Learn and work better – meditation and motor skills
Meditation is the ideal pause that helps us calm our thoughts and remove any distractions. Studies also show that the hippocampus, which is responsible for memory and learning processes in the brain, grows through regular meditation. We explain here how you can learn meditation – it’s worth taking a look to increase your concentration!
If you sit slumped in your desk chair for hours, you not only damage your muscles and risk neck and back pain, your mental focus on the current task also quickly fades. Slight movements cushion the effect of decreasing concentration – it is often enough to get up for a few minutes for short breaks and walk around or change your sitting position. Also effective: extensive stretching. You stretch your arms and legs straight and thereby pull yourself apart as far as possible.
Avoid multitasking and smartphones
Even if many people like to brunt about mastering multitasking – it is not particularly suitable for concentrated and, above all, error-free work, because you have to distribute your attention to several tasks at the same time. It’s better to concentrate on one task and, for example, only check emails once an hour.
Looking at the smartphone from time to time while working is now part of our lifes. The permanent availability primarily puts us under pressure and stress. In order to be able to really work with concentration, cell phone breaks are indispensable. The best thing to do is to simply put the smartphone in the drawer in silent mode and allow yourself to be checked a maximum of once an hour. This improves concentration immediately.
Have you tried meditation yet? Tell me what your experience was like and whether you were able to improve your concentration with it. I’ve tried a few things to improve my alertness, but not really with success. Still, I somehow manage to concentrate on my collection ‘Ruthless Quotes‘ – maybe it’s because of the cheeky sayings.
