Our philosophy teaches that the body is a mirror of the outside world and
vice versa. If you have problems in concentration in all aspects of life,
it could be because your environment is affecting you adversely. For
example I used to go to sleep late and wake up early in the morning. The
resulting lack of sleep made me forgetful and unable to concentrate.
When I started going to bed earlier these problems vanished without the
need for medecines etc. As Satish wrote, yoga might be of help as it is
about control of mind, body, and senses. But only someone who knows you
and your situation personally can properly guide you in such matters.
