Serotonin is a chemical nerve our cells produce that helps to reduce depression, anxiety and have effect on our focus on what we want to do. When you lose focus in NEET preparation, there’s a big chance that your serotonin activity is low. That’s why you are giving into short-term pleasures and distractions.
A Simple Mind Exercise to Stay Focused for NEET
To improve your focus and attention for NEET, you need to boost your serotonin activity. A simple mind exercise can increase your serotonin level.
Think About Past Success and Happiness
Thinking about past success and happiness stimulates the production of serotonin. All you need to do is remember positive events that happened in the past. It can be anything, from childhood to school, when you achieved something, big or small, that brought you happiness.
When serotonin goes up, your focus goes up. The beauty of this exercise is that you can do it any time and any place. According to Alex Korb, a neuroscientist at UCLA.
“All you need to do [to increase serotonin levels] is remember positive events that have happened in your life. This simple act increases serotonin production in the anterior cingulate cortex, which is a region just behind the prefrontal cortex that controls attention.”
Whenever you are not able to focus in your NEET preparation, the first thing to do is to acknowledge that it’s a problem that needs a solution. Think about what clearing NEET will do to your life and future. Don’t get distracted . Stay focused to achieve your goals.
