Improving your focus can make you a better student or employee as well as a happier and more organized person. If you want to improve your focus, then you need to learn to avoid distractions and to be prepared with a focus-filled game plan before you set out to accomplish a task.
According to a news report, both teens and adults check their smartphones 150 times per day (or every six minutes), and send an average of 110 texts per day. Research has shown us that to change your bad habits, link it to some sort of monetary loss. Fear of losing money will help you get rid of your bad phone craving habit.
Keep an organized space:
Keeping an organized space is the key to being able to focus. Focusing is much easier if you know exactly where everything in your office, library desk, or general workspace is. Having an organized space will save you countless time when you need to find something, and it will keep you more motivated to get work done.
Prioritize your tasks:
Remember to do the most creative or difficult tasks in the morning, when you’re full of energy and motivation. Save the easier things, like scheduling meetings, filing old papers, or cleaning your work space, for the afternoon, when you’re feeling more drained.
A new year is a new beginning. It is like a new birth. As the New Year begins, we feel that we need to make changes in our life, start on a new path, do new things, and say goodbye to old habits, problems and difficulties. Often, we start making new plans and new resolutions. We might feel elated, inspired and hopeful, but sometimes also apprehensive.
Staying focused can help you accomplish a variety of professional and personal tasks, from studying for a test to finishing your work an hour early. There are various practical steps you can take to help yourself focus better and to stop checking your Facebook or phone every fifteen minutes. To stay focused on the task ahead of you, resist the impulse to give in to distractions, make a to-do list (which has built-in breaks) and resist the temptation to multi-task.
Make time for breaks during the day:
You should take at least a 5–10-minute break for every hour of work, or a 3–5-minute break for every half hour of work. This will help you get more motivated to finish the task, give you a break to rest your eyes, and will give you some time to transition your mind to the next task ahead.
Improve your focus stamina:
Though you may think that you’ll always be easily distracted, anyone can improve his or her focus with a little motivation. All you have to do is pick a given task, and give yourself 30 minutes to work on only that task without any distractions—without even getting up. Keep going and see how long you can build up your focus stamina.
Stop Procrastination & Focus on your Goals:
Avoid delaying any of your activities by leaving things to be done for tomorrow, next week, or next month. Rather, have them done now and move on to the next project.
The beginning of a new year inspires us to start new beginnings and make changes in our life, but this inspiration should continue throughout the year, and not evaporate after a few days or weeks.
It depends on you if you are going to carry your resolutions, on your inner strength, and on your ability to continue despite difficulties and obstacles. Make this year stand out, so that at the end of the year you feel happy and satisfied.
