Tasks can easily overwhelm us especially when there are so many things to do and very little time to get it done. We try hard to remember every single thing we need to do and we end up forgetting them all. How to deal with this? Empty your mind.
It does not take long to do this particular exercise. Even 5 minutes is good enough. Begin by listing the tasks you need to do then look for a quiet corner. Detach yourself and empty your mind. Allow your thoughts to flow right in front of you. You become an observer. You just sit in peace and let your thoughts calmly flow. Mastering this exercise is truly helpful as it allows you to release stress and improve focus in no time.

Exercises That Strengthen Concentration

These are exercises that strengthen concentration. At the start, the exercise may seem difficult. Once you get used to it, you will find it very easy to do. Do this twice each day for 5 to 10 minutes. Think of a certain object and keep it in your mind. Go for objects that are easy to visualize just like a pencil. Start by closing your eyes then create an image of the object in your mind. Stay focus for 5 to 10 minutes.

Visualization

It is a powerful method of getting your tasks done. You simply have to think of all your tasks and visualize them being accomplished. It helps you master tasks and ultimately accomplish a good job physically.
Try to visualize yourself being calm and happy. Visualize that you are talking to a room full of people or winning games. Doing this often allows you to start seeing good results in the activities that you perform each day.
These exercises are easy to do. Even if they may seem challenging at the beginning, they are definitely worth the effort. In no time you will have better focus and concentration. So spend a couple of minutes each day to perform these exercises. Before you know it, you already have excellent concentration and you can easily “get in the zone” when you want to.

“Time once spent, never comes around”

Everybody loves to have more free time, which is quite ironic because that’s what a lot of people seem to be lacking these days. They all seem to always be in a rush to do this and that, to go here and there, only to complain at the end of the day that they don’t have enough time to do all the things they need to do. Is it possible to increase the hours in a day just so you can have extra time in getting things accomplished? Well, we all know what the answer to that question is, but the good news is you don’t really need magic hours to give you longer days, all you need is to learn about these three time management tips to always be on top of your game.

Make a List and Check It Twice

“Manage time with a simple Checklist”

“Manage time with a simple Checklist”

It’s hard enough that you need to do fifteen different things all throughout the day, but everything just becomes a tad bit more difficult when you don’t practice good organizational skills. Start by creating a list of the tasks you need to do from the most important to the least important. If you’ll be running errands in between, make sure that you list everything down according to the proximity of the places you’ll be going to. Not only will you be saving time by planning a route where everything will literally be on your way as you tick off thing already accomplished from your list (you’ll get home earlier!), you’re also going to save on gas in the process.

Don’t Be the Cause of Delay

Whatever you do, whether you’re at home, at work, on queue at the grocery store, the airport, the train station, on your way to a meeting, a practice, a dental appointment, etc.—always be mindful of other people’s time, not just your own. Don’t be the cause of delay to others simply because you weren’t able to leave on time due to your usual dilly-dallying, which isn’t even usually done deliberately. Don’t get used to thinking that people don’t have other better things to do than wait for you all day. If you’re the head of your department and have subordinates who can’t help but look to you for good leadership, don’t get so used to keeping them waiting because you know they won’t complain. Show some respect by being considerate.
