Sometime I forget where my cell phone charger kept or whether I lock my bike or answer an important mail. Yes I want to tell about absent minded. Do you not able to finish a task you start. Any external factors distracted you means absent minded?

But don’t feel bad, this is natural fact. Being absent minded is not mean to forgetfulness. May be you are preoccupied therefore this inattentive happened.

Long back I had read an article on fight with absent minded at Times of India. It was fantastic and effective way mention. I am sharing  with you the summary which may help you to avoid absent minded.

Stop depending too much on technology:

Do you take longer time to recall a restaurant or singer name you like? Ultimately you take your smart phone and search on Google to find the answer instead.

“There’s research to show these technologies are changing the shape of our brains, and the way they function,” says Patrick Fagan, an associate lecturer in Consumer Psychology at Goldsmiths University.

Occupational psychologist Suzanne Guest says, “I recommend people turn off their email alerts: only check your inbox three or four times a day and give them your full attention, rather than being constantly distracted.”

Incorporate some exercise or meditation  in your daily routine.

You may wonder how exercise can help you to fight with absent minded. But a study by the University of Georgia found that doing as little as 20 minutes of aerobic exercise a day is enough to improve mental function. You must try some meditation today .


“Physical exercise has a great effect on your cognition: it keeps your body healthy and improves circulation, which means your brain is able to get fresh oxygen more quickly,” says cognitive neuro-psychologist Dr Ashok Jansari.

Swedish researchers discovered that the anti-depressive effect of running is associated with improvements in the area of the brain responsible for learning and memory.

Be sociable:

A study from PLOS Medicine has shown that people who are lonely are more than twice as likely to develop dementia. Hanging out with your favorite friend is the way of improving your brain power.

Socializing is mentally stimulating and promotes cognitive functions. Reasoning, intuition, thinking, and feeling – all of which help create a reserve of brain cells. These functions encourage the formation of new connections in the brain.

Play some real games:

You may find plenty of apps which claim to increase and boost memory power. But in reality it doesn’t work at all.

On 2014, there were 73 leading psychologists and neuro-scientists signed an open letter claiming the games were based on ‘exaggerated and misleading claims’. Rather than improving cognitive wellness, they may actually worsen brain health by making the player less physically and socially active.

A better and cheaper alternative are games like chess or Scrabble, which is great for improving your vocabulary. Abstract or rare words are stored separately from common words in the brain, and without regular use, these areas can wither away in older people.


Learn to play an instrument:

“Music has a really profound effect on the mind because it taps into an older, more primitive part of the brain,” says Dr Jansari.

Learning of play an instrument effect your verbal and visual skills. Kids who play an instrument have higher IQs.  While older musicians score higher on cognitive tests and are more capable of dealing with the challenges of ageing, a study by Emory University shows.
If you’re not musical, then learning a new language can have a similarly positive effect on the brain – a study from the University of Edinburgh shows that it can actually delay the onset of dementia by several years.            – Daily Mirror
