Concentration and Focus

How well can you successfully concentrate on this picture for one minute?

Studies show that the attention span of an average, modern-day adult changes 6-10 times per minute! With the blessing of technology comes a problem: decreased attention span. Increasingly, people expect themselves and others to multi-task, a skill that most humans are not very capable of doing very skillfully.

What’s more, decreased attention span leads to decreased work performance, safety concerns and loss of quality in relationships. Here are some suggestions to increase your attention span in order to up-level any attention span issues:

  • Stillness/Meditation- instituting a daily practice, even if it’s for only for 5 minutes, can produce great results.
  • Technology Timeouts- wait 30-minutes to an hour upon awakening before you pick up your phone, get on your computer, or turn on the television. Put away all technology 30 minutes to an hour before bed. Strike a balance throughout your day with your cell phone. The average American adult checks their cell phone every 12 minutes and most people can only go 10 minutes before they check it!
  • Practice focusing exclusively on one thing at a time: whether a person, work task, or activity (like driving!)

If you were able to concentrate on the picture for one minute, and read this all the way through, all is not lost! (lol).   Keep up the great work!

Faith Over Fear

Fear negatively impacts health, blocks creativity and lowers performance. Fear internally constricts your body and mind. Faith, on the other hand, relaxes the body and mind. Fear results in an ineffective, iron grip. Faith is an expansive state and results in better health, improved creativity and improved performance.  Which are you feeding? Faith or fear?
