It’s not easy to maintain mental focus in the modern world. We’re constantly bombarded with distractions and it can be difficult to stay focused on what is important, even for just a few minutes at a time. But that doesn’t mean you should give up! It simply means that you need help staying focused and productive. This article will provide four tips to maintaining your mental focus so you can get more done in less time, every day!
Researchers are looking for ways to help people maintain healthy cognitive function as they age. In one study of 2,832 older adults who completed between 10 and 14 sessions of brain training games over the course of a year or more had improved cognition, memory skills, and processing speed ten years later after completion. The majority reported that their daily activity level was at least as good if not better than it was before participating in the trial when measured against themselves from time 0 (when participants began).
In today’s fast-paced world, many people are not getting enough sleep. In fact, it has been found that lack of sleep is linked to poor brain health and performance! The best way to help your body rest more deeply is by improving the quality of your sleep; for example: keeping a regular bedtime routine (such as turning off electronics two hours before you go to bed), practicing good “sleep hygiene” habits such as avoiding caffeine after noon or alcohol in the evening, taking naps during times when sleeping would be normal – like on weekends or days off from work if possible).
Meditation may be another way to assist in improving your mental focus, and has been shown to promote a sense of calmness. It is also beneficial for physical health – meditation can help regulate the immune system (helping with colds), reduce inflammation levels, increase cardiovascular endurance, lower blood pressure, improve respiratory function and even produce more melatonin!
Meditation should take just 20 minutes per day before bedtime as research suggests that meditation promotes better sleep quality than any other non-medication strategies used by people who suffer from insomnia.
The best meditation practice is one that you enjoy; try different types if you don’t find an approach that feels right for you at first.
