How to Increase Your Focus

GET GOOD AT FOCUSING

With today's constant distractions, it's more difficult than ever to stay on track and master your tasks. We understand the struggle, and we're here to help with some useful tips and trick to tackle your to-do list with ease!

MULTITASKING DOESN'T MEAN MORE PRODUCTIVITY

Nowadays, the more you can do, the more of an asset you are, especially if you can do more simultaneously! However, this line of thinking is actually a myth. When you spread yourself too thin, you actually diminish your attention to detail and ability to focus, thus making it harder to get back on track when you get distracted. 


Instead of trying to do everything all at once, try this:

• Dedicate a specific amount of time for each task.

• Stay focused throughout the allotted time on the task at hand.

• Don't break focus until it's time to move on to something else or take a break.

GOOD FOCUS STARTS WITH THE RIGHT FUEL

Facts: Food fuels focus! Make sure to properly nourish your body and mind with nutritious foods like leafy greens, omega-3's, antioxidants and moderate amounts of caffeine. Getting ample amounts of sleep is also a must!

YOUR AMBIANCE SHOULD SET YOU UP FOR SUCCESS

When you want to "get in the zone," your surroundings are a big factor in how much focus you can sustain. If your working area is ridden with distractions, it's time to re-assess your space. Turn your working environment into a powerhouse of productivity by making it less tempting to reach for your phone, playing soft, focus-driven music, or incorporating a grounding and invigorating fragrance.

PLANNING YOUR BREAKS HELPS BREAK UP THE TIME

Remember, of course, that at the end of the day, you're human and, in fact, NOT a robot, which means expecting to dedicate focus 100% of your time is simply not realistic. Instead, plan out blocks of time to get in a break where you can drink a glass of water, stretch, or take a walk down the corridor to rest and refocus.

MOVEMENT IS MEDICINE

We tend to think of the mind and body as separate entities; however, the link between the two is undeniable. Physical activity helps our cognitive function, and thus, our ability to focus by boosting our dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin levels, which energizes and refocuses the mind. Additionally, exercise helps to reduce stress and combat postures we typically adopt throughout the day (i.e. hunching over a laptop and sitting many hours), especially with practices like Pilates and Yoga. Your off-duty time also ties into your on-duty performance.
