We have focus when we are able to concentrate and pay particular, intentional attention to something. Where we put our focus can change everything.
Inspiration to deepen your focus
Do one thing at a time.
Play music designed to support the brain in focusing. Check out the focus tracks in the Music section of the Calm app.
Before beginning a new task, rest the brain with a short meditation.
Turn off distractions, like social media notifications or the phone’s ringer.
Take regular breaks to stretch.
Read longer articles ... slowly. (Or listen to podcasts or audiobooks at regular speed.)
Set a timer and commit to focusing on a particular task during that time. Start small and work your way up to longer periods of time (but not more than 90 minutes without taking a break to rest the mind).
