zodiac signs with short attention spans

Easily distracted is an understatement. As I write this, I have several tabs open on my computer so I can check Facebook, Twitter, my email, my horoscope, and Google whenever I need to.

When I watch a TV show or movie at home, I stop it at some point to get a snack or just walk around. I’m always looking at my phone, and if a book doesn’t grab me right away, I will stop reading it and try to find something else.

I have a short attention span. When you are like me, it’s easy to get distracted and lose your focus. It can be challenging to get a task done because there’s always some other stimulus that is fighting for you to notice them.

There’s a lot competing for my attention. I don’t want to miss out on something and I also don’t want to get bored. It’s better to let my mind jump from thing to thing rather than keep it riveted to one thing.

When you have a short attention span, it can be challenging to complete things. I can’t tell you how many unfinished things I have in my life: essays, books, shows, crafts, cleaning projects, and things I should organize.

Here are 6 zodiac signs with short attention spans who can't seem to stay focused for even a minute.

1. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

It's beyond challenging for a Gemini to stay focused on anything or anyone; even if they're in the middle of a fascinating conversation they will jump from topic to topic.

They demonstrate a lack of consistency as it's hard for them to stay dedicated to one thing for a long time. Geminis have a problem paying attention to details or staying on track, which is why they are at the top of the list for zodiac signs with short attention spans.

2. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is another sign who absolutely hates being bored and will overschedule themselves to avoid it. They're constantly doing something because if they slow down, they'll get bored.

Aries stand the danger of being overactive and it's not unheard of for an Aries to be diagnosed with ADHD as a child and as an adult. Since they never slow down, they're likely to make impulsive decisions and because of their short attention span, they'll be off taking another risk before the dust has settled on the first one.

3. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Hey, Sagittarius, could you stop for one minute? Is "must keep moving" the mantra of the Sagittarius? They need constant stimulation, newness, and change or they'll get bored.

Boredom is the worst for Sagittarius as is sameness, routine, and constancy. They think about huge issues and are extremely intelligent but can't linger for long on any one topic. If you want to hold a Sagittarius' attention give them lots of stimuli and keep things moving. Stagnation is like death to Sagittarius.

4. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

It's challenging for a Libra to focus — they can do it, but it takes effort. If there's anything that can distract them, it will. The truth is they like that they have so many interests and are open to exploring new things.

However, if something really grabs them, they can concentrate on it. It's just difficult for Libras to finish things once they've started because they've usually found something else to put their focus on.

5. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are very impatient — they want everything as quickly as possible. They don't have a talent for patiently waiting. For Leos, it's people who tend to distract them, as they usually have a lot of people in their life who demand their attention.

Think of Leo as being the King and having his subjects constantly at him for advice, favors, or requests. Since Leos are constantly barraged by outside forces, it can be challenging for them to focus on anything. Everyone wants Leo's attention.

6. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Part of the reason that Aquarius has a short attention span is the modern world. Aquarians like their tech and electronic toys. How can they focus when they've got their social media to keep on, video games, iPads, computers, and phones to distract them?

Aquarians are digitally gifted, so it's natural that they'd be easily distracted.
