“If I train well and stay focused, I’m confident I can deliver when the time comes.” — Ashley Wagner
It’s Day 10 of the Mental Focus Challenge! I hope you’re staying consistent with your challenges. Remember that the end goal is to become more focused, so don’t give up! Let’s get to today’s challenge.
Challenge of the Day: Complete Your Challenge Combo
You should continue to complete the challenge combo that you chose on Day 7. At this point, you have established two challenges that improve your focus. Keep completing these challenges every day!
Doing the same thing every day can be tiring. The tasks can grow stale and you won’t be motivated to complete them. This will lead to your focus decreasing, and you don’t want that to happen.
If you find yourself becoming bored with the challenges, then you might have to change up your routine. Changing your routine encourages creativity in your brain and helps you discover tools you didn’t know you had. Change can give you that extra boost you need to get through the day.
Here are some ways you can change your routine with these challenges:
- Complete your challenge at a different time of the day.
- Complete your challenge at a different location.
- One day you can focus more on one challenge, and the next day spend more time on the other challenge.
- Complete your challenge with other people.
The smallest alteration of your routine can be enough to revitalize your motivation to complete your challenges.
