Meditate to relax and improve concentration

When you are doing your homework or revision, how long can you concentrate? Are you easily distracted by the TV or the tasty snacks in the fridge? Do you find your efficiency low?

If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, you may need to strengthen your concentration.

Present your arguments

When do you need to make your essay argumentative? When the topic is controversial and you have to show your stance with good support, it is not enough just to present your one-sided arguments. You need to take into account the opposing views. You have to mention the counter-arguments and to refute them.

Questions of faith

God or science? It is an age-old debate and one which still rages.

From the moment Charles Darwin first put pen to paper the religious view of life has been on the defensive.

In fact, it goes back even further. Galileo found the heavens were not as the Catholic church described them in the 17th century - and then Newton upset the apple cart further.

Finding the faith

THE article, ''Seeking faith in stability'' (Sunday Morning Post, July 3) interested me, but there is one reason why these people are turning to Christianity which did not seem to have been mentioned or alluded to - and that is they have developed faith, a belief in God, His church and His gifts.

These are very real to those who have developed the faith and experienced it.
