Improve Focus at Work as we Round Off 2020
We all thought by now that the 'Zoom' calls would be just a temporary thing! In reality, they are still very much around and staring at a screen all day with little actual human interaction in our working day can have a direct effect on our productivity.
Being able to demonstrate the same work ethic from our living room with the kids screaming, as when we were sat peacefully behind our desk with constant tea and biscuit breaks is very tasking.
Finding a way to combat this and improve our memory, focus and attention span can be challenging. Memory retention and mental processing that doesn't involve drinking an obscene amount of coffee each day can feel very out of reach. However, there are a couple of actions we can take to make sure to improve our working day.
Don’t be afraid to take regular breaks. Science shows that frequent-break-takers productivity levels are much higher than those who don’t take any and even work through lunch. Taking these breaks can help us to not get bored and therefore will help our focus when we are working. Stop feeling guilty for taking a break and on the reverse feel good about ourselves as we are most likely to improve our work outcome. We can even put them into our calendar to remind us to take them.
Nootropics have been nicknamed, ‘smart drugs’ so what exactly do these clever little supplements do? They improve various aspects of cognition such as enhancing our focus and helping with memory retention. The Beautifully Nourished Nootropic Supplement features ingredient Guarana Extract which may reduce mental and physical fatigue, Gingko Biloba extract, which may positively affect energy, mood and memory. Taking this twice a day could help us navigate the chaos of 2020 and give us more focus in the working day. The supplement also contains amino acids; L-Taurine, L-Carnitine, L-Arginine and Choline Bitartrate which can help to enhance cognitive functions such as memory, focus, mental performance and alertness. The best thing about it is that it is all natural. Sounds too good to be true, right?
There is strong evidence that moving our body regularly improves our memory whilst also improving your heart health. Whether it be in the form of yoga, following home work out video or a short run around the block - get that body moving!
Drink water regularly. Water is essential to ensuring our brain gets all the nutrients it needs to concentrate. One glass of water in the morning won’t be sufficient to keep our brain hydrated. Keep a bottle with us at all times to prompt us to keep drinking throughout the day.
