Archive for the ‘focus’ Category

Mindfulness is defined as paying attention and being fully in the moment.  Multi-tasking cannot be included in this definition, as most people cannot fully focus on more than one thing at a time.  The influence of technology in our fast paced world has often caused the problem of lack of focus on a particular task.  This has translated into the modern workplace, especially those who are not used to the fastest paced technology. Those used to it, mostly millennials, often inadvertently miss important details. In our modern often chaotic world, frustration levels rise quickly, giving way to stress and anger.  Impatience and frustration often go hand-in-hand.  A workplace culture of mindfulness, geared to all generations and cultures can be beneficial to all.

Another tool that is helpful in focusing as well as to reduce stress and anger is EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), also known as tapping.  It is recognized in the field of Energy Psychology and has become globally popular.  The physical tapping on meridian points releases cortisol, a stress hormone and sends serotonin – a feel good hormone – to the section of the brain dealing with emotions, the amygdala. Most of us are not born with the recommended amount of serotonin for optimal functioning and it may be found as an ingredient in some anti-depressants.

Here are a few additional tips to help focus in the workplace:

  • Stay on task by not reading emails throughout the day; have two specific times to check and designate some to be addressed at a future time
  • Keep cell phone sound off
  • Take frequent stretch breaks, being “mindful of physical toll of computer and phones.
  • Keep a “worry list” to address late afternoon each day for ten minutes.

Teaching the tenets of mindfulness  and tapping  to enhance focus and reduce stress and anger are indeed indicated in our modern day workplace.  Mindful meditation and simple relaxation techniques are helpful in creating a mindfulness practice, so practice sessions for this and EFTtapping may be implemented so that these tools will succeed in increasing focus and reducing stress and anger in the workplace.

At your core is a reservoir of very positive energy, a world of quiet and stillness, and innate qualities of goodness, peace and love. This is your true inner self.  Through this time of global turmoil, it is helpful to retreat into your inner sanctuary several times a day when possible or at least once daily.   We can’t always go to the ocean or a forest, but can always go to the oasis of peace inside of ourselves. This creates well being, and lets go of a sense of overwhelm and helplessness that many are feeling.  Instead, you can feel calm, focused and empowered.  When any situations come, just go deep into your inner sanctuary, your reservoir of quiet and stillness  – an oasis of peace.  No matter how you feel, you can change simply by shifting into inner focus.

Notice that thoughts are slowing down as you move deeper into quietness and stillness in the guided meditation below.  Nothing to fear.  No worries.  Let thoughts just dissolve into space, as you move deeper and deeper into your inner being of quietness, stillness, peace.  This is your inner sanctuary.  

So…now get comfortable in your chair or lying down. Relax your body while staying alert.  Take a deep breath in through nose, belly expanding before chest. Exhale nose or mouth, belly deflating last.  Take another long slow deep breath,  paying attention to this feeling for a few moments.  When thoughts pop up, just gently bring the mind back to the breath, letting the thoughts go. Picture them just floating away on a cloud or down a stream.  If it is an important thought, just gently tell yourself to put it aside for now and that you’ll give it full attention after meditation. 

Release any tension in your body,  envisioning each part of your body, one at a time, starting with toes, and first tighten and tense, and then relax and let go of each muscle, all the up to your jaw and eyes. Take a deep breath and let out a loud sigh. 

And now relax your mind and let go of tense feelings and worry, beginning to feel light and calm. Envision a beautiful healing white light of positive energy entering your whole body as you breathe in, and the darkness of any tension, irritation, disappointment, or any negativity, being blown out and disappearing as you exhale.  Let everything of the day, the past, the future, just go.  When thoughts come, acknowledge them, and then watch them float by, and come back to your breath and to relaxing your body.  Breathe in relaxation – breathe out tension…letting all stress just slip away.

 Now, very slowly, prepare to return back to the awareness of your body, the chair you’re sitting on, the room. You feel very calm – relaxed and filled with peace.  Cherish and hold on to this feeling throughout the day.

Focus is one of the keys to success and necessary to be on your game.

Many people find it hard to focus, but it is a skill you can develop.  Do you know you can rewire negative patterns?? Try these suggestions for improving your focus:

  • Stop multitasking.  Research shows that dividing attention across multiple activities is taxing on the brain, and can often come at the expense of real productivity.  There is a small percentage of “supertaskers” out there, probably not you.
  • Train your brain. .   Invest time in mastering attention training or meditation — both are great ways to practice taming distractions and improving focus.  Any skill worth having requires practice; time well spent.
  • Screen out distractions. Start by turning off the TV, putting down your phone and logging out of email. 
  • Invest in Your Peak Time  .  When is your energy at it’s peak?  Plan your work for those times and use your less energetic times for leisure or a nap.
  •  Create off site storage for mental notes and unfinished business. Too many mental notes make for a cluttered mind.. Put whatever’s on your mind on paper or capture it digitally.
  • Revisit prioritizing and SMART Goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely.  It’s your game!  Give yourself permission to change your mind and prioritize differently- in life and in business.
  • “Start with the end in mind. ” ― Stephen R. Covey, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change
  • Visualize positive outcomes in your meditative time.
  • Learn EFT to help create new habits, increase focus, clarity and be on your game!Image

Hi Everyone!

Success and Happiness are basic human rights…
Unfortunately, there is a part of the population that blocks success and happiness.  I’m not talking about governments now, but individuals- “bullies”- and as children/youth bullies  grow up to  become adult  bullies, often criminal in nature.   No matter what age, there are several common characteristics among bullies and extremely angry people:

  • Poor or no self-esteem
  • Poor or no self-love
  • Shame
  • Poor communication skills

Several years ago, I became a certified anger management specialist/educator and work with court mandated  as well as individuals and groups who are truly motivated to learn how to release anger and stress in appropriate ways and have happier, more successful lives.

The other side of the spectrum are the victims.  Those who have been bullied , physically and/or emotionally abused have a lot in common:

  • Poor or no self-esteem
  • Poor or no self-love
  • Depression or Anger
  • Difficulty focusing

I am co-facilitating groups this summer http://www.jamieisaacsfoundation.org  in Long Island for young people who are bullying survivors.  These are  support groups as well as for suicide prevention.  Much of the curriculum is from my book/manual SOAR! with Resilience™ 
I am continuing to run small groups in Wantagh, Long Island on the second and fourth Saturday AM of each month for angry/and or stressed individuals.
