During a time when it seems there are more distractions than ever, you may find yourself continually getting off course. Whether you’re working remotely and juggling Zoom calls while overseeing your children’s remote learning, or if you’re in the office and getting distracted with social media or the news, it’s common to lose focus throughout the day. One way to combat that is through mindfulness. Now if you’re intimidated by that idea don’t be. It’s simply being present and fully engaged with what you are doing in the moment. Here are some quick mindfulness tips that will go a long way in boosting your productivity and improving your focus.

Clear Your Head and Go for a Walk

Sometimes one of the best ways to reset is to change your environment, head outside and go for a quick walk. If you’re in the office, take a short 5-minute break and go for a walk around your office building. If you’re working remotely, schedule a walk or two to break up your day; ideally before you begin work, on your lunch break, or at the end of the day. You don’t need long to reap the benefits of a little fresh air and sunshine.

Have a Change of Scenery
It’s important to give your eyes a rest from your computer screen, especially if you’re working on something like spreadsheets, so remember to look up from your screen regularly. If you have a nice view outside, take a minute to look out and appreciate the seasons changing. If you don’t have a window nearby, keep photos or a painting at your desk that you love and transport yourself briefly to the positive memories those mementos take you.

Write It Out
If you find yourself frazzled, it can be helpful to keep a journal where you’re able to jot down what is on your mind. This should bring clarity and help you better focus on the task at hand. Many also find it helpful to keep a to-do list, noting the most important tasks they need to accomplish. For some though, this may not be enough, which brings us to the next tip.

Practice Time Blocking
With time blocking, you schedule your day into intervals where each block of time is dedicated to accomplishing a certain task. It’s a step further then a to-do list, and not only tells you what you need to do, but when you are going to do it. Having a concrete schedule can save you from distractions and by focusing on one task at a time, you’ll be more productive and less stressed.

Meditate or Focus on Your Breath
With a variety of methods and techniques, many find meditation and/or breathwork to be very beneficial. One extremely simple, yet effective, breath method is to take a slow breath in through your nose, breathing in the air from your belly rather than your chest. Once you’ve breathed in, pause for a moment before slowly exhaling the air through your mouth. Repeat this as many times as needed. Even 3 rounds of this breath work should leave you feeling much calmer.

Everyone can benefit from being more mindful and staying present and aware of the moment they are in. We hope these tips are helpful for you and bring more focus, less stress, and more enjoyment to your work day.
