Day 9

“Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work in hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.” — Alexander Graham Bell



Welcome to Day 9 of the Mental Focus Challenge! Are you focusing more now that you’re combining challenges that improve your concentration? Are you noticing anything in your routine you can tweak?

Right now, you’re exploring different challenges throughout the day that’ll increase your focus and concentration. You’ve narrowed it down to two specific challenges, and that’s great! But now you have to figure out when and where you should perform these tasks. The rest of this week should be dedicated to completing your challenge combo and finding a routine that works for you.

Challenge of the Day: Complete Your Challenge Combo

You should continue completing your challenge combo. Slightly alter each challenge to find out what works for you. If 7.5 hours of sleep isn’t enough, try sleeping for 8.5 hours. Keep tweaking your challenges until you find what works.

You should also alter when and where you complete each challenge. These are some changes you can make:

  • Try meditating outside early in the morning.
  • Eat lunch in the break room instead of at your desk.
  • Declutter your bedroom to create a better sleeping environment.

Stay consistent with your challenge combo and keep making changes until you discover what makes you the most focused. The perfect balance of these challenges will make you more concentrated than you’ve ever been.
