5 Ways to Stay Focused Throughout Your Work Day

 

We know that work is a huge part of your day and we wanted to provide you with a few awesome tips to help keep you focused.

GET UP AND WALK AROUND

GET ORGANIZED
When you go into "organized mode," everything seems to flow better. You don’t miss appointments, you are on time, you look professional, and you know where everything is you need to get your job done efficiently and effectively. The daunting feeling of “I really need to clean up and get organized” just isn’t necessary and will weigh you down! Learn how to get organized here: 10 Productive Tips for Organizing Your Work Life

HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE
Your attitude is the corner stone of how you perceive the world around you. If you have a negative attitude, everything you experience is going to be viewed through the filter of negativity. Conversely, when you have a positive attitude it will propel you to take on your work day with a positive outlook to tackle the challenges you may face in your day. Not only will this benefit your work tasks, but it will have a positive impact on your relationships around the office as well. There are many different tools to help maintain a positive attitude from praying to meditating, but we believe an attitude of gratitude is always a wonderful place to start!

SCHEDULE A BREATHER FROM YOUR DESK
Nobody likes to stay in one place for too long. You may be able to bust out 10 hours straight at your desk for a little while, but that is going to take its toll one you. If there is a park nearby or somewhere you can get up and watch around, then take a few minutes and get away. This will help you recharge, refocus, and give you a second wind to go dominate your work day!

DISCONNECT
We live in the technological era and just about everyone is connected to their smart phones on and off the clock. Whether it is answering emails during work to scrolling your social media feeds in your down time,  we are always “plugged in.” At some point in your day, try to disconnect. Turn off the phone and just absorb the word around you. It is always good to stop and smell the roses. 

Staying focused at work is a huge factor in having a happy and successful life. When we are not focused, we get bored and complacent, which can lead to being non-compliant in our Paleo or Whole30 lifestyle. Following these tips will help you power through your day!
