Have you explored meditating?
on the assumption that it is a problem of a person being ‘scatter-brained’ and not anything more sinister, I find it helpful if I add to any physical exercise a task that requires inward direction.
For example, just cuing to lift on an inhale count of 2, hold for one and exhale on a count of 4 while lowering can help people concentrate.
Hello Martina Johnson,
I agree with the others; you need to know the person in order to engage better.
Generally speaking, doing a simple yoga pose to concentrate on breathing may relax someone enough to concentrate more. This can be done in the easy seated or corpse pose.
You may also try to encourage living in the moment; be fully present where you are now.
Many, many of life’s experiences come into play here.
