Focus On One Thing At A Time

Welcome to day 3 of the Mindfulness Challenge

We are masters of multitasking. Sometimes multitasking is a necessity, but whenever you can, try to focus on a single task at a time:

  • Be fully present for one patient.
  • Complete one to-do list item at 100%, instead of making headway on a little of each.
  • When speaking to a friend or colleague, fully listen to that person.
  • Let your child interrupt you when you’re doing something else. Enjoy the fact that they want your attention and try to enjoy giving it to them.

Let us know how you shift your focus throughout the course of the day? Let us know in the challenge updates section here, our private Facebook group, or on Twitter, or Instagram
