can't concentrate - September 18th 2010, 04:55 PM

i'm trying my hardest, but i just can't concentrate. i find myself just sitting in bed, or watching pointless videos to try to at least do something. i think part of it is depression, b/c i just have no will power to actually get up and do anything. the only problem is i'm a freshman in college, and i have prelims coming up next week and the next few weeks. i need to force myself to do something, but i can't. anyone have any ideas?

and i'm seeing a med doctor three weeks from now, but what can i do until then?

I know how you feel. Try mixing something you like with whatever you need to do. I hate doing homework and never feel motivated enough so I started to listen to my favorite songs while doing homework. HUGE difference. Now I don't mind because I know that it's actually enjoyable. And good luck on your prelims!

How cruel is the golden rule?

Hey there,

I think I can relate to you, hard to concentrate, etc. Maybe you could find some 'Dance' type songs...and dance to them. It works for me, and it often lifts up my spirits. Sometimes I feel really down and an hour later I am dancing in my bedroom to 'We speak no americano!' lol. Dancing randomly really helps get me motivated, Why not give it a go?

Hope this is useful
