“Repetition of the same thought or physical action develops into a habit which, repeated frequently enough, becomes an automatic reflex.” — Norman Vincent Peale
Welcome to Day 7 of the Mental Focus Challenge! How was your cleaning session yesterday? Have you been more focused after cleaning your work area? Does the lack of clutter make you more productive?
Today is the last day of the first week of the Mental Focus Challenge. I hope this past week has taught you more about yourself and what makes you tick. Today’s challenge is all about developing habits that’ll make you more focused and productive.
Unfortunately, these habits can’t be developed overnight. It’ll take hard work and a lot of repetition. This leads us to today’s challenge!
A lot was thrown at you for this week’s challenges. Some of them might have worked, and some of them might’ve had no affect on you. That’s fine! Today’s challenge is to pick two challenges from this past week that made you more focused, and commit to them next week.
You should focus on combining both challenges throughout the day. For example, let’s say you were more focused after getting 7.5 hours of sleep and meditating for ten minutes. Today, you should sleep for around eight hours, and then in the middle of the day, you should meditate for fifteen minutes.
By combining two challenges that worked, you will start to create a daily routine that optimizes your focus. Now you’re drastically improving your chances of remaining focused during the entire day!
Since you’re starting to juggle more challenges, you’re going to want to stay organized by planning your day. Google Calendar is a premier calendar app where you can set reminders throughout the day. You’ll get a notification sent to your phone before each one!
