Can’t Focus On Gemara [#3193]

Question:

I have a lot of difficulty when it comes to focusing on my learning. The moment I try to concentrate, all kinds of thoughts enter my mind and confuse me. This especially happens when I learn Gemara. When I learn mussar or halachah, though, this doesn’t happen as much.

Answer:

Spend some time on learning Gemara, and give it your best. The rest of your times can spent on learning halachah and mussar. Gradually, and with a lot of patience, you should increase the amount of time you spend on learning Gemara, to the best of your ability.
