articles self-care May 15, 2020

When you’re supposed to be working, do you find your mind wandering? Is it hard to stay focused on your tasks? You know that for you to accomplish things, you need to stay focused. But the more that your mind wanders around, the more likely are you to get stuck doing the same thing for a long time. 

Focus on work or school work can make you more productive. This means you can accomplish more tasks. However, the opposite is true, as well. The more distracted you are, the less likely it is for you to become productive. You may be used to multitasking, but it can be counterproductive in the long run.

In this modern world, where everything can be a form of distraction, it has become quite impossible to just focus on one thing. And then there is a constant demand to complete a number of tasks in a day, each one trying to pull your attention in several different directions. Is it still possible for you to be as productive as you want to be?

The importance of time management can never be too emphasized. When you know how to manage your time well, you can produce more in a shorter time. 

For example, instead of spending time on social media, you can use that time to finish the small tasks on your list. Social media is one form of distraction. Although it is simple and quite entertaining, it could lead to ultimate failure.

There are several ways to overcome this. With some simple steps to help boost your focus and concentration, you can stay on task, eliminate distractions, and enhance your attention today. 

How Do You Do Impactful Work?

You begin to do impactful work when you work on various time management strategies. In the to-do list that you prepare every day, make sure to group your tasks to the small and big task categories. Sadly, some of these tasks will be carried over to another day’s work, not because they were too hard to complete, but because you were too distracted to achieve them. 

When you begin your workday, the first thing that you do is to check the mail, then you shift to checking your social media accounts, and that’s where you begin to get lost. It may seem like only ten minutes or so, but if you add it all up, it could be the time spent accomplishing a big task for the day. 

It will really help if you start the day, giving some thought to what you need to accomplish for that day. Preparing your to-do list will help keep you focused on what needs to be done. The urgent ones should be on top. What is worthy of your focus today? 

You can produce impactful work every day if you choose your tasks right. For example, if there is a job that affects several other roles, get that one done first. If you have the time and the energy, go ahead and look into a bigger picture. What is it that you want to accomplish this quarter? Perhaps you can also ask yourself what you can do for the world. 

Begin with your to-do list. It will make all the difference in the world. 

Tips On How To Stay Focused

You ask yourself every day how to get through work without being distracted. It does not take a genius to figure out how you can stay focused. You know you can do it. Perhaps the only problem is that you do not recognize the simple things that contribute to your focus. 

Do not fret just yet. Here are simple tips you can do to help achieve effective time management: 

Tip 1: Eliminate those distractions.

 The first step that you need to take is to identify those distractions that keep you from completing your work. Then, eliminate them. While you can’t do away will all of them all at once, getting rid of one distraction will help a lot. Make an effort to reduce your distractions so you can focus more on your work. 

Tip 2: Take coffee in small cups.

Drinking coffee and other caffeinated drinks may help keep your head together, but taking them in small doses adds to the positive impact on how you can stay focused. The key to making the most out of your caffeine consumption is to consume it in moderation. When you drink it as often as you do now, you will end up feeling more nervous or anxious, which eventually will reduce your ability to stay focused. Either slowly try to break the caffeine habit, or drink in smaller doses, so you have a more consistent flow.

Tip 3: Put a hold in your social media use. 

If you are taking a break from work and you decide to use it on social media, then you are taking your break wrong. Every five minutes that you stay on Facebook is five minutes away from your focus. The longer that it takes you to engage in social media, the more distracted you become. So instead of engaging in social media, get yourself a book. Read a few pages to help you relax. Or maybe you can color too. 

Tip 4: Fuel your body.

Eat healthily. Junk food may seem the easiest, most convenient option to get your body fueled, but it does not help your brain focus at all. So go ahead and tweak that diet a little bit. Slowly ease out the junk food and put in more fruits and vegetables. Start eating lean meat too. In between meals, you can stay hydrated with water. All these tips will help you improve your overall health and concentration. 

Tip 5: Get enough sleep. 

It is no surprise that you lack good sleep at night. While it may happen a few times in a month, you have to make sure that you get good sleep most of the nights. How do you do it? Avoid coffee after lunch. Switch off all your electronic devices off an hour before going to bed. Read a good book to help your mind and your body to unwind down. Keep your bedroom cool and quiet. All these could help improve you fall to sleep.

Whatever is keeping you distracted should be eliminated. Help yourself focus on being more productive by utilizing these tips every day.
