Concentration comes from within. No amount of pressure will bring concentration. First try to concentrate in yourself. There are certain ways. Keep your eyes closed. Concentrate on your breathing for one minute on day 1 to 5. day 6 to 10 make it for 2 minutes. day 11-15 make it 3 minutes, and likewise slowly slowly bring the concentration timing to 15 minutes. Then practice 15 minutes concentration for 3 months. This is the best way to concentrate

concentrating on breathing is fine, but when you are meditating you need to concentrate on a specific object or chant something so that you are on it & don't keep loosing concentration, for the first a week do it for 5 mins & gradually increase 1 or 2 minutes as & when you feel like. At the same time like andyvish said you can also do breathing as it will also help you alot & gain your strength & concentration back

thank you for the advice, i will try from today itself, but another thing i did want to know is changing the interests frequently, nothing is conplete, my i nterests change week by week, so in most cases they are just stealing my valuable time
