Is it so hard to focus? Really?
Yes, it can be!
Can you relate? I’m sure you can, as I know that this isn’t just me!
There’s some interesting research¹ popping up that’s worth a read. One of the ways to help us focus that sticks out for me, and that I’ve definitely found to be true for me, includes giving myself breaks.
We all know that pushing ourselves as if we‘re machines and striving to keep going can feel like it works to a certain extent (at least in theory, and when deadlines are looming), however, it’s a bit like never letting the car stop to cool down, refuel or – more appropriately for us these days – to recharge. (It’s been a goal of ours for a while to be running solely on electricity – and it feels like a big win to have ticked this one off! The next step is to be fully self-sufficient with solar power).
Another handy top tip that can pay dividends is to let our minds wander a bit. Obviously, if we’ve got a set amount of time to get something done, we might tend to give our minds a break during allocated times.
One that you know is a big favorite of mine which probably doesn’t need too much explanation is to prioritise drinking water. As you know, I had a bit of a wake-up call a couple of years ago when I actually measured how much water I was drinking and I was shocked.
Are you keen to find your focus edge, and if so – which one of these top tips will you pick to trial for yourself for the next few days?
Looking forward to seeing you on this week’s #ALivewithFi when we explore this topic a little deeper, and until then, have a fabulous week – Ciao for now 🙂
