In this social life everyday with lots of boundaries, limitations and problems, I am unable to concentrate. Can you please advise me on how to concentrate and be focused towards the goal of my life?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

So, you have the desire to concentrate. This itself is good, you are already focused. You are aware that you want to be focused and you are aware you are getting distracted, that means you are focused. Don’t doubt that, okay?!

And to increase that focus, what you are doing is the perfect thing – meditation, pranayama and satsang. Already the focus keeps coming.

Also observe what is distracting you too much. You are watching too many movies, isn’t it?!

That’s what you do, right?

(Ans – Yes)

When you watch too many movies the mind is bombarded with so many impressions and so the mind feels so confused. It becomes like a habit to watch movies. So cut down on movies for one week.

When you come back so tired from work, take a good sleep.
