There are a variety of factors affecting our focus and concentration skills today. For instance, always having our smartphones in our hands can be a problem. It's one of the biggest reasons for getting easily distracted. Even if we are not getting any calls or messages, we are constantly looking out for information. The fear of missing out, as it is said, keeps us away from focusing on our tasks or other matters.
With so many distractions around and an increase in screen time, our attention span and focus are going downhill day by day. Other factors may include having too much on your plate. There are so many tasks to complete, that you don't want to get started in the first place. And other than that, even if you are all set to work, a noisy environment can make things work.
First things first, you need to understand where your mental focus stands. Some problematic signs can include not being able to take short and scheduled breaks properly and not being able to set realistic goals. If you are facing any of these problems, then it's time to start honing those mental focus skills. The easiest way is to engage in brain-boggling activities like jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles, word search games, and many more. It's better if you go for books or the hard copy format for such puzzles, as playing them on your phone can cause distractions.
Make sure to keep to maintain a healthy diet, get proper sleep each night, as well as move around a bit, and perform some daily exercises and meditation.
