Tasks involving complex attention are the ones that people with MS often find the most difficult. Complex attention tasks require a lot of concentration and usually require thinking of two things at once. However concentration is involved in almost everything we do. It can affect how much we are able to enjoy a film or a book. It can affect how well we can remember a message or conversation. It can affect how long we can work effectively on a household or employment task. You may decide to organise your day to optimise your concentration.
