3 Do something completely differentWhen you’re about to get to work and can’t seem to focus, just go do something else for a while. That tip doesn’t make sense until you give it a try. It’s similar to the idea generation process, where you can come up with more ideas when you stop thinking about it. So whenever you’re distracted, instead of trying too hard to concentrate on your task, go out for a walk, have a quick workout, have a quick chat, call a friend, declutter your room or put some music on and dance for a few minutes. When you get back to what you were doing, you’ll find it easier to concentrate and will feel fresh and be in a better mood.
4 Chew gumIt’s proven to improve our mind and productivity and help us focus for longer. According to a study at the Cardiff University, gums are quite practical when you’re facing a continuous activity. So the next time you need to work on something that’s either boring or takes too long, chew gum and keep your focus.
