This multi-tasking costs in lower level of concentration. Though people use various techniques and methods to increase the level of concentration but since antiquity yoga and meditation has been practiced as the best way in this regard. Meditation is a practice of contemplation.

Meditation, practiced with meditation music, ensures the best result as the soothing tunes of the music help to calm and relax the mind.
For a mindfulness meditation, the meditator has to sit silently and comfortably in a noiseless place, focusing on a single object or even a single process. Observing one’s own breath or chanting a particular monosyllabic mantra can be a good way of starting meditation. Sit straight and upright without a support and relax the body. Next, control your breath and breathe slowly but evenly. Once the breathing is perfect, deeply concentrate at the point between the two eyebrows. In this stage one needs to keep the mind focused and the energy internalized. Feel the peace gradually generated by this practice. At the very beginning one can meditate for five minutes and then increase it with times. As this meditation is largely a spiritual practice, end it with some soulful divine music or prayer.
