How to Increase Attention Span

Nowadays our senses are bombarded from all directions by the constant information being thrown at us, and no one is truly immune. From the ubiquitous and relentless marketing campaigns that are part of our daily lives, to the always-on forms of digital entertainment, the competition for our limited amount of attention is fierce. Children are especially vulnerable to the onslaught of information, and their ability to deal with it all is crucial to their development. Making sure that your child is organized and properly equipped to effectively prioritize competing interests is essential to being an academic achiever and finding success in the real world. Below we'd like to pass along some tips on how you can increase your child's attention span:

Exercise

The benefits of regular exercise are many, both physical and mental. Study after study has shown that exercise plays an important role in both mood and mental functioning. The more exercise, the better the mood. And, exercise has been show to cause neurogenesis, or the growth of new neurons in the brain, which can expand our ability to reason and focus.

Memorization

It seems simple. But giving your child small responsibilities, for example, memorizing the grocery list, has been shown to go a long ways toward improving attention span. If your child is into sports, another idea might be to have them memorize the statistics of their favorite players from the Braves, Falcons, or Hawks.

Read

A great way to counteract the rapid-fire inundation of information we sometimes struggle to avoid, is by giving your child a novel to read--hopefully something that falls in line with his or her interests. Reading a book of considerable length is not a sprint but rather a marathon, and your child's attention span will benefit accordingly.
