When you learn to focus on one thing, you can learn to focus on anything.
How do I do this?
Simple; do the 4 steps below:
- Turn off all distractions.
- Find an image in your immediate surroundings.
- Set your phone timer for 2 minutes.
- Focus only on the chosen image.
When your mind wanders, (and it will), don’t feel bad….just bring your focus back to the image. Over and over…until the 2 minutes conclude.
Good job. The more you do this, the easier focus will become. This is a tool that can be used for focused performance as well as beginning meditation.
Good luck. Drop a line and let me know how it goes.
You so got this.
