How mindfulness can improve our focus and productivity ? By practicing a daily mindfulness session, as simple as watching your breath, noticing when your mind has wandered off, letting go of the wandering thought and bringing it back to your breath again.
These movements of the mind are like a mental workout, the equivalent of repetitions in lifting free weights: every rep strengthens the muscle a bit more. In mindfulness what gets stronger are the brain’s circuits for noticing when your mind has wandered, letting go, and returning to your chosen focus. And that’s just what we need to stay with during that one important task we’re working on.
If you keep dabbling due to commitments and so on. Meditation, breathing and mindfulness session could bring you back to the right track. Try it.
