sicily show that when doing exams, pupils in
a lemon scented room remebered more and concentrated more
than those that were in a normal room.

Scent in general is a useful memory aid. Smell a particular
smell while revising and then take that scent into the exam
with you and it will help you remember (there was a study
done on this a couple of years back).

i'd need that too...

i can't concentrate on most things i do. thinking of
something different / daydreaming at random always seems
more interesting than working.

yea- it's all to do with the primal part of our brains when
we used to have a hightened sense of smell. There was a
direct link to smell and memory ie. the scent of a poo could
tell you what the animal had eaten etc. Today it is mainly
asource of nostalgia eg. a certain smell will conjure up
memories of the past.

Ceri- in this case though the lemon scent seems to have a
generalised memory boost. Perhaps also the sharpness of the
smell helps keep concentration up.

afterwards forever. and cardio

was this skytree? because... you misspelled remembered
and... by this logic, a room that does not smell like lemon
is abnormal? and who else can screw up this bad

I still think your first answer was the best.


have you ever thought about it in an analog sense? that if
our first answer does, actually tend to be our best, can we
get a slightly earlier answer? perhaps even just 0.02 better

the fucking nerve to attempt to entangle the concept of what
a "normal room" is and the smell of lemons. that's just
terrible science

* JUST SAY NO - if you wanna really do something you WILL
lose friends. You WILL need to tell them you are busy,
repeatedly, until they just stop phoning/texting you. Upside
is it will sort out who r ur good mates.
* tiny things like having to make food, go to the toilet
(yes) need to seem like utterly pointless distractions.
* find your ideal amount of sleep and dont try to do any
less.
* large amounts of caffeine is contraindicated; know your
peak amount
(tea is better than coffee; if you want to get speedy
do espressos and yellow grapefruit juice - the grapefruit
juice will effectively increase your caffeine level and also
counteract jitters. trufax.)
* drugs are not a particularly good idea
* just get the fuck on with it.

* you cannot concentrate if you have a "job". save up money
to live off, or sign on, or get a rich patron/ess. You need
secure living circumstances, and not to be thinking about
it.
* Rotating your sleeping hours 180° may be an idea, cos
then you can have breakfast with your friends which they
call dinner, then work uninterrupted for 12 hours, then
maybe have supper with them which they call breakfast, or
whatever....
(....but don't desynchronise from day/night cycle cos
that's a world of weirdness)
