It is just a question of practice and hence of time. So continue to listen.
If you have a lot of free time, there is no problem. Otherwise it’s more difficult.

One “psychological” rule consists in the following.
Say to yourself that it is not very important to understand all the details of what you are listening to. Try always to concentrate on the meaning of the whole: sentence, speech, song, new etc. Don’t try to “extract” some phonemes which were unintelligible for you - you consume your brain energy instead of continuing listening. Say to yourself: listen up ! The speech is continuing. Perhaps there will be something more important and at the same time more easy for me.
