There’s something most of us struggled with pre-pandemic, and it has only gotten worse since: The ability to focus. So why is this happening, and what can we do about it?
Habits to help you focus
Before getting to food, there are some tips you can do to help stay focused. First, make sure you’re limiting the amount of tasks you intend to get done in one day. Nobody needs an endless list of to-dos, and this is actually counterproductive to getting things done—especially the things that matter most. You can also use the Pomodoro technique to keep yourself focused: Break down your focus sessions into 25 minute chunks, and give yourself a five minute break between to catch up on your distractions. Focusing in short chunks is much easier to do, and you’ll be amazed at how much you can get done in a few 25 minute blocks.
Sleep and stress
Getting the proper amount of sleep and avoiding stress are key to helping you focus. To help manage your stress, adaptogens can work wonders in fighting both stress and fatigue. CBD is also a helpful supplement for both sleep and stress. It’s important to take a B complex because they work together and too much of one can create an imbalance.
MCT oil has a ton of brain-boosting benefits, and can easily be added to smoothies, coffees, or tea. B-vitamins are also great for brain boosting, energy production, and stress management. Lion’s mane is also fantastic for brain function and memory. Protein, in general, is also important.
