Have you ever attended a really boring lecture, needed to complete a really dull task, or simply been tired when you needed to be alert? In these situations it can be very difficult to concentrate; our minds wander and we are prone to daydreaming. One way to prevent yourself from daydreaming when you don't want to is to put your body into an unfamiliar or uncomfortable position. Maybe you could sit on your hands, curl up your toes, or keep pinching yourself. Try repeatedly contracting and relaxing certain muscles in your body. These actions make it difficult for your mind and body to relax. If you are not relaxed then you will be less like to tune out and start daydreaming.

If you can anticipate when you are going to be put into one of these situations, you could prepare by getting some good sleep. If that isn't possible, you could bring along some props to help you stay alert. For example, if you bring a glass of ice, you could hold an ice cube in your mouth. The coldness from the ice will keep you awake. Experiment with your own ways of keeping your mind and body alert.
