Concentration - 5 Powerful Tips to be More Efficient at Work

You have your to-do list ready for the day, but your in-box is loaded. Your boss is asking for a special report immediately. There is an urgent phone call to make right away. How do you juggle all these tasks with your fullest concentration? Here are the top tips:

  1. Sufficient Sleep: One of the factors that contributes to your razor sharp concentration is when you have enough sleep. Sufficient rest recharges your battery and provides you with the energy to tackle a day’s work.

  1. Do one thing at a time: You can’t do two things at a time, can you? While you are busy with your work your mind is thinking of so many thing to do. The best thing is that you write down all the things in your mind and prioritize them. In this way you mind is free of clutter so that you can focus on the task at hand.

  1. Take a break: As the day goes by your concentration capability reduces. So, it is good to take a break, such as a tea break. A short break will restore your power of concentration when you go back to your workstation.

  1. Working environment: Make sure that there is no noise disturbance. Your table is tidy and pleasing to you eyes. A messy desk will disturb you mind and also your concentration. Get rid of unnecessary items on your table. Ensure that there is sufficient lighting at your workplace for you to work comfortably.

  1. Do not eat and work: You think you can save time by eating and working at the same time? You are wrong. When you are not concentrating on eating you may overeat because your mind is not sending you the correct signal to tell you that you are full. It is an unhealthy habit. Go out to have your lunch but eat slowly and chew each mouthful.
