How can you take control of your attention?Each day, you face a seemingly endless sea of information. Learning to filter through the onslaught of messages helps reclaim your ability to concentrate on meaningful ideas.
SCIENCE SAYS: The brain was built for single-tasking. Information overload tends to increase distractions and multitasking, which works against optimal brain performance. Filtering content to block unimportant details trains your brain to focus on a single task and process the important details.
WAYS TO BEGIN:
- Create a workspace conducive to concentration.
- Determine your priorities and goals in a given task.
- Minimize or eliminate distractions, like extra technology and noise.
- Take regular brain breaks to reset your mindset and help reassess your progress and goals.
