Improve Your Focus with this Amazing Technique!

How can you improve your focus to reach your goals? There are several methods you can experiment with to improve your focus and mental capabilities. First off, create a quiet environment by enabling yourself to breathe in sequence with your mind; you can do this by remaining still and unattached to any thoughts. For instance, head off into a quiet area of your house and take a deep breath in, then slowly hold this breath for a few seconds before you slowly exhale. Focus on your breathing and concentrate on how you are able to control your breath. Any thoughts you may have can interfere with this process, so be certain you reduce any distractions.

The Power of Breathing

Did you know that 70% of waste is eliminated by your lungs, and that’s just by breathing! The method of breathing exercises is greatly used for a sense of calmness that will relax your mind and body.

Mindfulness

In fact, air contains 21% oxygen and the human body only needs 5%. The rest comes from carbon dioxide. Breathing exercises are used quite often in athletes and in meditation techniques all over the Nation! So, take some time out and pay attention to how you feel when you breathe in sync with your body–Create Mindfulness!

Neuro Tests that Challenge You

Yes, these brain training exercises really do help you by stimulating certain areas of the brain. As we’ve all read in articles and so forth, training your brain with brain games can increase your focus. Brain games can improve concentration, cognition, and reaction time. There are many helpful websites that offer free training such as Neuronation, luminosity, and Brain Games

Another amazing strategy that contains useful brain exercises to help overcome various problems and reactions to stress is called Neuroplasticity!

REDUCE YOUR STRESS LEVELS

Fear and high levels of stress can wreak havoc on your nervous system; however, you can reduce the amount of stress on your nervous system by practicing and strengthening your inner calm with someone who helps you to regulate your inner calmness; tune into that other person and synchronize your breathing with theirs until you receive a calmness of energy. It is important that you conduct breathing exercises with someone who is a positive conduit.

Read Quality Books

One of my favorite activities to do throughout the day is to read a good book. Set aside some time to read your book, or books then write down your thoughts about the novel to retain some important facts.

A number of good books can help you remain better focused and apt to continue reading by developing a good habit. However, be careful about what types of books you seek out to read, be aware of novels that remain bias. Moreover, there are a number of great, thought-provoking books such as Plato, Socrates, Sigmund Freud and other fascinating, exceptional “reads” on philosophy, psychology, and even science!

3 Helpful Tips:

Tip#1 Breathing exercises daily, set a time to focus on mindfulness, even 10-15 minutes of daily meditation is helpful! Tip#2 Nero-training and online brain games, or board games can help you better focus! Tip #3 Read a thought-provoking book that enhances your learning experience and improves your mindset.

  1. Great advice! I am working on improving my focus by reading more each day and taking some omega supplements, seems to help with working out too.

  2. Interesting read, thank you.
    I used to wonder how effective these techniques could be in helping someone improve their focus. The power of breathing technique, for example, never worked for me, but after reading this post I understand that I should have practiced with someone.
    Do the techniques cited here also work when a person gets emotional, such as when they’re angry?

    • Hi Princella! Thank you for your comment! Great question! Regarding your question: Yes, you can use these techniques to relieve stress, anxiety, and even anger, just as long as you allow yourself to take a moment to pause & reflect on what may have caused the certain emotion to occur. A shift of consciousness needs to occur to help relieve strong emotions such as anger. Meditation is a good method to help with that! 

      Again, thank you for taking the time to comment on my article!
