Have you ever used an old android phone?
What happens when you have too many applications running on a phone?
- The processing of the phone becomes slow, or
- It may even hang abruptly; or
- You might have to restart the phone;
Well, we have to admit, a similar logic applies to the human brain. We, humans, go through a lot of experiences and stresses in course of our daily routine. This makes the processing of any new information slow. That information may remain untouched by our brain and we would tend to completely forget it.
The solution to this is exactly the way we do solve the phone problem. We have got to close all the applications running in the mind.
How? Here are Tips on How to Become More Alert and Attentive to Your Learning Needs.
Meditation helps us to settle our conscious brain. A settled brain will classify all the information we receive in the day into groups. This will help you prioritize the unnecessary things that are occupying space in your brain. Thus, enabling you to process more data.
Secondly, meditation helps our mind to relax. An average human needs 6-8 hours of sleep a day. However, when we sleep with our mind full of thoughts; this leads to incomplete sleep and tiredness that carries on to the next day. Meditation closes our “mind’s application”. It helps us to get better sleep which in turn helps our body and brain to function better.
Set Daily Goals
Get organized by dividing your day into goals, each with a clear purpose. Think of this as a detailed to-do list of prioritized daily tasks. Keeping a to-do list is the simplest and easiest proven tool to ensure you stay focused and increase your productivity. Set reasonable targets for each day. All you need to get organized is a pen and paper, or even just an app on your smartphone.
First Things First
You only have so much time and energy, and chances are you will never have enough of both to accomplish everything you need to do every day. What you need to do is focus on the most important tasks first. Not everything on your list is urgent.
Take a moment to identify your Most Important Task (MIT). This is the most critical thing you must get done; get it off your plate first thing. By knocking out your biggest task, you will ensure that you will have a productive day no matter what.
Classify Your Time
Zoom through your tasks by giving yourself some “do not disturb” time. Tell those you work with that you won’t be available for meetings or appointments during this time. Carving out focus time minimizes interruptions so you can engage in deep work.
Classifying your time allows your brain to isolate a task, so you can completely focus on that one thing without constantly breaking your concentration for something else.
