How to focus better!

Oct 13, 2018

Are you having trouble focusing on a particular task? You might be facing trouble while studying, working or even while you’re practising a hobby! There are many ways to overcomes this. But here are a few basic tips that will help you stay on track.

First, prepare your mind to perform the task. Tell yourself you need so many minutes or hours to finish this task at hand.

Motivate yourself to see it through with the thought of achieving the feeling of successfully completing something. Next, prioritize your subtasks. Maybe you need to work on some parts of your project first – finish those and set the base for the remaining tasks.

Take a break when you feel distracted or when you have that first yawn! Don’t forget to spoil yourself with sugary treats or coffee to keep yourself active. If you’re on a diet, some fruits might provide the energy you need.

If you’re in an environment that is too hot or cold, try to set the temperature right so that you are comfortable because this is a huge factor when it comes to being able to focus! Take short breaks, listen to music if that’s your thing or try doodling for five to ten minutes in between just to let off some steam.

Lastly, have faith in yourself – that you will see this through. You will surely be able to focus better!

Mind Exercises

Do you often feel that you are drained emotionally and mentally? Are you unable to focus on your tasks? Do you often forget about where you left things? Perhaps a few mind exercises can help sort you out! Try testing your recall memory by making a list of things to do, or a grocery list – and memorize it. After an hour or more, try to recall the items. This is a great way to stimulate your mental energy. If you love music, learn to play an instrument. It is a known fact that learning something new or complex for a span of time can help the aging mind. Not into instruments? How about cooking, or learning a new language! It’s possible! You can also try counting in your head rather than on your fingers!

When children are young, they play many games to improve their mental abilities through mind exercises – word games, memory games, strategy games. It is important to practice these things even as we grow. It is now an accepted fact that even video games improve our mental reflexes. So take so time out to game once in a while! Or if you want something a little more quiet, why not try painting, yoga, gold, or knitting. Your mind is a powerful tool when it is trained in the right way. Pick out your favorite mind exercises and try to keep your mind just as active as your body!

Time flies when you’re having fun.

Have you noticed how quickly time passes when you’re having a good time? You want to bottle that time and save it so you can cherish those moments forever. You never want a happy moment to pass! But on most days you find that time is crawling and the clock is ticking endlessly. Perhaps you’re stuck in a lecture, or at work on a slow day. In moments like these, you wish time flew by faster.

This is a huge mistake! Why would you want to give up something that you can never get back? Every second matters. When you think time is going too slowly, it merely means than you aren’t engaged in something that you like doing, or you’re bored. When this happens, it’s time to take a walk, get some fresh air, call a friend and have a pointless chat about old times!

Time needs to be cherished and utilized in such a way that when you look back at life you don’t regret having wasted your time by wishing time was over! The next time you feel like time is passing too slowly, think about the fact that this time will never come back to you. Draw that picture you are envisioning, eat the yummy pizza, go for that fifteen minute jog you’ve been prolonging, rather than sitting around and cursing the clock for boring you.

Time is the most precious thing on earth and we are the only species that knows we have limited time. Let’s make our lives worth living by using time efficiently and passionately! It’s time to enjoy the time you have left.

Why worry?

Worry is normal. Anxiety is common. Paranoia is a part of our lives. But do we spend too much time worrying and focusing on the negative? Most people do! Worrying is healthy to a certain extent – a mother worries about her child who is travelling alone and would probably make a few calls to them in case they haven’t reported that they’ve reached their destination. This ensures that the child is safe. This type of worry is instinctive and it has purpose.

But what about worrying about the future? What about worrying about how your child’s life would be after 15 years? This type of worry is unnecessary, time consuming and damaging. It influences decisions you make for today and although this may seem like the right thing – it’s not. Worry shouldn’t consume your life to an extent that it makes things worse! In worrying about your child’s future, you may overprotect them to an extent that they cannot fend for themselves without your support. Or they may become rebellious and disturbed and turn against you.

Worry is harmful and it spreads negativity to another person. A colleague or friend who constantly worries and complains may initially derive sympathy or consolation from people around them. After a couple of days, their energy seems to drain everyone and nobody wants to be around them. Are you this type of person? If you are, then your ‘worries’ are the main reason why nobody wants to be around you. But that’s not all, worrying and stress will make you stop enjoying your own company. The thoughts in your head will be so overbearing that you can’t spend time alone or if you do, you try to fill it with habits that are repetitive and destructive to your inner peace and mental health. To get rid of worry, try to meditate everyday. Believe in the goodness of people and trust in yourself. Life is full of ups and downs but it is best to always look on the bright side. So don’t worry, be happy!
