5 Things You Should Do This Week to Improve Your Mental Focus!
This week, I wanted to share with you some tips that could possibly help you improve your mental focus.
Here are the 5 tips you can incorporate this week to commit to improving your mind, body and soul.
- Create a distraction list – If you’re in the middle of meal prepping, exercising, cleaning the house or getting ready to run an errand and you’re mind begins to wonder – whatever it is that’s about to distract you I want you to write it down. Once you already have it written down you’re planting a seed in your mind to come back to it later, so you can remain focus on your current situation.
- Meditate – This suggestion is often overlooked by many, but believe it or not it can help with stress, anxiety and improve your attention span. You don’t have to spend hours meditating, but take 10 to 20 minutes a day in the morning or afternoon and ease your mind with soft music or a scent of lavender grasping the room and focus on breathing.
- Listen to an audible book or podcast – A self-help book or a podcast is always great to listen to on your way to work. It helps with putting your mind at ease and allows for your mind to embrace positivity before starting the day.
- Practice attentive listening and being fully present – Whether you’re at work, engaging with your significant other or friends, we have a tendency to talk over the person by giving our opinion or zone out. Instead of zoning out or automatically responding, I would like for you to practice and focus on listening to individuals. This will ultimately help you improve your mental focus and learn how to become fully present in all aspects of your life.
- Exercise your body – Researchers have found exercise primarily helps your brain’s ability to function. This also improves our strength and willpower, so the next time you dread exercising think about how it will actually improve your mental focus.
