Trouble with a wandering mind?




Make sense of all the clutter by focusing. Focus on the task at hand, the goal you wish to accomplish. Focusing becomes easier in the right environment. If your setting is filled with distractions, as will your mind. Find a tidy, quiet place where you can focus your attention on one thing at a time. No Facebook notifications, no text messages, no honking cars, no screaming babies, no visual clutter. This is the place you need to be, whether you are there physically or mentally. Sometimes we cannot physically remove ourselves from a situation.

In this instance, you may create your own secret haven by building a wall, whether it is a wall of sound enforced by your headphones and relaxing music or a mental block that reminds you there is no reason to lash out or become emotionally disturbed by incessant noise, just let it pass by in the back of your mind. It is only a matter of focusing and the noise will fade away.

If you have the urge to take a premature break, imagine the joy you will feel from the break, but also remember the stress that will arise from ignoring your true task. The joy from falling prey to distractions is only temporary compared to the lasting satisfaction you will experience from completing your goal.

Good luck on all of your endeavors!
