How to Focus Better in 5 Simple Steps

How to Focus Better in 5 Simple Steps

To be consistently productive you must first learn how to focus better on each task you face to minimize or eliminate any time wasted! Maintaining your focus and concentration also helps improve the quality of your efforts because the more you pay attention to what you’re doing the less chance you have of making mistakes! What we’re discussing here today is what YOU can do to strengthen your focusing abilities so that you can plan your day effectively to get more done!

Here are 5 simple steps you can follow to boost your focus and concentration as well as your productivity when preparing to tackle any tasks or any day!

Calm Yourself

You can NOT expect to be very productive with your time when your mind is under the influence of your emotions! The first order of business when trying to improve your focus and concentration is to clear your head of anything other than the task at hand! Emotions, as subtle as they may sometimes be, can dramatically effect your ability to train your thoughts on just one thing! It is common for humans to be emotional about many things, good news, bad news or even just feeling overwhelmed by having so much to do! Lingering emotions like these however will only serve to undermine your efforts/abilities to concentrate or to even think rationally, so calm yourself down beforehand!

Prioritize

Want to be really productive? Always plan your day in advance so you can determine and prioritize what you need to get done! Planning in advance like this not only helps you target, in advance, those things most important to you or your business, but it also allows you to ‘hit the floor running’ when the new day starts! Upon awakening you’ll already know what your priorities are and as you prepare to start the day, you’ll also be thinking about the best way(s) to complete the tasks you’ve scheduled!

Avoid Distractions

Trying to get more done while checking email, surfing the web, watching television or engaging in social media amongst other things, does NOT work! Distractions like these will only waste your time and literally destroy any focus and concentration you’re attempting to muster up to make yourself more productive! There will always be time for these things but NOT when you have tasks of greater importance that require your attention!

Get Comfortable

Don’t stand if sitting is more comfortable and position yourself away from high traffic areas that may be too distracting! Remember, you’re trying to focus on priorities and NOT fussing with your location or position so that you are comfortable! This is something you can do in advance such as when you plan your day! Obviously the more comfortable you are, short of lying down, the more productive you’ll tend to be because even the slightest discomfort can distract you from things of higher importance!

Take Breaks to Recharge

Focusing intently for an extended period of time can be both physically and mentally exhausting so ‘reward’ yourself with periodic breaks! Talk to anybody who works on a computer or some other seemingly ‘mundane’ task and they will tell you, trying to maintain your focus and concentration can stress your mind as well as your eyesight! Be sure to take regular breaks to stretch, rest your eyes and even gain a new perspective on what it is you’re undertaking! Much like a computer you’re simply rebooting to help maintain your productivity!

Learning how to focus better is the FIRST step you need to take in order to get more done with each and every day! Your focus and concentration are vitally important when it comes to doing more while committing fewer mistakes and the 5 steps discussed above serve to strengthen these critical abilities! Remember, as you plan your day you only have so many hours to work with so it only makes sense to take the suggested steps above so that your day is productive and NOT one full of frustrations and regrets!
