Preparing for prayer

I thought this was a very helpful tip from Muslim blogger Tradicionalista. Until I read this I hadn't realized that I almost never bother to prepare myself for prayer...which may have something to do with my difficulty concentrating:

There was something described to me a couple of weeks ago called the 5 minute rule. It means that if you were thinking of something other than Allah(swt) for about 5 minutes before the prayer, then it is pretty much a guarantee that you'll be thinking about that thing during the prayer.

Read the rest here.
