what do you use to help with fidgeting and paying attention? I have a new boss at my work and they are making me go to a 2-day seminar that will require me to be sitting down the whole time. I want to make a good first impression but I can't sit still or pay attention for more than 5 minutes at a time currently... any and all advice welcome!

      That can happen, try taking something that engages senses with you. It could be a favourite eraser with an image on.

      If you are allowed to bring a recording device and utilize it then I would say try to get as much of it on audio as possible and segment it for yourself 5 minutes at a time for when the moment comes that you are prepared to reflect on such topics

        @Galili this is what I do. I take endless notes I never actually read later. Just taking them helps me stay focused.

"Using fidgets can help with paying attention in class. You could try finding a small fidget as it helps a lot of people. Another suggestion is to use physical movement or doodling for focus. Writing down important information and reciting it out loud can also be beneficial. Some people find that using a reminders app on their phone/computer to ping them to get certain things done is helpful. Colour coding each coloured pen/highlighter/sticker/etc. with a labelled meaning can assist with memory recall. Chewing gum might also help."
