Difficulty Focusing on Daily Tasks
Do you have days that you have difficulty focusing on what needs to be accomplished?
How about even when you have made either a mental plan or actually taken the time to write down what has to be done, you just can't seem to make any progress with that list?
There may possibly be unexpected inturruptions that you cannot control, which can be quite frustrating in itself.
However, even though you have the best intentions of "taking care of business" and getting certain things under control, when your brain isn't cooperating, you most likely may end up with a "wasted" day.
If you are able to, do what you can to get yourself back on track. Maybe splash your face with water, take a short walk, anything that may put you in the correct frame of mind to get some work done, even though you may still not quite be "all there". In fact, you may find out that you are actually do only "half a...." work.
So why are you having such an issue with concentration?
First, what are the exact characteristics of not being able to concentrate?
-- Lost train of thought
-- Fuzzy thinking
-- Inability to concentrate for long periods of time
-- Inability to focus on complex tasks
Sleep disorders and fatigue can cause you to be too exhausted to concentrate properly on daily tasks.
Psychological symptoms such as depression, anxiety, or panic disorders can also have a hand in you having a difficult time concentrating.
Being under stress may also contribute to not being able to focus to the best of your abilities.
Finding it hard to concentrate will make certain aspects of your work and social life very difficult to deal with and might result in poor performance at work or poor relationships.
Following these steps may help with your concentration.
1) DON’T drive. DO walk or cycle.
Exercise is an extremely important ingredient for keeping the mind sharp
2) DON’T be messy. DO have a comfortable workspace.
Make sure you have an adequate amount of work space and any essential work items
on the desk so that you won't have to keep getting up.
3) DON’T take coffee breaks, DO take water breaks
Avoid any caffeine based drink. Although you might think that they improve concentration
span, and make you more alert, they only do so for a very short period of time. The come- down from these stimulants makes you sleepy and won’t improve your concentration levels
in the long run.
4) DON’T bore your brain. DO exercise your brain.
If your brain isn’t stimulated then your attention span suffers.
5) DON’T get into bad habits in the evening. DO relax and de-stress.
Once you have finished work and returned home, it’s important you take the right
measures to prepare for the next day. You need to get a good nights rest.
Just like there are days when you are not on the "top of your game" as far as your concentration level, there are probably days that you are "hitting the ball out of the park", so to speak.
Everyday is a new day, just like every person is unique, so whatever kind of day you may be having, take whatever steps you find that work for you and keep moving forward to achieving what you wish to achieve.
Because It's All About YOU! and Changing Yourself and Your Life for the Better
