In brief: Unfocused
Common reasons for problems concentrating include: poor sleep, lack of exercise, inadequate nutrition, supplement/vitamin misadventures, substance abuse, caffeine/energy drinks, stress, depression, and anxiety.
Underlying medical disorders can contribute. Add can be meaningfully evaluated via self-report scales/psychoeducational tests. Excellent prognosis with stimulants + metacognitive therapy.
