5 Surprising Tricks That Will Enhance Your Concentration

One of the biggest obstacles to being productive is the lack of focus. Distractions are everywhere these days, not just outside, but at home, and even in our heads. So we need to constantly watch out for them, do our best to prevent interruptions, and structure our days in the most effective way possible by managing our time well. But still, more focus would make a huge difference to how quickly we get things done and how accomplished we are at the end of the day. You’ve already heard some general tips on how to concentrate better, so here are a few ways to enhance your mind power that you probably don’t know about:


  1. 3 Do something completely different

    When 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.
  2. 4 Chew gum

    It’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.
