Updated: Jul 25, 2023

Are you struggling with focus?

Do you feel like your "to do" list is so jammed you don't know where to begin?

Do you find yourself starting a project, then moving on to the next, without completion of the last project?

WELLLLLL..... lets get FOCUSED!

Here are 15 tips to help yourself get focused.

1-Minimize Multitasking- Scientist have found that multitaskers are easily distracted and LESS EFFICIENT at tasks.

2-Meditate-By meditating, you're practicing focus, which studies show helps with concentration in other activities.

3-Exercise regularly- scientist think that regular exercise can help stimulate the release of chemicals in the brain that rewire memory circuits, improving function and enhancing focus capacity.

4-Make a to-do-list-To Do lists help you prioritize and tie up loose ends from unfinished work, which can keep you focused since we tend to remember incomplete more than completed work.

5-Try some Caffeine- Studies show that caffeine may, in moderate doses, help boost focus- particularly in those of us who are fatigued.

6-Take breaks-one study found that taking brief breaks from work can help you stay focused, whereas no break will make you lose focus.

7-Keep work at work-Apart from just giving your brain a break some research suggests that having downtime away from a problem could help you solve it.

8-Train your brain-some studies have found that people who are easily distracted will benefit from "brain training" exercises, like those promoted by Lumosity or Cogmed.

9-Find a quiet place- ambient noise can stimulate the release of the stress hormone cortisol, which can impair brain function and hinder focus.

10-Follow the 20-20-20-rule- after hours at a screen, your eyes get tired and cant focus. Reset them by staring at a distant object at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 seconds.

11-Get a good nights sleep-getting a solid seven to eight hours ahead of a busy workday could be the difference between being frazzled and being laser-focused.

12-Work offline- every time you visit Facebook or check your inbox, experts think a bit of your attention remains with those tasks. So, minimize distractions by working offline sometimes.

13-Establish a favorite focus spot- according to a concept called ego depletion, we have a finite amount of mental energy, so don't waste it on choosing where to work.

14-Devote specific hours to tasks- like picking a consistent focus spot, designating "focus hours" also helps fend off ego depletion.

15- Embrace boredom- if you're used to needing multiple forms of stimulation while relaxing. It may have a negative impact on your ability to focus. Embrace doing nothing for a change.

I hope some of these simple steps help.
