5 Habits That Will Help You To Stay Focused

Focus and concentration are habits that can be trained. This article today will show you 5 habits that will help you to stay focused.

How many times have we heard “I can’t really concentrate today” being said? We all have days when we can’t focus on anything. There are many reasons for this: fatigue, distractions, lack of motivation and much more.

Whatever the reason, lack of concentration has consequences for our productivity. Therefore, if prolonged, it can jeopardize our success. Concentration is a mental habit. This means that people learn to concentrate. Concentration is acquired through years of training. It’s not difficult to learn how to stay focused.

We know that learning and remembering requires attention. You need to be careful. The secret to success is to be attentive and focused. Be careful and concentrate. If you want to stay focused, you need to develop the ability to pay attention to a particular task, thought or long-term goal.

“Stay focused, go after your dreams and keep moving toward your goals” [LL Cool J]
No matter what your current goal is that requires attention and concentration; if you train your mind to be focused you will be ready when your life and success will require more attention. To do so, just create some habits that will help you to stay focused.
Advice 01
Think About What You Want

The best way to develop concentration skills is to think intensely and deeply about what you really want. Think about what it might be like.

Think about what you will need in order to achieve your goal. Think about how you will feel when you actually achieve it.

Before anything else, you need to get used to thinking about what you want. And you have to do it fervently.

Advice 02
Change Your Mindset

As you create a new habit, consider everything you do as a behavioural experiment in which each setback gives you valuable data for your next step.

It takes your attention away from the ultimate and long-term goal. Focus on making each day your habit. This means that whatever you do every day you have to make it your habit, even if it’s the first time you’ve done it.

Some people put a red X on the calendar. It’s a great method. That way, you’ll see how much time you’ve invested on your habit. Don’t break the chain.

Advice 03
Create an If-Then Plan

Once you know your habit, create your plan of action using the If-Then logic.

The if/then path is a simple rationale such as: If (I see/hear/smell/do a certain action), then (I perform my new behaviour).

The If-Then Plan helps you maintain a new habit. The best way to achieve a goal is to have a strategic plan.

Advice 04
Design a Checklist

Don’t trust your memory. Create your checklist and put it in a visible place.

Create a checklist that you can tick as you progress towards your goal.

A checklist helps you to be organized and stay focused on the most important aspect of that moment.

Each time you perform your routine, you go through the steps in your head, out loud or physically through the stages.

Advice 05
Practice,Practice, Practice

Once you know what to do, put it into practice. Repetition strengthens the habitual cycle. The more you practice, the easier it will be.

Never forget to reward yourself. Prizes are fundamental in forming a habit. They reinforce the cycle.

Create a repertoire of small but rewarding rewards. Don’t give too much weight to extrinsic rewards. You know what you have to do. So, remember, one step at a time. One small change at a time.

As always, self-experimentation is the best solution. Put these habits into practice and you will realize which one is best for you.
