Direct Your Attention To The Things That Matter.

We juggle multiple tasks at one time not getting anything done. You lose focus easily and get overwhelmed with so many things to do. Distractions seem to be everywhere and that makes it nearly impossible to accomplish anything.

But we know it, it’s the end of the day and you have not accomplished anything. It can be discouraging.

Time is a very important resource. Once it slips out of your hands, there is no way you can get it back.

We can have all the time in the world, but if our attention is on to many things, we cannot get the results we desire.

Where focus goes, energy goes.

The brain is a powerful thing that is capable of processing loads of information. It controls your behavior depending on how you shape it. It has magnified qualities that are capable of rewiring connections to strengthen new habits and weaken poor behaviors.

It has the vulnerability that can affect your performance and productivity, it very sensitive to interference or being distracted

But the good thing is we can train our brains to do what is necessary to have better results and to become more positive though a few steps.

Observe your thoughts.

Scan for 3 daily positives.

Help others.

Surround yourself with positive people.

Look after your body and mind.

Subconscious re-training and your inner healing.

It is said that the brain can have anywhere from 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day.

Our brains are not designed to create happiness as much as we wish it were so. Our brains we’re evolved to promote survival. It saves the chemicals for opportunities to meet a survival need, and only releases them in short spurts and are quickly metabolized. This motivates us to keep taking steps that stimulate our happy chemicals.

When our brains go negative it can eat away at our productivity, creativity, and decision-making skills.

We have to work to change our brains negatively. We have to constantly bring positive thoughts or actions to our life.

Look for the good, and leave out the bad.

I read something positive every day. I pray daily, I put myself with positive people every day.

A great idea is to get yourself a jar or a bowl and every day write the positive things that happened to you during that day. Then when you’re having a difficult day, go back the read the positive things that has been happening.

We tend to focus more on negative things than positive things. This will teach you to look for the positive things happening in your day.

I still do this practice during Thanksgiving and Christmas. The holidays can be stressful. I feel like I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

It makes for a great time to do with family or friends. I used to do this will a depression support group I was facilitating. We would have a party and everyone would share what they had written and put in their jar the last 2 weeks. It’s a diffanant morale lifter.
