Can't Focus? Try these 5 Easy Life Hacks to Skyrocket Your Concentration


It’s so easy to get off focus. Some days you try to concentrate on the task at hand and your mind wanders and you waste a lot of time.

We have all been there. I wrote down some ways to stay focused so you can be more productive and successful.

5. Eliminate Distractions

 

Don’t begin work in a place where you know there will be loud conversations, beeping car horns outside, people loudly eating chips, babies crying, dogs barking, etc.

Try to find a quiet place. Turn your phone on silent and lock yourself out of your email and social media while you try to get your job finished.

4. Plan Ahead

 

Making a To-Do list of things that you want to accomplish can help you stay on track and not deviate from your plan.

Prioritize the most important tasks and put those at the top of the list.

If you know exactly what you need to do today there are no excuses! Follow the list that you made for yourself.

3. Stop Multitasking

 

Monotasking is underrated! While it’s great to be able to juggle multiple projects at once, when it comes to focusing your attention, choose one topic at a time.

When you’re trying to do multiple things at once, your performance will most likely suffer.

It can be difficult to choose one project to see through to completion, but your work will be notable better than if you were working on two at one time.

2. Allow Time For Breaks

 

Your brain cannot work for hours on end without any time off. Give yourself a break!

Walk around the block, eat a snack, meditate, or chat with friends. You deserve some time away from your work.

We wish we had the superhuman ability to concentrate for hours on end with no breaks, but unfortunately, this just isn’t the case. Take breaks!

1. Workspace

 

 

 

 

Make sure your workspace is quiet, free of distractions, and serves as an appealing environment to deeply concentrate and critically think.

Going to a familiar workspace will jumpstart your brain into thinking “okay, this is where I work. It’s time to settle down and get to business.”

Being in an environment that makes it appealing to focus will allow you to do just that.

---------

It can be so tough not to daydream through your workday or count down the minutes until you’re off work and out with friends, but you’ll feel so proud of yourself for focusing.

Learning how to focus will pay off. It’s a skill that you need to possess in order to go far in life.
