With everything that is happening around us in the world, concentrating can feel impossible.
Schedule some breaks into your workday and allow your mind to wander freely into the "default mode network."
The network is where the mind finds innovation, creativity and regularly make better decisions than the focused mind.
This means first turning your attention inward.
Spend about twenty minutes trying to think of someplace enjoyable while doing some form of low-key activity, such as walking, knitting, or gardening. Doing this throughout the day can help your mind gain a fresh approach to the job at hand.
Our days are full of distractions. Blocking out distractions is essential when we want to dive into deep focus—for example, turning off text messaging, notifications, and social media alerts.
Plan to respond to your phone and other screens after you've completed a period of sustained focus.
Learn to understand your body clock. Are you alert in the morning, or do you prefer working at night?
Schedule your most important projects during the period of peak performance. Resist the temptation to use that time for busywork.
Finding new hobbies is not only exciting, but it can help us discover new solutions to the problems we're facing at work or home.
Allowing your mind time to play helps innovation that is not possible when focusing on a problem.
It provides a reset time to consider what's really important.
Intentionally setting aside some time away from our screens and their interruptions can help us focus on the world outside our screens.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
