5 Ways Moms Can Keep Their Mind Focused
I have been compensated by ZonePerfect® for this post; however I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own. #Ad #ZonePerfectRevitalize
Prior to becoming a mom I had an incredibly sharp mind. I was always eager to learn something new and highly focused on the task at hand. I feel now that I can never keep my mind still. I am always thinking about emails to answer, where the kids need to go, how I am going to get things done, what’s for dinner, random thoughts and more. Besides being a mom, I am also a social media manager, blogger, PTO Treasurer, and cub scout co-leader. There is always something I need to get done. On top of that, we live in a highly distracting world!
So how can you keep your mind focused?
→ As a creative person, I have learned when I need get those tasks done: first thing in the morning when my mind is fresh. This includes cooking, photography, and writing. I save tedious tasks for later in the day.
→ Work on the task at hand. Like many mothers, I spend most of my day multitasking. While it’s a great skill, I find I often leave my work undone or not done to its full potential. I now sit down to complete a task and only that task! The key to this for me is making lists and checking things off when tasks are done to completion!
→ Keep your mind active. There is more than just work. I’ve found that by giving my mind a break from concentrating on the things I “have” to do and enjoying something that I “want” to do, I am able to focus a lot better. That includes reading, coloring, puzzles, exercising and more.
→ Get rid of the distractions and FOMO! Shut down Facebook, turn your notifications off, exit out of the emails. We live in a life full of FOMO (fear of missing out), I can assure you all of those notifications will be there when you are ready for them!
→ Keep your mind and body sharp throughout the day with ZonePerfect® Revitalize for Mental Focus Bars.
