3 Simple Ways To Regain Focus
As I was looking through my notification, 100th post popped up. It took a minute for me to process that I have actually hit this milestone. When I began blogging, I didn’t have a clue as to actually what blogging was all about. I had heard of it but didn’t know what it really entail. All I knew is that I wanted to create a platform that would encourage others.
My husband has been very supportive. I had doubts about blogging but he was and still is my number one encourager/cheerleader along with my sister. They consistently encourage and motivate me. If I were to say that this journey has been easy, I would be lying but it has been rewarding. It has cause me to grow as a person in all areas of my life. I have met some wonderful people through blogging and for that I am grateful.
With all that being said, sometimes you can lose focus when working on accomplishing goals. Life happens or you are bombarded with additional duties in life. Since I blog about inspiring, motivation, and encouragement, I have been learning how to stay in check with my inner self. In a perfect world, focus would be on point all the time but this is not a perfect world.
Lately, I recognized that I had lost focus. I don’t know exactly the moment it happened but it did. I found myself in a blank zone standing still without direction. I didn’t know what to do next. I didn’t know what to write next. I just didn’t know.
So, I had to make some steps toward getting myself back on track. I had to regain my focus. I used these 3 ways to help me regain focus.
1. Turn off the noise.
2. Feed my mind the nutrients that it needs.
3. Identify my Why.
I had to find a time to just turn off the noise of life and give myself space to clear my mind so I can feed it what it was lacking. I began to set aside time for only step 2. I realized that the most important thing that I was running low on was positive, inspiring, & uplifting words in my mind. I started thinking about the body and how we are told to feed our body nutrients, positive and uplifting words are like nutrients for the mind.
If we don’t give our mind the necessary nutrients, we are not able to function at the best level. I had to get a refill because I was near empty. Who am I kidding? I was on “E.” I went to my bible, back to blog posts that I had written, other blogs, inspiring books, & encouraging quotes/words.
As I was getting my fill up, I began to feel renewed and rejuvenated. This gave me a clear and embracing mind to identify and receive my “Why”. Why am I doing what I am doing? What am I trying to accomplish for me and my family?
After I finished the steps to regain focus, I was ready to regroup and get back on track. I also looked back at the notification of the 100th post and I got excited!!
It doesn’t matter if we lose focus as long as we can identify it, regain it, and keep it moving.
How do you regain focus?
