10 Tiny Daily Habits to Help You Achieve Peak Focus and Productivity
Focus is a superpower in today’s distracted world
Today, the average person has an 8-second attention span and checks their smartphone a whopping 344 times a day!
Once distracted, it can take up to 23 minutes to regain peak focus — so the majority have 24/7 shattered focus.
Amidst this sea of distracted, low-efficiency workers, a sharp focus is an unfair advantage—that can help you beat even smarter people.
“I don’t care how much power, brilliance or energy you have. If you don’t harness it and focus it on a specific target, you’re never going to accomplish much.”
— Zig Ziglar
I want to share 10 tiny daily habits to sharpen your focus—and also boost other areas of your productivity.
The Cheapest (And Best) Productivity Hack out There
Airplane mode — or DND for my less extreme brethren.
This will knock down your daily phone check-ins from the alarming average of 344 to 34 — then to 3 or 4 times a day.
Thanks to our beeping-phone addiction, a silent phone can initially be nerve-racking. But bear with it — that anxiety will morph into peaceful bliss.
Instagram DMs can wait — your dreams and goals can’t.
At Least 5 Minutes of Sweating It Out
Working out is physically exhausting — but mentally rejuvenating.
Research has proven that exercise boosts your cognitive function and reduces anxiety. By releasing endorphins, it boosts your happiness as well.
The combined result is a healthier, happier, and more productive Homo Sapien.
Exercise needn’t mean killing yourself in the gym — a run with your dog, biking under a green canopy, a quick bodyweight workout, or a brisk park stroll works.
