There comes a time in everyone’s day that they are going to have to focus, pay attention to detail, and remember that information. It’s just a part of life.
But some people have a hard time getting themselves to focus when it’s important, and often they miss out on information that will be useful to remember in the future.
Whether you are a student, a parent, or someone in the workplace, there will be times that you have to learn, and retain information. If you feel that you are a person who has a hard time doing this, or that it is simply out of your control, there is a very simple way to hone in your focus and get the job done.
Try out this little method to get yourself to focus…
Physically look up at the ceiling, close your eyes and completely clear your mind, and focus on your breath for a few seconds. Don’t think about the task at hand, don’t think about your baby at home, just make your thoughts quiet.
Then, open your eyes while still looking up, and while maintaining a clear head slowly bring your eyes down to your task while strongly imagining that focus staying right in your peripheral vision as you carry out your job.
If you feel your focus heading in another direction and need to regroup, start over and repeat the process. It doesn’t take more than five minutes, and can make all the difference in completing tasks and learning new information.
