Concentration And Life

We all have gone through this situation, where we are doing some work but still, we’re distracted by other work. For me, it’s about online lectures and writing notes, and here my focus gets divided into two works. I try to focus on one thing at a time but the efforts are vain. this happens with us always. I’ve read many ideas, articles about how to concentrate on things but no one has written on unfocused concentration. So I overcome this (Still overcoming no promises) with some tricks.

1. Train your mind

Start training your conscious mind while doing work. If your brain starts to lose concentration on another equal amount of important work, then stop there, and remind yourself that right now this is also your priority and after finishing this you’ll jump on that work. The conscious reminder is handy. It is like a restrain on your brain.

2. Use only one device at a time

If you are working on a laptop then only use a laptop don’t go for your smartphone. Using both devices will create an absolute headache and it will confuse your mind. If you think that you need a smartphone for social media and messaging, then go for their web versions. Pin them on your browser so you won’t lose your important messages.

We are constantly distracted throughout the day. Without focusing on anything with a calm, relaxed mind, we keep jumping from messages, to-do lists, social media, and email.
Constantly jumping and busy minds keep us stressed out and unfocused. This mind in this state can be termed as a 'Monkey Mind'.
