It has become so easy to get distracted from our work.  There are endless social media accounts, people to talk to, emails to send, and more tasks that crowd our brain.  A recent study even found that some students can’t concentrate on homework for more than two minutes without reaching for their devices.  Technology use can definitely take up a significant portion of time, but there are other sources of distractions depending on the setting.  Many students day dream in class, stare off into space, or thing about future challenges instead of focusing on the here and now.  Our days are filled with countless interruptions that derail our train of thought.  Even though some claim to be excellent multitaskers, this strategy is very taxing on the brain, and makes it difficult to refocus on each assignment that must be completed.  This video is here to show you that you are not alone in your struggle to stay focused on important projects.  While you’re laughing about how relatable this video is, try to decide what a person like him or you could control in order to improve concentration.
